Felted Tweed

There hasn't been much knitting the past few days. Last night I had a 9pm conference call and was on the phone until 10:30. I'm hoping tonight there will be some time to sit and knit. It's definitely knitting weather. I don't mind the cooler weather but I think that the rain can stop now. Most of my shoes aren't meant for walking in the rain.

Rowan Felted Tweed. One of Rowan's all time best selling yarns.

Felted* Tweed DK is a wonderful, tweedy yarn with a felted look, is a beautiful blend of merino wool, alpaca and viscose. The rustic colour palette makes this yarn perfect for fairisles, striping and other colour work. A firm favourite with our designers.*Please note, this is a lightly pre-felted yarn that knits to a lightweight fabric with a felted effect. Please follow care instructions, as the yarn may felt further if washed incorrectly

Just as I was about to hit publish an email came from the Rowan distributor. There will be new patterns coming 

Premiering this fall is a new series of Rowan publications titled Rowan Loves. This series will provide new pattern support for some of Rowan's long time best-selling yarns.
The first edition, available in November for North American Rowan stores, features two top-selling yarns - Kidsilk Haze and Felted Tweed. Designed by Sarah Hatton, there are 16 projects in all.
There is a variation of each pattern in Kidsilk Haze and Felted Tweed.

This is going to be an awesome book. I'll be ordering lots of them tomorrow. Is it almost November?

Thanks for bringing Mist back to the land of the living. It is timeless and just what I was looking for. The final two photos on this post are pretty wonderful, too. Like this new blog focus.
