Our love affair with cashmere has only increased throughout the years. Luscious, a new, L'Atelier Exclusive, is a blend of 50% silk and 50% cashmere that knits with a soft luster and incredible softness on size 8 needles. The two color twisted cables on the front of this piece create drama within what would otherwise be a simple sweater. Luscious combined with Stacy Charles' Crystal, to give it a bit of sheerness without a lot of exposure makes it all happen. I admit a little challenge with the cables, but the rest is so easy. The proof is in the pudding and we think this one is worthy of a little pain. Remember, beauty usually takes some time and energy to achieve.
