i had seen her work
here, there and everywhere,
i had never met julia until this year
when our paths crossed
as we both were working on
our new books
in collaboration with classic elite yarns.
you know those people who
an interesting story to tell?
and you know the ones whose infectious laughs
can fill a room with something that just wasn’t there
before they arrived? that’s her, too.
a fabulous designer.
she has this way of throwing in a twist
that makes a pattern oh so much more than it would have been without her.
do you know what i mean?
i love patterns that teach me something new.
especially the ones where that ‘new’ is so cleverly done
that i’ve learned something before i even have time to be
concerned that maybe i won’t be able to master the technique.like how in the lanesville pullover she takes stripes,
then nonchalantly adds slipped stitches and i-cord,
so before you have time to trip over the idea of something new,
you’ve already done it and it looks great.
julia’s mind works like that
because she’s clever in the very best kind of way.
‘from folly cove‘ is available in hardcopy form on-line at webs

Yay! This one is one of my favs…such clever details!
My first big foray into colourwork was Julia’s Plum Rhonda a la Turk from #knittymag. This would be another great first.
Ooops, Rhondo, not Rhonda. That was going to bother me 😛
Julia has the most AMAZING details in her patterns. Love this collection!
i would like the opportunity to knit any of these pattern…very lovely
