Last month we received this beautiful Kathmandu Tweed Chunky in really yummy colors, which many of you chose for your Einstein Coat. This yarn has an appealing tweedy look, but the addition of silk gives it a smooth, soft hand. I was wondering what I could knit with it when the brand new Queensland Collection from Jenny Watson arrived. I love almost every single garment in this book - so does Ginni. I was particularly excited about the waistcoat pattern.
It reminds me of the very popular circular shrug we did last fall, but this one is much improved in terms of fit and sizing. So yesterday I stopped by and picked up a few skeins of the chocolate and caramel chunky tweed.
I know, you're all admonishing me for starting something new when I haven't finished my Fusion, but I'm at the point on Fusion that I have to decrease for the armholes and the neckline. We were going to the Blue Crabs game last night, and I just wanted something simple I could work on without looking or thinking. So, I cast on in the car on the way up, and by the time the game was over, I had knit quite a bit - up to the armholes in fact.
It's only 52 rows, and you know that once you get those extra stitches bound off, the back section just flies. This yarn has such great body and is so lovely to knit. Can't wait to wear it.
