Norah Gaughan's affair with cables is more than a passing flame. The intricacies of her designs dig deep into the soul of each yarn to uncover its greatest potential. Brooklyn Tweed Arbor has a tight twist and a round structure that was created for cables, and it shows off the deeply ribbed shawl collar of Circlet Shawl equally well.
Amy Christoffers' rustic yet breezy Hope Cardigan would make a great addition to our summer closets. The 100% recycled fibers in Berroco Remix Light work beautifully with her deceptively simple yet unique construction. The eyelet dots are paired with decreases on the edge of the garment to create a subtle bias to the fabric as you knit from each cuff towards the center. Available in 8 lightly tweedy colors.
Of course the subtle yet brilliant Awa-Awa Wrap was designed by Olga Buraya-Kefelian. Who else could create such delicate intrigue within such a uniquely wearable piece? The reversible design uses 2 colors of Woolfolk Tynd held together to create a marled effect, and then delights us with "dots" of a single color scattered throughout, created with fair isle. This piece would be fantastic in either high or low color contrast.
