The camisole has been worked in a beautiful silk alpaca blend by Blue Sky Alpacas which lends a beautiful draping quality to the camisole.
The inspiration for the design was simple elegance. The idea was to create a lace pattern worked at the bottom edge of the camisole and continued through the fabric flowing into the lace straps. The lovely and simple lace pattern also adorns the center inset panel and the neck edge of the camisole.
The cami is worked in two pieces, front and back, from the bottom up on straight needles.

I learned to hand-knit at the age of 5 through my grandmother and have always cherished this as one of the greatest gifts of my life. It has provided me with a vehicle for my creative expression and I believe that knitting is firmly embedded in my DNA.
