Anybody here seen the work of Elsebeth Lavold? She's a Swedish artist and knit wear designer. She was highlighted in the summer 2003 issue of one of the knitting magazines (I don't have it, so I can't reference the name...I just got one chance to drool over it in a collection of magazines at a LYS). She has a few knitting pattern books out that are beautiful...mostly intarsia/faire isle type stuff and one that has cable patterns that I'm totally in love with. I haven't yet bought any of her books, but I intend to. I'll be making an aran sweater (my first!) for a friend as soon as I've finished the baby onesie I'm knitting for a Fool.

BTW....for those who have knitted sweaters for adults...I was wondering if you can explain "ease" to me? Also, I've heard that there is a short row technique that you can use at the neckline on sweaters that helps them sit more comfortably accross the this technique usually in the newer patterns, or will I have to adjust for it? What would I look for in a sweater pattern as far as this technique would I identify whether it was included as part of the pattern?
