Mercedes Knits - A New Book

Among all knitwear designers, Mercedes Tarasovich-Clark makes it to my very very short list of favorites.  When I look at her designs, I can't help but think:  "I wish I had designed that myself".

Here's an example:  the Heliotropic Pullover.

It is simple and elegant (two qualifiers I prize when it comes to garments) and looks very comfortable to wear.

I love this one too: 

It is called Capture.  Again, simple, elegant, and so original!!

There is also the Artemisia Sweater designed for Mercedes' Craftsy class.  The sweater is constructed from the top down, with a gorgeous lace motif.

Thank to my Google Reader, I saw a new post on Mercedes' blog.  She is in the process of writing a book!  I bet it'll be fantastic, I can't wait to see it.

Also, check out the Artemisia sweater blog tour.  That,ll be a great opportunity to read about Mercedes' designs and discover new blogs about knitting and crafts!
