Norah’s Knit’s: Getting Ready for Photography

Our five days of photography starts today! Last week I steamed a lot of garments and I’ve gotten to know all 90 something of them inside and out. Of course, I was already pretty familiar with the ones I designed, after making up new cable patterns writing instructions for my knitters. Still, there were a few surprises.

For instance, I was taken by the wrong side of this cable pattern AND the bigger surprise for me was that I planned the piece as a poncho and it turns out it really wants to be a skirt. Amanda, Martha and I all watched in astonishment as the “poncho”  slid down of the shoulders of our dress form and settled neatly on her hips. I wish I had caught it on video. Maybe we can recreate it.


Here are a few more  teaser shots of the textures from my next book:

Should I name this next booklet  Norah Gaughan vol 13, as expected?  It is 2013 after all. Or, maybe I should skip over the 13, like they do with tall buildings and name it Norah Gaughan: Top Down.  Yes, that’s right – Top Down.  I swore I never would…but more about that later.

Maybe you have a clever idea for the booklet title.  Let me know!

  1. I do love the numbers all in a row on my bookshelf — but what’s to stop you from using “Norah Gaughan Vol.13: Top Down”, everyone satisfied!

  2. Whatever its called we’ll buy it! my suggestion: Nora Gaughan, Vol., 13, Taking it From The Top and Down.
