Preview Monday

Posted on | June 16, 2008 | 25 Comments

Just in time for the hot summer weather, I’m almost ready to release my first self published pattern. Here’s an advance peek so you know it’s not just a figment of my imagination. Modeled by the lovely Jess, Ms. Yarnmonster herself, the design is being tech edited and I hope to have it available for sale in a week or two.

    That is really cute! I love the lace detail at the hem– a little unexpected! It does look like a perfect summer knit, nice timing.

    Oh, the little peek of lace at the bottom is a great idea! Does the lace at the neckline go all the way up to the seam? It looks like there might be a bit of stockinette, but hard to tell from the picture.
    Beautiful design, can’t wait to see it pop up on Ravelry queues :)

    I love this! Definitely looking forward to the pattern!

    Do you think it would work to add set-in sleeves? (We’re chilly year-round where I live)

    It looks great! Do you have estimates yet as to how much yarn the different sizes uses?

    Very pretty, but I’m dying to reach into that picture and brush her hair back off her shoulders to see the lace better! :)

    It has your signature, that’s for sure. I like the way you put the pattern onto the bottom edge again as an accent.

    Connie, it looks great – perfect combo of feminine and easy casual-chic! I love it!! I could get a ton of wear out of this cami, I may have to clear my knitting plans ;)
