Sadly, the Yorkshire Tweed in my last post is no longer destined for anything.
(Apologies for the crappy lighting–things are good and dark and stormy here in Boston.) I had hopes that it would work for Eunny’s Deep-V Argyle Vest, which I’ll be knitting for a friend later this year, but sadly not. The tweed obscures the argyle pattern, and the whole fabric is generally too heavy and scratchy. It might make a good yarn to crochet the steeks with, but for the main body it’s just too rough.
The other yarn is Debbie Bliss Pure
HeavenSilk, and it’s a definite winner.
When we have some natural light, I’ll have to capture the beautiful sheen of this yarn. It’s indescribably luscious. And it’s on its way to being the Leaf Lace Shawl from Fibertrends. There has also been small progress on the Fibonacci Hoodie and the socks, but pictures will have to wait for another day.
