Some finished and some new...





















My Gima silk top is finally done! I used a very simple stitch pattern for it: a combination of purl/knit to keep the fabric flat. The hem was decorated by a crochet border (reminiscent to a Brugge's lace). The top is very light; I will definitely return to Gima silk again.


I was so inspired by Linen and Silk jacket, that I had to make one. I ordered this wonderful Linen-Silk combo a couple of days ago, and about to embark on my own adventure: I will design the pattern myself, possibly using the same stitch pattern as for the top.

Tatyana, your top came out fabulous! I always fancied Gima Cotton, but it's gauge was keeping me at bay, may be for next summer! I love the red Linen and Brick Tsumugi you chose for your next Habu adventure! And can't wait to see what you will come up with!!!
Best, Olga
