good night, day

I am continuously in awe of Tara-Lynn and the beautiful & soft knits she produces for Good Night, Day. I have a few of her pieces already and adore them, as I have mentioned before. She has been a busy little bee getting ready for fall and I wanted to share her new lookbook, modelled by Kate Campbell and shot by Lauren Glegg.

This season I continued with my Good Night, Day theme of referencing the past, while maintaining the modern and minimalist designs. The pieces were created with traditional knits in mind, while using pure wools that are drastically thick and thin spun and new blended ultra-soft fibers (cashmere/silk/merino wool blends) and completed with bold colour blocking. This season’s designs also incorporate varied knitting techniques such as reversible chunky cables, subtle dip dying effects, every which way fringe details, mobius ribbingand lattice work to name a few. 

All her pieces are created with fair trade alpaca, merino, and cashmere wools. Tara-Lynn has generously created the coupon code FIELDGUIDED for 10% off items in her shop. Also, check out the Simcoe braided headband (which I have, and adore) in Vogue Germany, fourth photo down. Pretty cool.














I just wanted to say thank you for your sweet comments on my last post! I hope to share a few more photos at some point, but for now I am still quite overwhelmed with it all. Thank you, thank you!

  1. Wow! Vogue Germany, what a dream! Go Tara-Lynn!
    I want to look good in knitted headbands so badly, but it just isn't happening. You wear your Simcoe beautifully! I'm going to stick with the cowls and toques.

  2. Yay - great excuse to finally buy the pattern booklet! Like Erica, I dream of looking good in knitted headbands. What the heck, I'll give it another try! That Kingston sweater in the variegated blues is soooooo dreamy.

    1. Good idea! I wish I knew how to knit sometimes but I'm fine with having someone else do the work for me, ha.

  9. How sad that the Kingston sweater is sold out! It is just stunning and it looks like exactly the type of knit that one could easily live in.
