What inspires: Shapes from Nature – Hexagons

It feels like ages since I wrote Knitting Nature, but the process of writing it left an indelible influence on my work. Spirals, fractals and other shapes in nature provided great fodder for designs in my book and still rattle around in my head, but it’s polygons, especially hexagons, that have become a permanent part of my design vocabulary.

Get to Know Berroco: Norah Gaughan

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!

Fall 2012 Favorite Knits

While we’re proud of all our new patterns, it’s always fun to see which knits are the favorites among our fans.  That’s part of the reason we love having a Berroco trunk show at the historic Slater Mill in Pawtucket, RI.  It’s a rare opportunity for the local knitting community to try on samples and chat with our design team – and it’s a lot of fun!
