Indie Designer Day

Longoria - on blog
Designer: Katarzyna Tarasik
Blog: Fiubzdziu
Rav ID: fiubzdziu
Some Great Designs: fiubzdziu's Rav Designer Page

Generously offering her patterns for free, fiubzdziu is another addition to my list of awesome designers who utilize the power of simple lines, shapes and textures to wonderful results.
Pictured right is the fantastic Longoria's Something cardigan. I particularly enjoy the innovative twist on the open-cardi concept, with the tall neck and large buttons placed thereupon.
A great wrap-sweater is her Purple Haze. The lace is a simple repeat with great effect on the FO.
Her most recent addition is Romance, a subtley puff-sleeved cardigan that looks incredible with a nice leather belt. The neckline detail and sleeve-lace make this garment a perfect wardrobe basic.

This'll be my last profile of 2008 - back in the new year!

This Eva's jacket has been in my queue for ages - it'll be one of my first 2009 projects

Beautiful work. I have serious envy of that long neck Katarzyna has. In my early 50's, I have finally accepted the fact that I will never have a long graceful neck nor will I ever be described as sophisticated, sigh!!

That is absolutely stunning! Have a happy holiday. Looking forward to your blog in 2009.

I need that cardigan immediately. Thanks for another great profile!

And Merry Christmas to you!!

I am sorry, but this sweater has been deciphered by many people on Russian knitting forum board actually, and there is another person who posted that pattern for free on Ravelry in English. I think that making a knock off and claiming some other designer's work (who happens to work for Express) as their own is just wrong.
