I don’t think she knows it, but Veera Välimäki is one of my favorite knitwear designers, if not my #1. Seriously, I casted on her Life on Sundays shawl as soon as my Flowing Lines was off the needles. And I have several other designs of hers I plan on knitting. Seriously, I love what she does.
The great thing about her designs is the simplicity of the stitch pattern that creates a stunning effect. Everything is straightforward, and yet the result looks more complicated than it is. It’s so easy!
Take the Life on Sundays shawl. Garter stitch, stripes, slipped and cabled stitches (which are super easily done without a cabling needle), and so many color pairing possibilities. Speaking of colors, I casted on with the Julie Asselin Piccolo skeins I bought at Twist Fiber Festival. Gorgeous, gorgeous colors! I might just need to buy some more!
