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.

This triangular shawl, with its beautiful color transformation, represents my own transitions in life, especially this year.
It reminds me of the season’s changes; it makes me dream of fragrant cherry blossoms and travels… it gives me hope.
It is simple. It lets the yarn take center stage. Its rhythmic repeats are soothing to the mind and the soul, if you’re looking for comfort while going through your own transitions.
