Typically, one of the most inspirational booths at the Estes Wool Market is Textiles a Mano, Laura Macagno-Shang's booth. Laura is a dyer and her colors are clear, modern and mix-and-matchy. I can't seem to escape the yarn barn without handing her my credit card. Last year, it was Elysium, which I spied in her shop. Everytime I wear it, another knitter runs and buys a pattern from TroubleDog Designs. This year, it was Denise Kubler's Summer Pullover, which in Laura's yarn Waimea, is a one-skein wonder. With flirty bell sleeves and ruffled hem, it will make darling cover up over a cami and leggings. And on size 13s, molto allegrissimo!
If you missed her at Estes, she'll be plying her wares at Sock Summit.
