If you have followed any of the spring summer fashion shows around the globe recently you will know that a predominate theme that has appeared in many of this  season collection,is  “Underwater”.

The highlight for this blogger were the mermaid cut skirts and dresses, the flowing fabrics, and the fun accessories.

Another common theme is the “crochet coverup”. Pale white and beige open knits and crochets have been featured in many spring/summer collections.

But what I want to do is use these elements and themes to create a “Knitting & Movies by the Lake” outfit.

So I came up with the following interpretation.

My next aim is to design and make some lace knit shorts and cover ups, and an mermaid cut knit skirt as the patterns I have found so far just don’t cut it.It seems that the most modern knitwear designs have yet to make it from the catwalk to the computer. 

But until I do this just enjoy this comic piece of knitting from the runway.This poor model got stuck with a knitted kelp beard. I LOVE IT.
