Indie Designer Day

Some Great Designs: lunarchick's Rav Projects Page

Firstly, there's the irresistible Emerald Isle Aran Vest. This pretty knit was inspired in part by some Medieval prints. That is entirely up my alley. Not only is the yarn one of my faves, it's in an entirely perfect shade to complement the designed cables and overall "feel" of the garment. Medieval prints indeed!
Fortunately, lunarchick mentions on the project page that it may be written up and offered for sale. This, I'm sure, would be a popular knit!

It's really cool when you can see a particular designer's aesthetic in her designs. This fanciful/historical bent is continued in her Stormy Glen Cowl/Hood.

Not only is lunarchick adept with cables, she can knit a sweet lace too. Check out Phantom's Delight (a fantastic name, btw).

And, I always enjoy a good mod. Here you can see her version of Jezebel's Rock-a-billy Sweater based on Marnie MacLean's Astoria. That fair isle? So cool.

I love her whole design/style aesthetic! And I hope she comes out with a pattern for that vest -- it's fantastic.
