I’ve shared a lot of information about Berroco since our “Get to Know” series started last year. Have you been paying attention?
I met Bev Rykosky on my first day working at Berroco. Her friendly face greeted me (as it has every morning since) when I walked through the door. She sat and talked with me for about 15 minutes before everyone else arrived. Read more
Norah Gaughan is probably the first name that pops into your head when you think of Berroco‘s design team. And why not? Norah’s fabulous. But it’s her collaboration with our other designers, that keeps Berroco patterns fresh season after season. Read more
I was really excited to get to work today and cast on for our Berroco Karma Knit-Along! So excited, in fact, that I forgot my needles at home (mental head slap). Off to a great start!

I finished my second garment last week and I really think I’m starting to get the hang of this knitting thing! That’s not to say it was without mistakes, though. I’m pretty sure I created the most massively horrible dropped stitch of all time (I haven’t done any research on this, but I’m confident it’d at least crack the top five).
If you’re like me, you may have noticed the oversized sweater trend and thought, “I could never pull that off.” Unfortunately, I sometimes “think” out loud. Norah overheard and was determined to prove me wrong.
