A lot has changed in our world since the Flying Squid left for boot camp.
No teen drama, late night conversations, genral lunacy and an endless supply of dirty dishes in the sink. It is very strange indeed.
I've been channeling all of my emotions into my knitting. Last week I finished a top that I'm going to wear at his boot camp graduation. The material is a silk and linen blend and the fabric is very sheer and I had to purchase a chemise to wear underneath.
The pattern is Flow from Norah Gaughn. I find it to be delightfully versatile piece, that can be worn dressed up, with either a pencil skirt and low heels or linen trousers and a red pair of Bandolini sandals.
Should I require a little something to prevent frost bite from the air conditioning,
I have a plethora of scarfs that compliment it nicely.
Scarlet of course.
Gold and chocolate.
Ivory, taupe and pale pink.
It's terrific with a pair of faded blue jeans and it looks
smashing peeking out from under my Tomato colored silk and linen blazer.
The pattern is well written and was a breeze to knit.
The only change that I made was to convert it to working in the round.
