Another Great Customer Project or What You Learn In A Class!

Here is another example of a fantastic customer project. It is the Gathered Cardi from from the Spring/Summer '08 Knit 1. It is a great sweater on its own but what makes this one so special is the flower detail. Our customer recently took our Flower Class and realized that they would look perfect on her newly finished sweater. The colors are so pretty, I absolutely love it! Doesn't it look good enough to be for sale in one of the lovely Bucktown boutiques?
