Crochet & Knit Genius: Vanessa Montoro

Haven't heard of Brazilian designer Vanessa Montoro? Her crochet and knit fashion genius is a recent discovery for me, too.

Vanessa's designs have a timeless, rustic elegance and are crafted from luxury handspun threads of wool and silk which are dyed with pigments from organic materials such as coffee, mate-herb, and eucalyptus.

How wonderful...I wish I spoke Portuguese (at least I think that's the language she's speaking) so I could hear the description! Especially love that creamy tunic-length sweater about halfway through!!
