Best mother in the world
Sherry and her daughter Emily stopped by the shop to show the completed silk camisole called Samba out of the Lousia Harding Deco book. The yarn is Lousia Harding's Mulberry pure plied silk in Sky Blue. Ooh la la! This is an extravagant (and extravagantly beautiful) yarn --but the result was worth it.
Sherry had to knit the bodice four times to get the gauge right, and wound up working it on tiny size one needles, but the Emily declares the fit is perfect!
