absolutely, my favourite fibre.
I admit to a small incident of “falling off the wagon”.
I am supposed to be working on my lovely Autumnal Cardigan…
it’s coming along beautifully. Only an inch to go before I separate the body at the armholes. I’m loving it. I can already tell that I will wear this a lot. More about it soon.
However, I didn’t have anything 100% wool on the needles for ‘instant gratification’ knitting. My wrists were complaining (cotton knitting is hard on the wrists). My patience was complaining (my Autumnal is knitted on 3.75mm needles (US5). It’s not fast knitting). And I’ve fallen in love…
It’s called Benbecula, from Rowan. I’ve been drooling over it for over a week, especially as I also realised I had the perfect yarn for it sitting in my collection. The fact that it’s a worsted weight (equals fast knitting) and it’s in wrist-friendly, 100% wool was more than enough to make me finally gave in today.
This is Naturally’s Aran Tweed. 100% wool.
I’m 100% happy.
