Lacey Dream

Many of you asked me if I was going to write the pattern for the cardigan I wore while running the yarn tasting booth at Vogue Knitting Live in New York.  Well, the answer is YES and the time is NOW!

The Lacey Dream is made out of Lhasa Wilderness by Bijou Basin Ranch.  It is the perfect combination of Yak and Bamboo and feels like heaven to knit with and to wear.  It is also the PERFECT piece to make for yourself using this luxury fiber because it doesn't take very much!  Here are the details :-)
