Pretty whimsies is a wonderful way to describe pomoboho's (which is such a great screen name!) designs.

My first profile of this designer was almost 3 whole years ago, and since then she's been creating even more lovely little patterns in both knitting and crochet.

The pictured pattern here is Lady Parker's Beret. Perhaps I just have a thing for lovely berets, but I think this is a very attractive pattern; nice texture, great wearability, and certainly a practical piece of crochet.
(ps: I love the fibrey flames and the adorable sweater she's wearing. In fact, she inspired me to knit one of my own, lo these many years ago....)

I have little daydreams that I could be a ballerina (yes yes, I know...) and this pattern, Sugar Plum Thrums makes me want to get out there and earn those pointe shoes.

Once you've done your dancing, you can sit back and relax with these sweet Twee Cups. These are really very adorable, lacey crocheted tea cup and saucer! They're actually functional too, good for holding little objects and looking lovely!

While you're sitting "sipping" on your Twee Cup, you can cushion yourself with the pretty Pinwheel Pillow. I really love this pattern. I can't wait to make some up for me!

Also, you can check her out on the LYS The Loop's blog. It's a lovely place to visit!

Wow, I can't believe that was 3 years ago...

I discovered Morgan and her designs through that profile you did of her and have been loving her blog ever since. Such creativity!
