I like the neck detail, the button is from my box and I think from a suit I sewed for work in the late 1980s. I can't believe that I ever had the time or inclination to sew tailored suits, but I guess that everyone wore a suit all the time at work, and I didn't have the money to buy 5 suits!

Off the needles: Lamour
I have finished knitting my Lamour sweater. The pattern is from Rowan 44 which was published last summer.
It's knitted in the called-for yarn: Rowan Wool Cotton, colour is Grand (954). I knitted it on 4mm needles (3.25 for the moss stitch bands) but I am not even close to gauge. I knitted the size 12 and it's still rather generous on me. A nice pattern despite the poor charts.
