It’s a bit of a pattern heavy month this May! Introducing Morning Mist!
Here on the Northern CA coastline morning mist is a common sight, as the sun rises burning off the fog that comes in from the ocean overnight. I was so happy the weather cooperated when we had our little shoot!!
Morning Mist is a comfy but elegant spring top featuring a textured lace panel on a stockinette body. Cotton Comfort by Green Mountain Spinnery is a wonderful cotton wool blend yarn that is warm yet breathable, making a perfect garment to take you into the warmer, or cooler months. I love lace back shirts, but chose a pattern that wasn’t too open to avoid seeing straps underneath. The simple drop-shoulder body creates its own cap sleeves, making for quick knitting, and comfortable wearing. Bonus; totally seamless!
