Here is the first of my Autumn Knits. I have finished it some time ago, but not have had the time to take pictures. But today I can show you the result.
I have already talked about this design. It is number 2 of my this seasons Top Ten.
It is knitted in Rowan Yarns Tweed. This yarn is a 100% wool yarn and traditionally spun. You may first be afraid of this yarn. It doesn’t look soft on the ball. And yes, it is not that smooth like all the merino yarns out there. BUT this yarn produces a soft, warm and cozy garment. It is like a cloud in your hands. The nature of the yarn is adding depth and structure to your garment and you can even feel this texture.
Ordie by Martin Storey uses 8 vibrant shades of Rowan Tweed to show a striped tartan pattern, which is knitted using fair-isle technique.
Happy knitting everybody.
