A colorwork designer you MUST check out

Hi there, today is yet another rainy day here in Normandy. There is no longer any doubt possible, summer is officially over! Way too soon I think as we are still in August but hey, nothing we can do about that I guess!

Yesterday I was browsing Facebook and I came across a picture from someone who was knitting an absolutely gorgeous butterfly sock and in the comments below people were saying they loved her designs so I went straight to Ravelry and found her pattern store. And oh boy!!!! I just had to share this with you right away!

If you like colorwork/fair isle or want to give it a try but have been waiting for the right pattern to come along. Wait no more! I absolutely love her designs! I like them so much that I actually bought 6 of her patterns just now! I’m going to knit some for myself, some for my older daughter and some for my sister.

So who is this incredible designer? Well, here’s what I know. Here designer name on Ravelry is JennyPenny but her pseudo is JennyPenny74 and she lives in Sweden. And her shop has 45 designs. Mostly mittens and socks and some of the designs are available as both socks and mittens. There are also a few shawls there too although I fell in love mostly with the socks and mitts.

Here are the patterns I just purchased and plan to knit with my hand dyed yarns:

www.knittinginfrance.com Lova (love owl) socks

www.knittinginfrance.com Irma horse mittens

www.knittinginfrance.com Lova Owl mittens

www.knittinginfrance.com Calaveras mittens

www.knittinginfrance.com Garden Fairies mittens

So if you like colorwork, you should definitely go over to Ravelry and check out her designs!

Thats all for today! Hope you are having a good day with better weather than I am:) Until next time, happy knitting/crochet/spinning etc
