I plan to write blog posts to feature some of my designs, my projects and showcase other participating designers.

DAY ONE

Today is Nov 19 and the first day of the Gift-A-Long.  I want to share a designer who caught my eye.  Her name is Faye Kennington.  She is from Vancouver Island, a place very dear to my heart.  He designs range from sleek and simple to funny and awesome.

Featured Designer- Faye Kennington (Ukee Knits)

Here’s two of my favorites.

Sasquatch – Honestly, I need this.

Whitefish Ripples – But this is the one that I’m going to make.  Isn’t it gorgeous?  The yarn in the photo is Polka Dot Sheep Stumptown DK and is from the Knit’n’Needle yarn shoppe in Whitefish.

I plan to knit this using some fun Noro Matsuri in a green that reminds me of the many wonderful trees in British Columbia.  Be sure to follow my blog to see progress photos and a pattern review!  I’m super excited.
