I had a sample knitter whip up some shop samples from our new spring yarns..mostly garments that I also wanted to wear around the shop from time to time. Lucky for me, the weather this week is making it possible to go through all of them. It is hot out there!
This one is made with Berroco Seduce – a rayon, linen, silk and nylon blend that has a really interesting cord like structure. The pattern is Pucker, which is in the Norah Gaughan Vol 4 booklet here at the shop. It is a quick knit with lots of stockinette stitch and just enough going on to keep your attention. I kinda dig the way it gathers at the bottom and creates…well…a pucker. I layered it over a bright green tank top (otherwise the fabric is a bit scandalous) and paired it with cropped denim. The necklace is made from glass beads – I picked it up in Prague. New hairdo by Blown Salon here on King Street (ask for Dominique)…but be warned that she will insist on dipping bits of your hair in different colors of hair dye. For someone who sells hand dyed yarn all day, this is fun but I can see how this might be a problem for those of you with “serious” jobs.
