Today is International Women's Day.

Here on Canary Knits there's no shortage of intelligent, talented women discussed. That's one of the things I find exciting and rewarding about the freedom of the internet: all our voices are hear, and can be heard.

But, on to this week's designer!

I love the first design up, the pictured Roosh. It's a great starting point when delving into this designer's work.  With a style that's always wearable, bluedogwoolies creates knits that you have fun knitting and wearing. Versatile, useful accessories like:

Dimple. This wonderfully textured headband has multi-generational appeal. Knit one for you, grandma, and even your little niece. Keeping your ears warm in the waning days of winter is important, and with this headband you can enjoy the knit and the wearing.

Ibis. A cowl with lovely button detail.

Annie Boot Cuff. There's something about this piece, which "fills the gap at the top of your boot and helps keep you warm and toasty while looking great at the same time." So pretty! And, knit in bulky weight, you know you'll have an almost-instant-gratification-FO on your hands!

Blue Streak. This also makes a great last-minute gift. So warm and cozy, I can imagine wearing this piece to pieces in the cold weather.
