To anyone out there who is under the mistaken impression that tweed yarns are itchy and frumpy--think again! Thursday afternoon Safari Knitting Group member, BARBARA BACHTELL, everyone's favorite grandma, has finally knitted something for herself for a change and it doesn't disappoint! With all the care and attention to detail that Barbara puts into the sweaters for her three pretty granddaughters, she has put into this extremely pretty lace cardigan knitted with ROWAN FELTED TWEED yarn. This yarn softens and fulls after handwashing and wearing like most other fine wools and the colorways are subtle and sophisticated. Looking for something a little more current? Check out the CENTRAL PARK HOODIE model, also knitted with ROWAN FELTED TWEED, on display now at Woolwinders, your neighborhood yarn shop! photo-172   photo-149
