Less than a year, and already this designer has plenty of work for me to revisit! Since the weather is chilly out there, I'm going to go over a few of her more snuggly, warm-keeping patterns.

New since June are some crocheted blankets, Tunisian Shell and Bargello. Both of these display crochet's strong points, with lovely texture and various effects of colour and modularity.

Lavender Path (pictured) is a top-down crocheted shawl, designed to be a stress-free, easily re-sized piece of needle (or  hook!) work.

And I couldn't miss out on pointing you to the Flowers and Tiles Top. I'm not a big crocheter, but I certainly am big on showing people what beautiful things crochet can do. This is a great top for the warm weather, but you can certainly layer with it and wear it in the chillier months too.

What beautiful designs. I am just picking up crochet again. Although I don't know that I would crochet any large projects at this point, this is certainly inspiring.
