Indie Designer Day

Round these parts we're seeing the last hurrahs of winter. Spring is thinking about springing, and one of those perfect transitional accessories is the wrist warmer.

This week's designer, morepjs, has a lovely, lyrical pattern for just this garment in the pictured Rosalind Wrist Warmers: woolly wrist warmer pattern. I'm a sucker for a good cable, and these function wonderfully with the shape of the warmer itself.

There's also the sweet and eye-catching Baby Blue: A spiral baby blanket. And, as the designer says herself, "It’s very effective without being complicated, it works up quickly and makes a lovely gift for a new baby." I always love the "simple" knit that appears complicated to all those who see it!

Finally, there's her Astrum Beret, another great transitional garment. I like the unexpected colour combination in the original.
Keep an eye open for her work!
