Collaboration

Have you ever collaborated with someone else?  Truly collaborated?  Not in a vague gesture toward teamwork or as a bullet point in a report for the office– I mean the best kind of collaboration, the kind where two people bring their talents together, sparks fly, and you end up far beyond what either one could have done alone.

The kind of collaboration where you end up with this:

This stunning new sweater, Pulley, is the result of a inspiring collaboration between gobstopper and our friends at indigodragonfly.  Designed by Kim McBrien Evans, Pulley combines the rich, hand-dyed colours of indigodragonfly yarns with a textured gobstopper collar that shows off an entire cake.
