My latest WIP

Here's a photo from the cover of the Louisa Harding pattern book I picked up recently at Village Knittery. I am making this piece, featuring some Prism Roccoco (rick-rack style) yarn that I picked up on sale a while back at Yarn Garden (now Monroe's Dry Goods). It is such a special yarn I was stumped what to do with it. The help at VK was wonderful, made this suggestion, and I picked up 3 other coordinating yarns and have been having a grand time - have completed almost 30 inches of 43. Along the way I remembered the technique of weaving in the ends as you go, which certainly comes in handy in a striped piece like this. I can see using this pattern for lots of yarn that I have in my stash.
