This week's designer has such a large body of work, I'm going to have to limit my post to just three pieces!

Pictured you see the very pretty (and Spring-like) Lady Grantham Hat.  This piece just shouts happy, sunshiny Spring. Maybe the more I look at it, the more Madam Nature will actually bring Spring around. Really, it's about time!

Her most recently published design is another nice one for the increasingly warm weather, the Darlington Cowl. "This is a simple, yet elegant, way to make the most of single skeins in your stash – and show off your vintage buttons, too." (from the pattern description on Ravelry).

Finally, here's one of her pieces from one of my favourite online knitting mags, Clotheshorse. The Bundle Up sweater  is the definition of cozy. Keep it in mind for autumn 2013! It's got a great shawl collar and delicious texture.
