Knitting has been an important part of Rachel Horsting’s life since she was a little girl. Rachel’s mother taught her the basics when she was four and by the time she finished college, Rachel was coming up with her own designs. She continued knitting while she pursuing her master’s degree, working as a high school teacher and raising a family. She even continued knitting as her family traveled abroad for her husband’s research. Read more
As many of you know, we switched manufacturers last year, which caused a delay with some of our Berroco Comfort yarns. It was tough because – as much as we knew we wanted to take the time to make sure our new Comfort yarn was as good or better than our old Comfort yarn – we HATE backorders! I’m sure you can relate.
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).
Want to be the star of our next “What to Knit” video? You’d get to spend the day with the Berroco Design Team being personally styled by Norah in garments from our Fall/Winter 2013 collection (before we’ve even released them to the public!). That’s not all – we’ll also have a professional hair and make up artist there to make sure you look and feel your best on camera! Still interested? Read the details below.
When it comes to choosing a project, especially a garment, it isn’t just about how well you knit, but also, how well the finished object will fit. That’s one of the reasons I love our traveling trunk shows! You can touch and try on one of our new designs before you invest all of your time and energy making it.
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!
