My Designer Hero - 3KCBWDAY3



Classic yet Modern. Flattering. Comfortable. Versatile. I came up with this list of criteria for sweaters after knitting one too many disappointments. My knitting self-esteem was at an all time low and I despaired of ever making a sweater that did not scream "potato sack"! Then one day I discovered the fabulously wearable designs of Heidi Kirrmaier. Three and a half sweaters later, I am still amazed by her talent. Not only are Heidi's patterns fun and interesting to knit, they are also clearly written and easy to follow. Her designs are not flashy or trendy, but quiet and filled with simple, lovely details. Wearing one of her sweaters makes me feel like a million dollars. What more can a knitting gal ask for?

Buttercup

Grapevine

  11. Gorgeous, every single one! It's funny, I've seen each one of these patterns dozens of times, but I never twigged that they were all by the same designer! I'm definitely going to have to pay more attention to her designs now, especially since I've recently decided that I must.have. a Vitamin D cardigan!

  12. They all look beautiful! I've also been a fan of her designs for a long time, but I haven't knit anything yet, although I have many in my queue. I think it's time I try one of her patterns. I love the green you're using for your Nanook!
