Anyone who donned one began moving sinuously, although some of us had not moved sinuously for years.  In her sweater it was impossible to do anything else – as you will find if you knit one.” What an endorsement!Sandra has engineered all of these patterns in a masterful way.  There is a single seam that runs cuff to cuff ensuring a wonderful flow of fabric.  There are sizing options, and a section in the introduction that clearly distinguishes the different silhouettes of the book’s patterns and the features of each. © sandramciverI think that my favorite may be the Sheer Beauty.  It is the most popular pattern in the book on Ravelry, and more than two hundred knitters have worked on this sweater.  But the one that might be the most fun to knit would have to be Strata sphere.  This sweater was designed to be knit up with Noro Silk Garden, a favorite yarn of mine.   The color changes in the yarn make it almost impossible to put down.  I have stayed up many a night working on Noro projects because I just can’t wait to see what color will spool out of the skein next!We hope that you can stop by the shop this week to look through the pages of this beautiful book.  The photos are stunning and clearly show each sweater from many different angles, sometimes with multiple models so that you can get a very clear sense of how the finished project will turn out.We can show you our gorgeous selection of Noro Silk Garden, or help you find another yarn option for any of the patterns in the book.  We hope to see you soon.
