With a fun, playful style, this week's designer provides us with a nice selection of accessories.

I immediately feel in love with Miska when I first saw it. How cute is this? I thought, wow, I have to check this designer out and see where this aesthetic leads her. I was most certainly not disappointed.

Cariad is a fast, simple and really cool-looking knit cowl, loads of beautifully textured fabric draping over shoulder and up around your head are sure to keep the cold away and look casually fashionable.

Air is another quick project, but this time an airy toque/slouchy hat (depending, of course, on how you wear it).

I think by now you all know I'm a sucker for a good pair of legwarmers: check out Label Case. Any pattern that looks this awesome goes right on to my must knit list. Combination of cables and yarn overs create a knit that can be quite functional, but also make quite a fashion statement.

what gorgeous designs, and so well photographed! That miska hat is awesome, I love how she takes something fairly simple but changes it up to look fresh and modern.

Argh! I only just saw this! So late! I have not been about much lately.
Thank you so much. That's a lovely write up and I'm very flattered to be featured!
