Congratulations to Eileen, the winner of our Splendid Apparel by Anna Zilboorg (XRX, 2015) giveaway!
Thank you so much to everyone who commented! There were so many great recommendations that I thought I’d recap the recurring themes from the comments for you – 3 authors in particular that came up over and over again.
When I taught myself to knit (from a library copy of Montse Stanley’s Knitter’s Hanbook* and Leslie Stanfield’s The New Knitting Stitch Library) there wasn’t this amazing online community of knitters and blogs. There was no Ravelry, and most of the yarn shops were very different than they are today.
The Berroco team (Emily, Alison, Ashley and I) are on the road this week, presenting the Fall 2015 collection at The National Needlearts Association trade show in Columbus, Ohio. The show is where we get to share our new yarns and designs with yarn shops from all over.
Frances from booklet #355 Berroco Fiora is shows how great design comes from restraint. Frances was designed by Emily who has an innate talent for perfectly sweet details. In this case, it’s a simple raglan tee with lace edging and a key-hole button detail on the neck back.
