So let's talk about Felted Tweed. Isn't it terrific? Don't we all just love it? Rowan has also come out with Felted Tweed Aran and Chunky, but let's all hold our breath until they introduce FT 4-Ply. After all, they took away Yorkshire Tweed 4-Ply so they owe us. (Well sure, we all did stash up when we heard it was discontinued, but we still like to buy more yarn.) FT is one of the nicest tweeds made, and the colors are beautiful.
Salina is knit from 6 skeins of colorway Maritime. The pattern is a Kim Hargreaves design from the great Vintage Style and is my 5th pattern knit from this classic book. (My favorite might be Joy.) I love this pretty pullover, 50's style and so easy to wear. Raveled.
I now have a new stash of FTDK. A friend gifted me a skein of Tangerine (thank you!), which meant I had to buy 5 more so I could finally make the Tangled Yoke Cardigan! One of these days.
Yesterday Misty arrived and I immediately cast on for Arielle in a pretty pale blue Rowan 4-Ply Cotton. First summer knit of 2010.
I just love to knit.
