Light and airy, the designs by this week's talented knitter, JohannaM, showcase a great selection of delicate pieces.

First up is Fönn (pictured). I love how JohannaM described it to me, a "...big delicious shawl." And oh my, it is.
This is a very recent publication - so much so that it wasn't out yet when I first approached the designer about writing this here post. When she mentioned she'd have a new pattern out soon, I was interested and excited.
When I saw it was this fantastic shawl, I was really excited! I couldn't wait to post it for ya'll.

Now, here's the lovely lacy Kyrrð. I really admire the photos JohannaM has for her patterns. They're always attractive, and display her knits in a variety of ways. Really shows off the pieces to their utmost.

While she has a number of other patterns, I'll share just one last one with you: Strokkur. This pretty cowl is sized for toddlers all the way up to adults. It looks fantastic! (not having any children within my regular circle of acquaintance, I wasn't aware how supercool cowls look on kids! Great idea).

Can't wait to be stunned by the next beautiful pattern JohannaM publishes!

Love that the model paired her sunglasses with the shawl. So youthful. And its size is luxurious.
