I’m happy for being able to design a feminine shawl with a worsted weight yarn!
Because is worked with a thicker yarn, Cadhla shawl is a fast knit project, perfect for Xmas gifts! Read more
At Vogue Knitting Live we received cute cards from Pantone & VK with a color selection for Spring 2012. I’ve loved the card and even more the colors! However, at that moment, I didn’t research about what was going on between Pantone, VK and this color list. This event is always so fantastic, there’s so much happening at the same time that we can’t afford to miss a thing!
But as a curious knitter and marketing person, I already had registered in my “mind files”: pantone/colors/fashion! And as I was browsing on the net, reading fashion magazines and observing fashion store’s windows, there was something here and there about Pantone and Fashion Colors! Read more
My main inspiration for Bettina Cardigan was to put to work what I have learned from fitting classes at Craftsy.com and at knitting events about a great fitting. I really hope that people feel beautiful and comfortable knitting and wearing it! My second inspiration was to create something that I would really love to wear anytime that has a girlie twist!

I’m super fan of this knitter writer (or maybe writer knitter? Not sure?!) and I’m grateful for her inspiration on this project! We met in São Paulo last month and she was looking for some yarn to knit the Boho cowl! Working with some math here and there I ended up creating a new cowl…. Ceres’s cowl, of course! A super fast accessory to knit in lace pattern that only takes one ball of bulky yarn. Read more
This week I saw at Facebook a note about the I Love Yarn Day next October 14. I had no idea that there was actually a day for loving yarn and it made me laugh because I tend to celebrate yarn every day when I’m at the computer or just dropping by my LYS!
The Craft Yarn Council is suggesting something bigger than that! The idea is to engage people to celebrate yarn trough teaching somebody to knit or crochet, doing something for charity, giving yarn as a gift, knitting or crocheting in public and so on.
