I love Orangepiggy's Littledog on HC and Valeriepdx here on DS. But I haven't really branched out much yet...

Re: sooo, who's your favorite knitter.....

I think it depends on the kind of knitting.
Like Andrea of Dwell Wool Knits would probably be my top choice for colorway knits.
Lynne of Cabbages and Kings does awesome work with solids.
Katie of Strawberry Bottom Baby does awesome embellishment.
Tammy of Bella Bean's does super cute cargos.
Love Monica for Silly Stripes.
Teresa of Comfort Wool or Bodiejake of BluegrassBaby is who I would go to if I had a garment in mind but no pattern.
Kelli ? does the most beautiful Ridinghood Sweaters
My favorite skirty knitter is Marilyn of Eviepants
Etc. (sorry for all those I'm forgetting!) For me it really depends on the project.

(and thanks for the shoutout )

A lot of great knitters are really well known for specific products and there are several that I would go to for matching sets, vs several that I would go to for embellishments vs several that I would go to for sweaters, etc.

Check out the WIP thread here on Extra Fluffy to see what some knitters are up to (myself included ) and get a good feel for what different WAHMs work looks like.

Re: sooo, who's your favorite knitter.....

I could never pick just one.

Holly from handmadebymama is awesome.
So is Amy from Fly Baby Knits.
And Kira from Make Lemonade has dyed and knit some pretties for us.
Marilyn from Evie Pants is working on a vest for my older son right now. This is my first time working with her, but I saw a riding hood sweater yesterday that she knit and it was perfect and gorgeous.
Rosalie from Infiknit is wonderful as well and has a custom slot open right now. http://hyenacart.com/prod_details.php?id=95551&vid=2643
