The flowing lines and sinewy "whiplash" curves of the Art Nouveau movement were embodied in dance by Loie Fuller, who was so famous in her day that she had her own exhibition at the 1900 Paris World's Fair. The romantic beaded motif and feminine shaping of this top reflect a modern sensibility that gives a nod to its Art Nouveau roots. Loie is made seamlessly in the round, all in one piece with the barely-there sleeves picked up and knitted from the body. There is a knitted hem, so as not to disturb the even surface of the stockinette stitch, over which beads are knitted in to form the striking curved column.

Eileen Casey is a designer from Ireland now living in beautiful upstate NY - where thankfully there is plenty of sweater weather. She has been knitting since she was 5, and couldn't imagine life without needles in hand. Past projects bring memories of life events back to her as vividly as certain scents do for others. Right now she tries to fit knitting and designing around looking after her two preschool daughters - secretly hoping that soon they'll be able to do the sample knitting for her!
