Indie Designer Day

Spring certainly has sprung!

In a lovely, delicate, and decidedly printemps-esque shawl ijinstitches gives us First Blush (pictured right). I've been searching for something to knit when the weather gets warm, and this one immediately caught my fancy.

For another jaunt into lovely shawl territory, take a peek at her Spring Peach Shawl. This knit is so awesome! It combines dropped stitches and cables to create a lacy effect, while maintaining a modern look for this pretty accessory.

I'll tempt you with just one more of her knits, the Opulent Armwarmers. I, as do many of you, work in a climate-controlled habitat, which regulates summertime indoor temperatures to a shockingly low degree (haha, you can't stop the pun train baby!)
These armwarmers are a beautiful and rather elegant way to maintain some warmth indoors. Simply slip the sweeties off when you step outside for your (sweltering) lunch break!

ooh, those are such pretty knits! I especially love first blush, such a nice fresh take on shawl edgings.

Beautiful!! I think it's only a matter of time before I become a lace addict with all these lovely patterns out there...
