Thanks to everyone who participated in our Scavenger Hunt Giveaway! I had a lot of fun creating the questions and it seems like you all enjoyed searching for the answers. In fact, everyone did so well, that I’m thinking I might have to make the next one harder! Keep reading to see all the answers and the name of our lucky winner… Read more

What I’m about to say may shock you. Before I started here at Berroco, I didn’t know much about Norah. Sure, I had heard her name and even queued a few of her designs on Ravelry, but I was mostly a crocheter and I didn’t pay much attention to those kinds of things. Looking back now, I’m grateful for my knitting industry ignorance. I would have been way too nervous starting a new job with “THE NORAH GAUGHAN” as my boss!
CR: What’s next for Cecily and Melissa?
We plan on working together again. That’s all we’re saying! :)
In the past year or so Norah and I have been interviewed in many, many places…magazines (Norah in the February 2009 issue of Knit N’ Style, and the Winter 2008 issue of Interweave, Cirilia in the Fall 2008 issue of Knitscene) online (Norah at Knitch and on Lolly’s blog, and both of us on the Knitting Contessa’s Knitting Contrissmas–Day 1 and Day 25). There have been interviews for Berroco (Norah in KnitBits #137 and during the Recession Collection) and for our favorite podcasts (Norah on Cast On, Stash and Burn #50 and Ready, Set, Knit #97 and Cirilia on Stash and Burn #46)…
NOW, I can’t imagine that there is anything else you’d want to know about either of us, but if there is I’d like to propose an experiment! We’ve recently started Twittering–if you’re already on Twitter you can follow us @berrocodesign. I’m opening up the Twitter floor (the nest?) to your questions. For the most part I’m the one Tweeting but if you have a Norah specific question just say so (in 140 characters or less, of course) and I’ll nudge her.
Speaking of technology, we posted another behind the scenes video in today’s KnitBits. I also stumbled across a Berroco related video that Kathy Elkins posted to YouTube, its’ from a trunk show event we did last fall.
