Back Cover Text:
A designer is constantly
at work. When Elsebeth Lavold takes a stroll in a forest or on a beach, she
invariably brings home all sorts of objects of Mother Nature’s making, quite
often to use as inspiration for her own designs.
Organic patterns and structures inspired The Out of the
Woods Collection. A typical example is the front cover design
Woodborer, which got its pattern, and name, from small pieces of wood,
penetrated by woodborers in the most beautiful way. The sweater pattern is less
erratic, but no less beautiful.
The spectacular full-length jacket Grove incorporates elements of a
pattern Elsebeth Lavold developed to mimic the grain on wood planks in knitting,
also used as an all-over pattern in the his&hers design named Woodgrain.
The scope of the collection is almost as abundant as nature itself.
Many of the designs have bided their time in her sketchbook for years, just
waiting for “the perfect yarn”. The exquisitely feminine sweater Pebbles
found an ideal yarn match in Baby Llama, and Grove
lingered in anticipation of Silky Flammé, the two
new additions to the Designer’s Choice line. Both yarns proved to be even more
likeable than when Elsebeth first swatched them, and they, and
The Out of the Woods Collection, are just waiting
for your needles.
