I last blogged about Ysolda Teague here - she's an amazing knitwear designer, and she has published a number of books with patterns for sweaters, toys and accessories. Cleverly, if you don't want to buy a whole book of patterns you can download one pattern at a time which you can store in your Ravelry account - Ravelry is a knitting and crocheting on-line community: create an account for free, organise and share photos and notes about your projects.
This mousie is still one of my favourites.
I also like Poppy the doll. It is a great shame I cannot knit.
Ysolda's latest books: Whimsical Little Knits 3 and Saturday Treats
