New Threads FRIDAY!


...proof positive the cat has left the bag...

Little murmurs and echos have been rippling the landscape hither and yon, but it wasn't until I had eaten a really spicy bowl of Green Curry Chicken that I felt like taking a long walk. And my feet led me right into a Border's Bookstore on Lincoln Ave. where right smack dab in the middle of a magazine rack I spied this!

2008 Interweave Press
Pattern: Interweave Knits Spring 2008
*Aleita Shell*
Designer: Bonne Marie Burns
Yarn: Plymouth *Linen Isle*

Now, but of course, I've known about this for quite awhile (sample to press takes about the same length as a normal birthing process) but now that it's hit the stands: WooHoo! Happy Happy Dancing Days here @Chez Chic! My little feet just busta move under the desk as I typed this!

The Aleita Shell is a great wardrobe piece that branches the seasons and mixes well with jackets or a cami. IK shows it over a blouse, making a great look for business. And in the interest of science and fun, we thought we'd show you the Aleita Shell, as well, a shell! Here you see a size 38 (1" positive ease), worn by a lovely and very curvaceous model. The design of the piece works well with different figure types; the upper bodice has flexibility and range to accommodate different bust sizes well.


Although the shell is shown in a linen blend, the range of yarns that would work well with this piece would include wool, cotton and silk or hemp yarns. It's knit in one piece to the underarms and has very minimal finishing. I'm thrilled to bring it to you! Thanks IK!
