Indie Designer Day

SnowdropDesigner: Linda Wilgus

Some Great Designs: linw's Rav Designer Page

It never ceases to astonish me how much creativity and beauty there is out there in the knit-o-sphere!

Enter linw, and her very classy and highly wearable designs. The perfect example of her style is the Snowdrop Sweater Jacket (pictured right). This sweater has the feel of a gorgeous vintage design, but with the modern twist linw adds to all her knits. The Snowdrop is especially cool because it somehow, through an indescribable magic, makes a bulky yarn create a lovely and very soft-looking sweater.

Another good example of the vint-a-licious touch in her designs is her Bella Sera Shrug. Simple, feminine and way adorable!

And classy? Oh my! Check out her Chunky Fudge Lace Cardigan. This wardrobe staple is done up wonderfully with a lace detailing and pretty moss stitch along the edges. Here's one of my favourite lines ever written to describe a designer's inpsiration.

"There are two chunky things I like quite a bit: chunky fudge brownies and chunky yarn."

Gotta appreciate an incredible aesthetic! Can't wait to see what comes next :)

I love the Snowdrop cute! It's so hard to find good patterns for bulky weight yarn, but this is definitely a winner!
