Who loves tweed???

I do I do I do!!! Rowan Felted tweed. It is a lovely yarn to work with, and an easy pattern. I am experimenting a bit with shaping adding additional mini cables in the next few rows. I also added a ribbing. I want it to be a bit longer.

I love all of Rowan's tweeds. In fact they featured highly in the Chinese Rose Coat. When you started this project I wasn't sure how the cables would work in the felted tweed - but they look great!

I just finished a couple of Summer Tweed projects (first time I used it) - lovely stuff.

I love the felted tweed to, particularly for colour work, as its texture holds all the colours together really well.

Your sweater is looking great so far!

Tweed is great and that Rowan yarn is sure nice to knit with. Glad you are experimenting..! Looks very intresting. Anyway, I have finished the Hydrangea socks you gave me. They were a great knit. Again, thank you so much... Im so happy with them. Hugs from your friend!

Yes, tweeds are very appealing to the eye. Tweeds and cables is always a great combo!
