I have a cold and a spotty, puffy face so I wasn’t feeling too photogenic today but we took some pictures. The camisole looks more dramatic, and you can see the pattern more clearly, over a black top but I didn’t have a clean one.

Name: umm, yeah, maybe I should steal Miriam’scamisole naming technique. But I think something will come to me. So far my ideas are Amaryllis, Eithne (although that has pronunciation issues I like both pronunciations and refuse to spell it Enya), Phoenix, Aurora and Firefly. None of those are really jumping out at me though so perhaps something else will appear.
Yarn: Laceweight 50% silk, 50% cashmere from PoshYarn.
Pattern: My own, it will be available one day. Probably in a few months time when I graduate, realise that I need a way to pay the bills and get through the backlog of patterns I have to write up. I’m very glad you like it though.
Needles: 3mm addis, which were surprisingly ok despite their bluntness. It really didn’t bother me much.
Now go and congratulate Kerry on the birth of baby Trinity
Here in the studio, we are definitely feeling like it is sweater time. Some of us are still finishing up accessories from our holiday knitting, but we are excited about making sweaters and the workplace chat is full of links to Ravelry and other pattern sources with riffs on what yarn we could use and how we could adapt them.
