Pretty! I love your yarns and you're off to a really good start on it. I hope you'll post more photos as you progress with this lovely creation. I've been trying to decide if I have what it takes to do a large project in fingering yarn. I've used it for socks but they're really a pretty small project. I have some sport weight that I'm going to use next for socks. It's a little thicker than what I've been using so maybe it's less intimidating. LOL
I hope someone has some good input on your patterns in a book question. I've not done much with pattern stitches yet. You're inspiring me to get more adventurous with my knitting.
This is the last time I'm frogging this project for the last time.
