Go on an adventure with Martha Wissing and Knit Stars!

Do you know Martha Wissing? Martha has been a Berroco collaborator for many years. She owned a yarn shop here in Rhode Island, where she carried Berroco yarns and designed patterns for the shop. Then she joined the Berroco Design Team and designed many wonderful pieces, including the popular Schoonheid shawl, a free pattern for Berroco Ultra® Alpaca Light. When her husband's military position required moving away from Rhode Island, Martha carried on knitting and designing, creating beautiful pieces that she published independently (including the Rock Street Tee and Verde Poncho shown below), as well as designing a few pieces for Berroco Portfolio and Amano Yarns collections.
Recently, Martha traveled to Peru to visit the Amano Yarns team and to film a video tutorial for Knit Stars! If you don't know, Knit Stars is an online video series featuring some of today's top designers, instructors, and thought leaders. Each season features a specific theme, and this year the theme is "Alpaca My Bag"!

Watch this short video and get to know Martha a little better!
It's no wonder that Martha and the Knit Stars team teamed up with Amano Yarns—Amano is best known for their beautiful, high-quality alpaca and alpaca blend yarns. And Knit Stars is known for delivering awesome inspirational and instructional video content from renowned designers and teachers and taking their viewers on armchair tours of the world through knitting and crochet. This year, Knit Stars will have a special focus on South America and sustainability, and together, Knit Stars, Amano Yarns, and Martha Wissing make the perfect team.
Knit Stars registration opens again on October 24, but if you visit their website today, you can sign up for their mailing list and get a free scarf pattern, designed by Martha with Amano Yarns' Eco Puna. You'll not only get to visit the Amano alpaca ranch with Martha and Shelley of Knit Stars, you'll also get great videos from Hannah Theissen, Andrea Wong, Marly Bird, Lucy Neatby, Susan B. Anderson, and more!
