Indie Designer Day

PhotobucketDesigner: Aanika Silvennoinen
Blog: neulontai
Rav ID: SusiVilla
Some Great Designs: SusiVilla's Rav Designer Page

This week's designer has a selection of great garments and a warm, homey and fun style.

First up is the adorable Myssykkä. A free ear flap bat pattern, this knit is functional, with just the right amount of femininity (love that stitched on heart!)

A boldly patterned shrug, Kukka (means flower in Finnish) features great graphic patterns along the front, highlighting any beautiful handdyed yarn.

Another cute topper, Metsän Lapsi, showcases her skills in hat design. Another cool bit is the name: in Finnish it means child of the woods or Woodland Child.

Keep an eye out for susivilla's designs. You might see a new, independent design enterprise starting up soon!
Aanika let me in on a whole bunch of interesting information, which I'll just quote here for brevity:
"Susi - Villa means Wolf - Wool in finnish… i’m a knitting (wild) dog person. However everyone interprets the spanish meaning of it."
"there aren’t many wild wolves left in finland, but i live right up north in lapland which is somtimes called the borderline to wolf land!"
