Indie Design Spotlight – Somebody Knit This For Me

Do you want to know a sad truth about designers? A lot of us do not have time to knit for fun anymore – especially epic projects that require a commitment of weeks or months. There are so many breathtaking patterns I see from other designers and my first thought is “Somebody Knit This For Me.” Today’s spotlight celebrates those most amazing and beautiful epic projects that I wish I time to make.
