    FIL only and for mad ducats

    they're usually spot released with little info leading up to it and aren't sold online

    could get a proxy, but you'd be looking at north of 3k I imagine with finder's fee plus shipping

    beautiful, but absurd

    There's one of those VISVIM cowichans for sale on SUFU atm. Apparently knitted by Hiroki's grandmother or something.

    Anyway. Doing some lightweight closet re-organizing and here's a partial shot of some of my knits. Lightweight epicurean. I wish that Jil metallic had fit me better :embar:

    That Schneider reminds me of Inis Meain's birdseye stitch sweaters:

    There was an even nicer one (IMO) last fall because the thicker yarn had donegal flecks in it. Here's hoping they reissue that in blue or green.
