My Tweedy Triangle
I just finished blocking this last night. I'm sure most of you know this item, here are the stats:
The Shetland Triangle by Evelyn A. Clark from Wrap Style
Yarn: Rowan Felted Tweed in Dragon #147 (a little over two balls of yarn)
Needles: Knit Picks Options circular US 7- 36"
Modifications: I followed the pattern exactly, only adding a repeat and leaving out the last few rows that would result in the pointy ends (not a fan of the dramatic points).
I love how this turned out, I can say that this will be a favorite for years to come. I love the tweed, it's a nice grey/green with some flecks of white and blue in it. I'm hooked on tweed, makes me want to wrap it around my neck and hop a flight to Dublin. It turned out much more delicate than I thought it would, very light weight. I gave it a really tight blocking, something I didn't do with the Shetland Triangle I made out of the aran weight silk/merino yarn I used previously. I may reblock it again.
About the Knit Picks Options needles, they have changed knitting for me, hands down. I want to buy the whole set and the DPN's. (Hint hint, June birthday coming up, you know who you are) The finish IS like glass and the cord is so soft, it wasn't at all twisted or looped. You can use the needles as either circular or straight with the attachments that come with the cables. Now what to do with all my bamboo needles.
