Indie Designer Revisit

Designer: Boo Knits

Original Indie Designer Post: January 13, 2012

Three and a half years ago I wrote about how this month's revisited designer has "floating, dancing, ephemerally gorgeous lace". True then, true now. Check it out:

One of her most recent designs is Chasing Rainbows (pictured), and perfectly exemplary shawl demonstrating that floating, lovely, lacy aesthetic of hers. This design is part of the 4-pattern Dream Collection, and features a wide crescent shape and beading.

Then there's MORTICIA, another lacy shawl, but one I wanted in particular to point out to you because I really dig the appearance of lace dripping off the edges of the knit. It was originally released as a Halloween Mystery KAL a couple years ago.

And if MORTICIA is any indication, you might want to get in on her current MKAL, Voodoo. If lace and MKALs are your thing, then I'd say Boo Knits is a safe bet for a happy knit experience! The first clue will be sent out on October 1.

Such a beautiful edging on the shawl!

Boo-Knits has an amazing catalog of gorgeous patterns and all are as easy to knit as they are beautiful. I couldn't agree more with your comments about this amazing designer!

There was a day that I would never consider knitting lace....then there was this skein of yarn I fell in love with. It was lace weight. In my hunt for the perfect pattern I found Boo Knit designs. I am totally lost in the world of Boo Knits, happily knitting lace non-stop. The most beautiful patterns and so well written even a beginner can do them.

I've just recently started buying some lace-weight yarns (including some reeeeally pretty ones from my recent trip to Portland, ME), and I'd already queued a few of Boo's designs. I'm intrigued by this MKAL. I haven't done one before, but I'm thinking maybe this would be a fun first one...
