What to Knit: Nancy

Nancy Bacon is not your typical grandmother from Minnesota. She’s 61 going on 20, full of energy and enthusiasm! We all had a great time getting to know Nancy as we filmed our latest episode of What to Knit.

Before the shoot, Norah picked out an assortment of designs based on Nancy’s broad knitting preferences. The finalists included Dickson (a poncho or skirt, depending on your preference), Silverberg (a cowl-neck sweater), Blish (a swoncho or a sweater that look like a poncho), Pohl (a loose-fitting pullover) and Navarra (a generous wrap) – all patterns from our Fall/Winter 2013 collection.

Watch as Nancy as decides What to Knit!
