A sunny day in June and the INNER WILD Elven Strappy Top makes summer frolics brighter. A little elven top for all kinds of adventures in secret places with thin i-cord straps, hand knitted in Noro’s pretty jewel, rainbow effect yarn. Hand knitted in beautiful Noro Silk Garden yarn that’s 45% silk, 45% kid mohair and 10% lambs wool; soft and luxurious and with a wild feeling to it. The colours are different on the front and back and blend in a muted haze of in-between hues from gold to sage and navy, emerald to hazel and goldenrod, so beautiful. I wanted to let the yarn and all its colors sing and so I made a simple crop bodice design with spaghetti hand knitted straps so it sits lightly against the body like a leaf. There’s been some self-seeding of Strappy Tops over the past few months including one in Noro Shiro cashmere and silk yarn in pink and green, part of the Zenko Set above. And two commissions in fairy sparkly sequin yarn. First the INNER WILD Celestial Catkin Strappy Top and Sleeves Set below. And Celestial Capri Strappy Top and Sleeves below. This design is so pretty on its own against the skin and wonderful as a top layer in winter, even over a favourite sweater.
