Indie Designer Day

Organic forms abound in the patterns of this week's designer, franticthumb.

Pictured is the lovely Inganess, a shawlette (also with longer, shawl instructions) with eye-catching points and very tempting texture. I love how this seemingly simple lace pattern comes to life in this shawl, layered upon itself when wound around neck and shoulders.

Amerie is another fine example of simple lace with fantastic, layerable results. This cowl, designed with ease of knitting and speed of finishing, works with a two row lace repeat and aran weight yarn. The amazing thing? It looks so delicate in the photos, I wouldn't have guessed it was such a heavy weighted yarn!

Finally, I'll point out her Hands of Blue
