Norah Gaughan’s latest collection is inspired by angles, twists and turns. They are knitted in subdued colors and presented in stunning knitted structures with a nod to architectural forms in the 1930’s and 40’s.
We are happy to host several of the garments featured in Norah Gaughan Volume 14 now until May 14th. Many of the designs feature the Berroco yarns Folio and Maya. They are excellent options for summer garments and come in an array of happy colors. We hope you’ll drop by the shop to see them in person soon!
Save the date! Stephen West of Westknits and Steven Berg of StevenBe will headed our way during the 1st annual Fiberlicious Stephen & Steven Tour. This magical team of knitting and design inspiration will bring their amazing energy, talent and creativity to ImagiKnit this summer.
We have two exciting events planned for the evening of Monday 6/30 and Tuesday 7/1. On June 30th, Stephen and Steven will be showing off their favorite shawls and accessories in a trunk show extravaganza. The guys will consult with any participants and help them pick out the perfect yarn combinations to make their own masterpieces.
On July 1st, Stephen West will be here to teach an exclusive workshop on shawl-making. Learn the garter tab cast-on and different ways of creating angles and edges from the mastermind himself. Using unique combinations of yarn-overs, increases, shaping and color variation, you’ll learn to customize your own design or modify Stephen’s Boneyard shawl!
Stay tuned for more details!
