Anzula Opalescent Top

One of the quandaries I always face is what to do with the lovely yarn I have in my stash. Being the thrifty Brit I find it hard to buy new yarn when I have so much at home. Fridays, when I run the knitting and crochet workshop at my local yarn store, are complete torture for me. Their sale bins out front with 50% off are always there taunting me on a weekly basis. 

It feels like I am pattern searching more often than I am actually crafting! Anyway in my stash I have several expensive skeins of beautiful Anzula yarn, purchased with a shop discount at a Trunk Show, which I've been trying to make something out of (even trying my own design) for what seems like weeks. Finally I have settled on a pattern. It's the Opalescent Tunic in the extremely stylish Vogue Crochet 2014 magazine. Of course my gauge for my yarn is slightly out so I've had to add additional rows and I've decided I want my tunic to stop at the hips so I have also reduced the width. However the wheel and shell design is very beautiful and it's going to be stunning!
