S.E.X.--Stash Enrichment Expedition


This sweater is for Miss Buttermilk and is being knit out of one of my faves--Debbie Bliss Aran Tweed. Being half brit (the other half is hillbilly -- we don't advertise that one nearly as much), I have a preternatural fondess for tweed, the scratchier the better. If it looks like wearing it would produce the equivalent unpleasant sensations of that of a medieval hairshirt, I am so there. This led me to Kathy's Kreations in Ligonier, Pa. Here I was able to round out my stash of tweedy yarns, so that if I knit non-stop around the clock from now until Dec. 24th, taking breaks to ovulate and work on my OTHER project--ahem--, making Christmas sweaters for all my peeps should be a cinch!

What about using a natural fleece?

You could keep the rough British/Hillbilly rebel in a turtleneck look, with a soft cozy feel...

Nice sweater-in-progress! I like that tweedy look too. Can't wait to see it finished!

Hi! I love the tweedy stuff. I have an impossible list, too, for Christmas.

Thanks for stopping by my place!
