|Natually's Aran Tweed|
|Rowan's Felted Tweed Aran|
Janie H. sent me home with a big bag filled with enough of each to make a jacket. Now I'm swatching and deciding. I've knitted both swatches on a 4.5 mm needle, which creates a slightly dense fabric. Both swatches have been wet blocked and are drying in the warm afternoon sun (indoors, since I don't trust our squirrels). Neither swatch works out to the 5 sts per inch of my original version of Chocolat, but I love them enough that I'll deal with that. I might even decide to write up the pattern for an aran weight yarn; that decision awaits.
Hope your day is as perfect as ours.
