After taking a little break from whimsy last week, i’m back with some knitting inspiration. I’ve been doing a lot of pattern research, on the hunt for my next few projects of 2012, and came across these two designers who really caught my eye. I want to knit every single thing!
Hannah Fettig (aka Knitbot) has published a new pattern book of nine designs, in conjunction with Quince & Co. yarns. They’re simple and modern but still look really cute and girly. I love the bike dress! You can purchase the e-book of patterns here.
You’ve probably already seen a lot of Stephanie Dosen’s Tiny Owl Knits patterns around the internet – I certainly had when I finally found her whole collection. They are the epitome of whimsy; owls, kittens, fairies, mushrooms – oh my goodness! My favourite has to be the oversized bear jumper shown here. I can picture this with dark skinny jeans and ankle boots on a frosty autumn day.
But, before I’m even allowed to THINK about knitting any of these lovely pieces, I have to accomplish one thing: Kate Davies owl jumper. The pattern has been purchased, the yarn has been ordered – I’m committed!
