Our April Facebook and Ravelry contests asked folks to tell us about their favorite designers. We got some great responses, and I thought it might be fun to collect the list and share it with you, just in case you weren’t already following those threads.
Julia Noskova has a collection of baby bootie patterns that will knock your socks off--no pun intended. Her collection of patterns on Ravelry is a great resource to anyone interested in a special baby gift that is as darling as it is quick to knit.
Veera Valimaki is a great choice. She is the designer who brought us Color Affection, last summer’s must knit project that has been the inspiration for almost 8,500 Ravelry projects. Our neighbor Robin is working on blue and grey version of this pattern that will look a lot like the photo above.
Evelyn Clark is a lace genius. You may recognize her patterns from various Interweave issues and other publications. If you are interested in making a commitment to a single epic lace project for summer, Her designs will offer you a terrific selection.
Corrina Ferguson is another wonderful lacey shawl designer. Her work has been featured in various Twist Collective collections, and offers some inspiring color combinations.
A big thank you to all the folks who participated in both contests, and brought these wonderful designers to our attention. Be sure to check in with our Facebook page and Ravelry Group page next month for details about our next contest. You could be one of two lucky winners.
