The Budapester last is wrongly accused of bulbousness and uglicity. When viewed from the height of + or - six foot, the walled toe looks nothing like the SF macro photos would have us presume.

These are some chunky pieces. Hand frame-knitted or hand-knitted?
Rc121, you best email Justin about the sale. Jubei, it really is hard to see that those G&Gs are extra wide. If this isn't a sure sign of last mastery, I don't know what is.
