Recently finished socks. After I knitted the first, I lost the pattern, and consequently the interest to knit the second.

Just finished a swatch of a pattern from Heirloom Knitting by Sharon Miller. The yarn is cashmere/merino laceweight (so soft) from ColourMart UK, and the needle was 3mm.

At last my copy of the Knitting Man(ual) has arrived. It contains garments for men, mostly classic stuff with a modern twist. Some lovely jumpers (sweaters) but I don't like the boat-necks.
