I had thought of Rogue...but....let me think on it. It's a lovely sweater, and not as "intense" as the others I've listed. I'd remove the hood, though - it's not "dressy" enough for work if I leave it on. (My boss is in the same camp as....you-know-who.)

I've managed to score She-who-shall-not-be-named's hard to find books on eBay, usually because the seller had NO idea what they had. I have the Aran book....got it for $35 (!!!) because the seller didn't post her name (luckily!), just posted it as "scottish knitting book". (Want any patterns? Let me know.....:giggle:) Ditto the Celtic needlepoint book....

What I HATE about her patterns is that she doesn't list the YARDAGE required, just "x balls of FancyExpensiveYarn" Nice...but a LOT of the yarns are gone now, and trying to convert/substitute (which, according to her, is Verboten!) is difficult. That's one good thing about Ravelry - I can guesstimate the yardage by what other people have used. Even if they DID substitute a different yarn (and the world didn't end. Fancy that!)
