Guest: Julie Hoover, knitwear designer, talks with Kathy about her new collection for Manos del Uruguay yarns.

They chat about her early work as a visual merchandiser and freelance art director and the fateful trip to her local yarn shop in 2006 that began her knitting career.

Julie also talks about her design esthetic, the importance of seams for the structure and framework they add to a garment as well as their use as decorative detail.

Julie’s first design collection for Manos del Uruguay, a mix of garments and fashionable accessories, will be available soon.
