I am a small business owner, stay-at-home mum, housewife and knitwear designer, most of my ideas are formulated and fine-tuned whilst completing other tasks. Part of the ground work for this design was completed while cleaning the bathroom and negotiating with the almost two year old over which ‘shoe-ys’ he was going to wear, hence the name ‘DayDreamer’.

This top uses Smooshy for the main body with the sleeves and a small ‘cut-out’ in Wisp. It is an excellent design for showing off a beautiful variegated yarn against a neutral background, showing off two highly contrasting colours or would also look beautiful with two similarly toned yarns.
