Featured Indie Designer of the Day: Faye Kennington

I’m going with whimsy again for my featured designer choice of the day, Faye Kennington of Ukee Knits. I first started noticing her patterns while watching her work her butt off as the ad czarina for the Gift-A-Long. I love all of her patterns, but these ones really make me smile…

She also makes some great non-whimsy things, some of which are included in the Indie Design Gift-A-Long.

Featured Indie Designer of the Day: Annie Watts

Okay, I have a confession to make: I have a designer crush on Annie Watts (aka Wattsolak). It’s not even a little crush, it’s pretty big.

And it’s understandable really. Check out some of her patterns:

A scarf that’s a Kraken! Clearly she’s got a vivid imagination and can think outside the box. And then she turns those ideas into beautiful reality. She’s pretty awesome!

And just to solidify my not-so-secret love for Ms. Watts, I recently discovered that she also has a son named Atticus.  Enough said.

Anyway… you should totally go check her out. And join in the Indie Design Gift-A-Long!
