Luxury Tweed

Can I just say ... it's a good day when two packages full of yarn arrive at once!

Rowan Silky Tweed, from South Seas Knitting, courtesy of a gift voucher from a bunch of lovely friends, which they gave me after my hip surgery, and I'm finally well enough to enjoy. Destined to be a jumper or cardigan, pattern not decided yet!

And Bendigo Luxury (8 ply) for the crossword-trimmed jumper I've been designing in my head for over a year now. Yum.

That's my winter knitting sorted for the year!

  9. Don't forget that Luxury grows like billy-o when it gets wet. You may not want much ease.
