10/30 Favorite Pattern or Designer

30 Day Knitting Challenge Day 10: Do you have a favorite pattern or designer??

Kelmscott
Kelmscott; I’ve gotten lots of compliments and thanks for this picture – apparently people didn’t think they could wear this sweater with jeans.

Yes: I really love Carol Sunday‘s designs (her designer page on Ravelry is here). I’ve knit two of her patterns: Kelmscott and Old Town. I learned new knitting and garment construction techniques with both patterns. I liked Old Town so much that one of my WIPs is another one that I hope to finish before the weather gets chillier so I can wear it early & often.

In addition to great pattern quality and challenging techniques, Carol is responsive and supportive in her Ravelry group and on Ravelry in general. She commented on my Kelmscott project before I cast on to recommend that I go down a size from what I was planning to make, which I did with great results. I’m also fairly certain she read through my extensive notes after I finished. I highly, highly recommend her patterns!

I knit, crochet, spin, and have done some experimenting with weaving and natural dye. I’m also a technical writer, mom to 3 boys, and enjoy gardening.
