The most fascinating part for me was getting into the head of a designer and how she thinks out her creations. What I didn't know was that the designer makes just one of her creations in one size and then her pattern for that one size is sent off to a technical writer who...God bless....comes up with the other six sizes. I can't even imagine what that job must be like. It was really interesting when she told us about her designing experience for Donna Karan and other clothing companies.
After the lecture we got to try on the items in her new book Norah Gaughan Vol. 16. Prime Meridian. They are all made out of Berroco yarns (one of my favorites). The pattern I think I would start with is "Calpe". I tried that one on in a beautiful charcoal gray Berroco Linus yarn. Totally soft and yummy. In Vol. 15 Maritime Journey "Halyard," "Hoist" and "Ropewalk" are beautiful....but I'd probably start with the slouchy hat "Mooring" on the back cover.
