I'm super behind posting about my Summer Twist project, Uhura.
For this camisole, I got to use SWTC's Terra yarn. I had used it for Broderie and I loved it. I find Bamboo too drapey and heavy to use on its own, but paired with cotton (and at a finer gauge), it makes a beautiful fabric; and somehow the blend influences the way the yarn takes up dye, resulting in a delightful tweedy color.
The wonderfully funny Julia named it Uhura (I had rather unimaginatively called it Lace Camisole) and I think it's so appropriate. There's something about the bodice band, the keyhole, the notched hem, and of course the color, that is reminiscent of Starfleet uniforms to me.
Here's a shot of the back:
I made it a modified racerback because I love tanks that cut in a bit more at the armholes at the back. I just find them more flattering and comfortable.
As usual, the folks at Twist photographed and styled the garment perfectly -- with a sense of fun and yet showing the details of the garment. It's obvious that they love knits and have put a lot of thought into how to showcase them. I'm enjoying seeing the first FOs of Uhura crop up on Ravelry.
A new issue of Twist will be out on Sunday. The creative forces behind Twist have put up some great teaser videos here and here. Sunday can't get here quickly enough!
