This book, the followup to FRENCH GIRL KNITS, has the most interesting patterns I've seen to date. I'm especially taken with the I-Cord Fascinator pattern, but there are other interesting ones as well, including the one on the book cover. Lacy thigh-high stocking patterns, hats, fingerless gloves -- the list goes on!
