Yippee, yahoo… the search for an assistant designer is over! I am so very pleased to announce that Cirilia Rose is now working with us in the Berroco design studio. Cirilia jumped right in, multitasking from the start. During her first two days we have had her editing Knitbits, planning future issues, fully participating in design meetings, swatching, and, even though it wasn’t part of the work agreement, we persuaded her to model for a few minutes too.
As many of you know already from, the book and from the audio slide show, the NGV3 cover cardigan, Violette-le-duc, was photographed “upside down”. I think it looks truly lovely this way. The flip was due to a flash of brilliance on Margery’s part while acting as stylist for the book – picking all of the clothing and accessories and making it all work on the models. Now, of course, folks would like to see what the cardigan looks like “right side up”.
To the right is Cirilia, styled by Margery, shown in the “right side up” Violette-le-duc. Thank you, Cirilia – and welcome!
P.S. Cirilia will be co-hosting this blog with me. Look for an entry soon.
