I have been selling my knitwear for many, many years; as my business grew, I knew I needed help creating my designs...the logical choice for me was to engage local women whom I knew were good knitters. I knew the yarn would be in loving capable hands that would create my designs with the attention to detail that it deserved. It gives me a great felling that my community is engaged and I contribute to the livelihood of our region.     Joan Kane

 Knitting and community go together for Joan Kane, who operates Ewe Design in Trinity Bight, Newfoundland.  Together with twelve home-based knitters, she has been able to combine a love of fashion with rural self-sufficiency.  Ewe Design is best known for a line of contemporary toques and beanies:  fresh stripes that alternate between forest and fruit colours, cozy woolens accented with textured novelty yarns, and Icelandic wool hats embellished with delicate hand embroidery.   Scarves and mitts are some of the accessories that complement the product lines.  Many things fuel Kane's flair for eye-grabbing colour, "Sometimes, it's just the wool in my basket that looks right or the colour combinations might come from nature."  Her Jelly Bean Row hats are based on the bright coloured houses that line the streets of St. John's.
