age of empires sweardress over striped thrifted dress, originally uploaded by bitsandbobbins.

This dress knit and designed by Tricia Royal is my dream dress– whimsical and elegant from the bust increases to the neck shaping. it is so amazing. I hope she writes the pattern so I can knit it.

I’ve been looking at Knitting Art on Flickr all morning.

Knitters amaze me, sometimes. Women who are quietly making garments that fit them perfectly, and are beautiful– something a ready-made factory garment could never really be. This makes my world a more deeply satisfying place.
