I can't believe how awesome this cape is.

It's Reykjavik, by this week's designer, dorabs. It looks warm, high-fashion, comfortable, and like a fun knit. This was my first experience of dorabs' design aesthetic, and believe me, it made me click superultrafast on her "other designs" link to see the other wonders she's created!

The November Cardigan is another great example of fashionable warmth and an interesting knit. I can see myself (and so many others!) happily sporting this lovely piece. I particularly like the long ribbing on the sleeve cuffs.

She's also great with colourwork. Here's Haust, (which means Autumn in Icelandic), a sweet top-buttoning cardi with simple and pretty fair isle running along the yoke.

Dorabs has plenty of other designs - check them out by clicking the link above.
