Felted Tweed Owns My Soul (or at least my wallet)

So yeah, I bought more yarn. Its 10 balls of Rowan Felted Tweed in the Pine colorway. The Knitting Bee’s shipment had luckily come in today and the boxes weren’t even open because they only ordered one bag of that color. I tried to photograph the yummy greenness that is this yarn; but the clouds in Oregon hate me.

So instead of being productive and doing something like say, the laundry I re-cast on for the Mrs Darcy cardigan. (I say re-cast on because this sweater was originally going to be knit out of some Felted tweed from the stash, but the yarn gods did not look kindly on the on hand yardage.) I have been adjusting the pattern for the new DK gauge and it has been going nicely. No pictures just yet because 7 inches of 1×1 ribbing isn’t that exciting.

BTW the donut is for my friend who recently ran off to college on the east coast. He complains of lack of baked goods, despite the nice buffet. His girlfriend (and one of my good friends) and I are sending a care package from back home full of inside joke goodies, so the donut will be making the trans-continental voyage in the next week or so.
