Agnes, and beyond

I'm delighted to present my latest design, Agnes, inspired by a simple long sleeved tee shirt.  The fit is just right, just as I planned for a change.  Interesting how the process of design unfolds.  I can count on my initial aim to take several turns during the making.  That said, I've sketched out my goals for the year: 12 designs or so, one a month...  The theme is mostly long and lean, like Agnes.  There's a cape, jacket (double breasted), a cardigan or 2, a lacy number, some of these with a trim fringe or ruffle, and probably a stole or cowl to round things out.

Agnes will be posted on Ravelry later today, at least that's my plan.  We shall see.

Johanna launched - happy 2012

Moving into colder weather, the diamond brocade of this cozy pullover is reminiscent of lace – winter lace.  Johanna's simple brocade repeat and slim-fitted styling create a romantic silhouette.  Bodice and sleeves are long.  Garter bands define the waist, neckline, and hems.  a 3-button placket closure at the shoulder gives easy access and a bit of additional decoration.  Pieces are knit flat, bottom up, with seaming.
