Yummy Tweed

Here is the newest addition to my yarn stash. I know, do I really need more yarn? The answer to that question is, Yes. Yes, I do!! This is the yummy Jo Sharp Silkroad DK Tweed I purchased from Little Knits. The colors are Paper Rose {pink}, Autumn {light brown}, and Festival {light purple}.

New Tweed Yarn - - Oh, My!!

For all you tweed yarn lovers out there, guess what? There's a new tweed yarn coming to town! I just got my new Knit Picks April 2009 catalog in the mail and on the inside back cover was a wonderful surprise!

City Tweed is the new yarn that will be available late this month. Here is how it is described: "This yarn begins with alpaca and Merino fibers dyed two different colors and then blended together to make a subtly rich, lustrous heather. We chose neutral colored Donegal tweed nebs to incorporate into the 2-ply yarn. The high ratio of nebs give City Tweed a traditional appeal. The use of Merino and alpaca makes if soft and warm."

It says the DK weight will start at $3.99/50 gram ball and HW weight starting at $7.99/100 gram ball.

From the photo of the inside back cover, I am so excited about this yarn! :) I love tweed yarn but it can be expensive. This yarn reminds me of the look of the Rowan Felted Tweed. I can't wait to order some of this little bit of tweed heaven!
