Indie Designer Day

Some Great Designs: beatka's Rav Designer Page

I've discovered that, along with colour, shape and texture are what first catch my eye about patterns that I love.

Take beatka's Abalone (pictured). See the wonders a simple edging of garter stitch can do. See the beauty of a basic stockinette paired with said edging, and (what is obviously) fantastic taste and a great artistic eye in choice of yarn colour.
She has even more fabulous photos on the pattern page, so make sure to check them out!

As of this post's posting, beatka lists only Abalone as a published design. I'm sure I won't be alone in pleading that she keep on designing! Can't wait to see more.

Beatka's also a full time yarn dyer, with beautiful handmade yarns which can be found on her etsy shop listed at the top of this post.

And, for a bit of a taste of her lovely yarn in action, here are a couple of patterns from her projects page, Purple Hat and Supermodel scarf.

I love that! I put in my favorites list. Hopefully I can get back to knitting again sometime soon.

Fantastic taste and great artistic eye are right! I loved browsing all of her projects -- she is definitely one to watch!
