This is a bit of inspiration to help with my Knitting Website design. I am re-designing the Simple Knitting website which is a bit boring and had to navigate.
I want to use illustrations and typography to create a Knitting website with a modern/fashionable feel.
http://eighthourday.com/ This website has a nice layout. The navigation is easy to use, the header is big with nice images. I like that the content at the bottom of the page shows snippets from the other website pages.
http://hokey.squarespace.com/ I like the design and feel of the website. You can tell its a fashion website straight away by the illustrations a stitching details on the navigation. I like the way your not overloaded with images/adverts and text.
http://www.metsdelacreme.com/ I love the soft colours of this website and the simple layout it has. The first page is flash, when clicking on an image it takes you to a webpage. I am not sure this simple layout would work for a knitting website.
http://www.llymlrs.com/ This is actually a blog but i like the design layout. It has the big header at the top, navigation along the side, to the right and the images/content down the middle.
