Valentine's Tweed

Remember the tweed that induced a "yarn high" on my knitting field trip with the Degenerate Knitters? Well, you all know that I'm anti-stash, so I better knit it up quickly before the cold weather leaves us!

Tweed for Demi Sweater!

I'm swatching it up to become the remarkable, Demi, by Kim Hargreaves. The first sweater I knit was the Tyrolean from the same book, Vintage Knits. I love my Tyrolean, but it's a bit short for my liking, and somewhat boxy. I will attempt to make my Demi longer and a bit more fitted, similar to Elliphantom's.

I just have a little more tweaking on my gauge, and I can start. I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day, filled with cookies, cupcakes, and possibly some glorious tweed!

Tweed!

oh! oh! oh! I love that sweater!!! I can't wait to see how it turns out- perhaps it will inspire me to start my own.
