|Jo Sharp has been one of my favorite knitwear designers since she first emerged on the scene over 10 years ago. |
Her yarns have been scarce for the past few months, but there's a good reason: She was busy changing U.S. distributors, producing a new pattern collection, and restoring her self-named DK collection to its former glory with over 58 shades.
She has also developed a feather-light brushed mohair called Rare Comfort Kid Mohair, which I tested on the needles this week.
