Indie Designer Day

Designer: Katie Harris

When the beautiful Cinnamon Grace (pictured) popped up in and amongst my pattern searching I was astonished that I had somehow missed this pattern. It's so very up my alley, with sweet and simple construction, delightful textural detail along the edge and a fantastically descriptive moniker!

The designer, MrsMK, carries this aesthetic over into her other pieces, including the so cute (and free!) Green Cable Capelet. I love the look of cables on bulky yarn, and it never hurts to have a fashionable, quick-to-knit toppermost layer in these cold days of winter.

And to further demonstrate her knitterly dexterity, the Loopy Lace Scarf is constructed in yet another yarn weight. With lacey looping playfulness, MrsMK has made some sportweight look like lace in this sweet wee neck-warmer.

I put Cinnamon Grace into my queue last week, but for some reason I hadn't looked at the other pretty things she's done. Now I did - and boy, so lovely! Thanks for the reminder. :)

Oh I love that loopy lace scarf! I've always liked the bowtie scarf, but this adds a whole other dimension. Thanks!
