Interpretations Vol. 7 is here! This 7th volume of the truly heartfelt collaboration between Joji Locatelli and Veera Välimäki includes six themes, six words with two designs inspired by each word, showing a personal take on each of these themes.

The year 2020 added a layer of different circumstances to the book. The photographs were taken on the same day, but on opposite corners of the world; Joji’s in Argentina by Charly Barros and Veera’s in Finland by Jonna Jolkin.

I used to think, when I was younger, that one day I would see the path that I needed to follow in life. The path to security, steadiness, and happiness. I thought that once I saw it, all I had to do was
stay on that trail, and as long as I followed it, everything would be as it should.
As I mature, I realize I cannot find happiness in stillness. Life is not a simple path that you must follow to have everything you desire. I must constantly seek branches from the path in order to
find it.
Changing Paths is a top-down seamless sweater, with a modified saddle shoulder/raglan sleeve and a deep yoke. It is worked with 2 yarns held together: a Merino DK and a lace-weight mohair.
The body is simple stockinette stitch, but the sleeves are adorned with a changing path of eyelets, a simple lace pattern that will perhaps help you meditate on your path in life.
