Rowan Tweed

Since *I* need something to cheer myself up while waiting for things to turn up. A little antsy as things are supposed to start moving by today and still no news in a lot of fronts. Have an awful feeling it’s because everyone buggered off early for their summer holiday. Well, when the world is bringing me down there’s nothing like a good stash of yarn to keep me happy.

I think it would probably more economical in the long term to keep a fat sheep that I can dye different colours whenever I need something yarn like, but have a feeling that won’t do.

The first yarn is Rowan’s Tweed in an oatmeal colour, the first yarn I purchased in the UK.


Linen and Cotton Yarn - Petit Marche

Yarn number two is from Japan, a linen and cotton combo from Olympus, it’s actually a very light latte colour and looks downright edible. I fell in love with the cotton range Japan has, most of the yarn are made for their domestic market and other than Noro or Koigu, most are not readily available overseas.

WIP #19 Lacy Vest Vogue Knitting

Last is my WIP for the #19 Lacy Top from Vogue, have finished the neckline now and will need to block it, sew the shoulders (though I’m inclined to use a 3 needle bind off instead). Will have to put this away for a while until I have a flat surface for it unfortunately.

    You’re right about the Petit marche. It does look edible! Even the label is lovely. You’ve photographed it beautifully.
