Last year, around this time, I knit my Lace Leaf Tee Shirt. I kid you not, the moment I cast off that project the weather turned awful!

So this year, in honour of the Irish summer we have Samhra – a 60% Cotton 40% wool three-quarter-length-sleeved lace-detailed top. Will the sun shine now? 🙂

The yarn is Mirasol Cotanani and the pattern came out of Aileen’s Top Down Set-In Sleeve class back in February. I’m going to write up the pattern but there’s a bit of fixing to be done about the fit around the armholes so a second version, possibly in Louisa Harding Grace is called for I think. Don’t you?!?


  1. Irish summer…if you knit a second Samhra, it is sure, we’ll have a sunny and hot summer and you’lll be responsible for global warming 😉
