Right from the start, you could tell that JaneRichmond would do great things. With a fantastic eye for design, she's published many, very popular designs over just about two years. Just check out her designer page on Rav - so many patterns with hundreds of projects!

This is easy to understand; she's very good at creating knits which are stylish and wearable.
There's a lot of wonderful patterns to choose from; today, I'll point out two for you.
Pictured right is Hart, a new and very pretty shrug. It's got all the hallmarks of a JaneRichmond design, right down to the great photography. I really love her outfit, and the flower in her hand!

Also, I'd like to point out a pattern you've (very likely) seen, the incredibly popular Sedum. A cozy, wonderful piece, this garment also typifies her fantastic style and great skill as a designer.
PhotobucketI really admire knitters who can have the vision to be able to create pieces that are beautiful, wearable, classic and yet have that bit of a twist that makes it their own.

JaneRichmond is virtuoso at this. I can't wait to see what she designs next!
