Filati Men Special 5 Pattern Book

I am searching for this pattern book from Lana Grossa wool company. None of their products are available in the southern hemisphere; I rang my contacts in the US but those stores do not have this book in stock.

I have the other Filati Men's editions and I like the patterns a lot. I wish I could order the wools locally.

I'm wondering if you guys would be on the look-out for this pattern book and let me know the details of the LYS which carries it so I can order it by phone. I would really appreciate any assistance here.

The Basket-weave scarf

Here is a picture of the scarf in its current state.

Willow has a new sweater

Hey guys -

just finished my kitty's first sweater - I took a dog pattern and improvised it (annoying my cat along the way) to get her a new warm coat for the winter! I made quite a few mistakes while making it, but I learned a lot and I am ready to try another one! (lots of other projects in the works though so not sure how quickly I will be able to do it, although a friend wants one for her doggy!)

:)

At last, a finished object

This piece of lace has been on the needles for what seems like forever. It is being given to a friend who is retiring and moving interstate to a sub-tropical climate where she wont need a heavy scarf. Lace seemed a better alternative.

The yarn is merino hand-painted by Margaret Stove from New Zealand, and the design is by Sharon Miller from her book Heirloom Knitting.
