Indie Designer Day

Designer: Erica Mount
Rav ID: emount
Some Great Designs: emount's Rav Designer Page

I have some great patterns to tell you about.
Oh, and a GIVEAWAY!

Yes. But hear me out first. I want to tell you about a couple of this week's designer's patterns.

First up is the pictured Spear Maiden's Heart. A well done colourwork mitten is a great thing. The interaction of geometric and organic-inspired shapes on this duo-chrome design is very eye catching. And don't miss that pretty braid running along the bottom edge!

I'm also a fan of her Moonlit Coast mittens. It's inspired by the beautiful, rocky coastline of Nova Scotia. Check out the pattern page: there's examples in both two- and multi-colours.

The GIVEAWAY!
Well, as you can see, emount is a strong colourwork mitten designer, and she's very generously offered to give away a free pattern to one lucky reader! Just comment on this post between now and November 13 and let me know which of her pattern's you'd choose. Good luck!

Wow--all are lovely! I especially like the Giraffes pattern--like a safari on a mitten. :)

The Spear Maiden's Heart mittens are wonderful, and the name makes me think of the Wheel of Time book series.

All are so beautiful, it is a difficult decision to choose just one! They all have something that I like, the high contrast of the Moonlit coast mittens, the graphic lines of the Spear Maiden mittens,but I love the Giraffe at Sunset mittens the best!

Lovely! Thanks for showing me a new-to-me designer! I especially like her Endless Stripes Fingerless gloves.

Moonlit Coast mitts. I'm a sucker for the East Coast.

Definitely the spear maiden!

Oh, I'm not sure if the Moonlit Coast or the Endless Stripes is my favorite. I guess it depends on whether I'm looking for selfish knitting or gift knitting for someone very special.

Hard to choose just one design. If pushed Spear Maiden's Heart.

Thank you for the giveaway.
