How Norah does it

I love discovering how a brilliant mind works. Think of da Vinci's sketchbooks and you'll know what I mean. Want to see how a brilliant knitwear designer thinks? Then check out this recent blog post by Norah Gaughan. I don't have an iPad, but I could definitely use her techniques on my PC using Photoshop and Illustrator. My brain is percolating faster than my mother's old coffee pot!

Norah Gaughan: iPad Sketching


  1. This was fascinating, Julie. I love Norah's designs, many of which would be a total nightmare to upsize. When I dream of myself being a size 10 again, I'm always wearing a Norah Gaughan sweater.

  2. Ann, I know what you mean. Some of her stuff is easily upsizeable, but all of her geometric stuff seems impossible to me.

    I wore a size 10 in second grade. I'm so over size 10. :-)
