Once completed, I thought my cuffs were a bit
"plain Jane" even for Jane Eyre.
So, I added some pretty French lace trim in a linen color.
I think it was a wise choice
and even gives them a more period-look.
I think Charlotte Bronte would approve,
Teatime on the Moors
On September 24, 2011 the KAL projects were finished and we had tea party on Ravelry in the Jane Eyre group.
We posted photographs of our completed project
along with having tea.
Since Jane is from Yorkshire,
I had Yorkshire tea and scones at my tea party.
The KAL was so enjoyable
and inspired me to pick up my needles in the summer when I don't knit much.
I can't wait to do another KAL sometime again.
Thank you Lady Danio for organizing such a fun event
and tea party.
I love their mix-and-match patterns and famous knitwear that they are famous for. Did you know, there are even Missoni knitwear patterns in Vogue Knitting magazines from the 1980's and 1990's.
I am normally one of the first shoppers to hit Target when they have a big name designer collaboration. Most of the time, the collections aren't even out yet so today I hit my local Target at 9:30AM instead of 8:00 AM when they opened. No big deal right?
Oh my gosh, what a mistake that was for me, a seasoned shopper. I should have known better and I paid the price. The Missoni merchandise was already pretty well picked over and I heard there was a line out front before they opened.
By the time I got to Target this morning the accessory items were just about sold out.
I was most excited to see the Missoni scarves. There were only a few left at my local Target store. So I hit the road to other nearby Target stores and managed to find a few more scarves at each stop I made. I also lucked out and found a cute cardigan and silk scarf in Missoni's trademark zig-zag print.
I must report that I was most impressed that the Missoni scarves were made of 100% silk and not polyester. I know the Missoni family must have insisted on that.
As for the knits...my cardigan is a rayon and cotton blend. The fun knit scarves I picked up do have some acrylic content which I'm not that crazy about. At Target prices though...I better not complain!
The Missoni tags say:
Patterned After No One.
Priced For Everyone.
I feel pretty lucky today that I snagged some Missoni pieces!
Bonjour. I'm an American woman with a French name. I live in California and dream of Paris. I've been a "city girl" all my life but now live in a small city out in the county. I love to cook, adore afternoon tea and love to travel. So pull up a chair, have a cup of tea and savour the seasons with me.
I always have my camera with me.
I love my new camera, my Canon Rebel T2i.
Prior to May 2011 I shot with a compact Sony Cyber Shot and still use it sometimes. All photos and text on this blog are the property of me.
