This knitter knows how to use colour!

Can't you just see yourself wearing her Ginkolino (pictured) this summer? It looks like such a light, wonderful, riotous use of blazing colours. Now THIS is how you knit with hot pink yarn!

You can see her using a more subdued combination in her Peti's Raffinierte Handstulpen Variante 1. These fingerless mitts have no English translation (but if you can read German, you're in luck!), but just taking a look at their use of shape, colour and texture is very inspiring.

And for a final, and rather intriguing, use of stripes and solids, check out Peti's Bl├Ąttertuch. This asymmetrically shaped poncho uses a variety of yarns and colours to block in ways that I'm not sure I've ever seen before. It's an innovative poncho! The shades and shapes seem to dance into each other, and certainly remind me of butterfly wings. Another lovely summer knit!

Oh wow! I love all the geometric shapes she is creating. She has an awesome eye for colour too.
I think there will be some amazing things coming from her. Definitely one to watch.
