As mentionned earlier, a very lovely FO: Tychus from Knitty
The pattern: http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer05/PATTtychus.html
The yarn: Lana Grossa something merino something, 100% superwash merino (1 ball in each medium and dark grey)
The needles: straight 5mm
The boyfriend: knitter's own
Verdict? A nice relaxing no brain knit, knitted flat and with 1 easy seam along the back.
Would most definitely do it again, maybe incorporating short rows to mask the small holes from row/colour change
