Rosa Mundi is one of my favorite roses; a very old Gallica rose in vibrant colors - always achieving lots of attention due to the variegated crimson coloring. Each flower is unique - just like us:) Still I Think that we have lots of things in common; one of them being the desire to glow a bit during all those grey winter-months! Not always easy when you want to combine a feminine and romantic touch with something soft and warm.
My Rosamundi ensemble could be the answer!
The Rosamundi 2-piece set consist of a lovely, soft camisole featuring a soft waistline and a deep scoopneck.
Flattering and feminine!
The lace-top has just enough see-through to be a tiny bit seductive, without revealing too much.
Wear it over the matching camisole, a nice top, a dress....
The Kid Silk from Austermann is feather-light and soft to next to the skin.
I enjoyed so much working this set! It fitted my knitting-personality very well: I could work on the tank in front of the television or travelling, wheras the lace-pullover needed more concentration.
And now when the pieces are finished I look forward to going out one evening showing them off:)
First of all: a Happy Year to all of you! A happy and healthy year, full of nice knitting, fun projects, lots of creativity!
And I do hope that you have spent a good time around Christmas.
At Christmas Eve I got the inspiration to make a new shawl! It was very good in many ways; as I often dream about making a shawl to present. On the other hand it was not the best of days to get a new knitting-idea! I had to wait to get started until the next day; and I can tell you that the needles went at high speed:)
Some of the great advantages about this shawl:
- The border was worked first, then the pattern over the mid-stiches,
meaning NO picking up of stiches for the edge in the end!
- The shawl has all the advantages of a triangular shawl and is even easier to
wear due to the straight bottom. Not so much fabric to tuck away under coats!
- I was amazed to see how fast the work was growing! Think that it is probably due
to the fact that colors are changed; it makes you want to see more and more...
- The femininity! That's what I always look for in a pattern; a feminine touch!
