Luxury is a pair of handknitted cashmere socks
I've finished the hand-dyed socks and here they are, on my feet. They are so soft and silky and extremely warm indeed. When I was knitting the second one, I discovered that I'd misread the pattern so, one way and another, they are totally unique. I guess they will need handwashing, though - it would be shame to felt them into dolly wear after so much has gone into their making! Of course, the next pair of socks has already been started - not cashmere this time, and boy, does the usual sock yarn feel coarse and hard after working with the cashmere! Here is a link for the pattern: http://magknits.com/Sept05/patterns/jaywalker.htm. Not a lot happening here otherwise, got another bug. I don't know where they all come from.
