Natalie is a prolific knitter. When she knits something that she likes, she may knit it more than once. She saw this pattern from Norah Gaughan Vol. 6 (which happens to be one of Berroco's top ten) and knew she had to make it. It's called "Choice".
This is the first one -- not put together yet, but you get the picture. This one is knit in Berroco's, Bonsai and Seduce
