A designer with a full resume of various garment types, Miljaska has given me quite the fantastic list of knits to show you today!

First I'll point out the Adele Skirt. Very cute and wearable - make sure you click the link and check out the pics of the back of the skirt as well. The pretty lines of lace detail are complimented by a row of button closures along the top band. Very feminine.

Moving on to a head-topping accessory, the Faye Hat demonstrates this designer's skill with cables as well as lace and a good drapey fabric. Short row-shaped ribbing on a hat = very cool.

Her Rust and Stone Cardigan is one of those pieces you can imagine yourself wearing all the time. Jut throw it on over a plain t shirt and comfy jeans, and you've created a whole new vibe to your outfit. One of my favourite parts of this piece is the sliiiiightly ruffly bit of edging. Just perfect.

Finally, there's Sunbeam: a nice, simple shawlette that takes advantage of a couple of your best, most wonderfully coloured yarns and a wee touch of lace along the edge.
