This designer has been publishing wonderful things since I profiled her three whole years ago.

Plenty of fantastic pieces have been self published: check out the cozy All Seasons Slippers (sized for men and women), and the beautifully dainty Lace Capelet Victoria  (pictured). 

And there's the many magazine publications, including Lacy Leaf Capelet (from Vogue Knitting, Holiday 2010), Summer Cardigan (from Plymouth Yarn) and the wonderfully textural Lava Top (from The Knitter).

All her patterns give me a sense of solidity; they're all strong, well-designed pieces, and share an aesthetic despite their diverse types. She's designed several lacy capelets, pretty items featuring colourwork, potholders, hats, scarves, cardigans, gauntlets and more.

It's no surprise that she's currently working on a book to be published next year in autumn. I can't wait to see it!

Thanks for the introduction to Elineof. I would not have discovered her otherwise. I'm thinking of the Audery capelet.
