Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences - The Academy was founded on 2 June 1739 by naturalist Carl Linnaeus, mercantilist Jonas Alströmer, mechanical engineer Mårten Triewald, civil servants Sten Carl Bielke and Carl Wilhelm Cederhielm, and statesman/author Anders Johan von Höpken.[7] The purpose of the academy was to focus on practically useful knowledge, and to publish in Swedish in order to widely disseminate the academy's findings.

Inspired by my recent trip to Sweden, this useful vest is named after the wonderful botanist Carl Linnaeus. Warm and feminine with a lovely drape, the garment works well as a stand alone vest or as an extra layer over a blouse or long sleeved tee. The yarn is amazingly lovely to work with, showing up stitch detail well and allowing the shaping decreases to drape elegantly. The pattern is worked flat in two pieces and then seamed at both shoulders before working a clever moss stitch neckband…

Linnaeus, and the Flower Clock

Linnaeus’ Floral clock ~ Linnaeus observed over a number of years that certain plants constantly opened and closed their flowers at particular times of the day, these times varying from species to species. Hence one could deduce the approximate time of day according to which species had opened or closed their flowers. Arranged in sequence of flowering over the day they constituted a kind of floral clock or horologium florae, as Linnaeus called it in his Philosophia Botanica, 1751.
