Times, they are a changin' here at Berroco. Cirilia has decided to move on to new adventures. We will miss her dearly and wish her all the best in her new endeavors. To fill her role as designer, blogger, tweeter, Knitbits writer, and so much more, we have recruited our former intern, Amanda Keep. So, welcome back Amanda!
Art fairs are one of the highlights of summer for me. I love discovering unique jewelry pieces and one-of-a-kind watercolors while meeting artists and hearing their stories. As we take a closer look at Norah Gaughan vol. 8, it's easy to picture fitting in with the artistic vibe while wearing pieces from this collection. Reminiscent of a painted seascape, the muted palette of Berroco Pure® Pima and Linsey™ sets a relaxing tone, and the cotton and linen fibers are cool and comfortable to wear.
The sweaters were named after artistic towns around the world, and each has shaping or details that make it special. Monhegan's cabling and openwork brings to mind the intricate detail of handwoven basketry, while the bold dimensional cable on Nespelem's neckband could easily catch a sculptor's eye. The striking lace inset at Salado's neckline lends imaginative flair to a basic tank. To find out more about Norah's creative process while designing this collection, watch our audio slideshow.
