Lavender oneness

This top was an attempt at creating a garment that is put together in a way that is effortless, smooth and graceful. All parts of this top are "fused" together by means of directing the flow of stitches wisely, so that they all join up imperceptibly.

I am so pleased with the result that I have got a plan to make yet another one for Clara, and then treat myself to one as well!

This summer top reminds me of warm and jasmin scented air in my parents garden, where I made it during my last visit. It brings up some lovely memories - I love that about the way knitting can conjure up images. It's like those moments ended up tangled in the stitches, a bit like non-verbal memoirs.
