LOVE the New Norah Gaughan!
I have a love of Norah Gaughan's knitting work, even though most of her stuff is for the *really* skinny people and probably not for me to wear. However, I just ran through the Preview for her "Objet d'Art" booklet for Berroco, and can we just say "WOW!" - Stuff that's original, exciting AND wearable. She's hit a good one here.
The above picture is "Veil" which is a really cool looking cardi that reminds me of one I had in high school that I absolutely adored to wear to my job selling pantyhose and purses to old ladies. This one is different in the shape of the back and shoulders, which almost remind me of a shawl or very loose shrug. Loads of fun there at my old job LOL, but at least it afforded me some of the classic shoes and purses and such that I still own because they're in fashion today. And it helped me refine a sense of style that I don't think I would be able to wear to my current "real" job!
