Warm. Easy on the eye. Strong yet soft at the same time.
Oh, and the beanie ain't half bad, either. Ha!
This was meant to be an intricate yet still manly cabled beanie for Galumph, but once I started doing the ribbing, I realised that the cable detail would get completely lost in the tweediness of the yarn. So I did some mods, and made a simple stocking stitch beanie instead.
Although I was rather looking forward to doing all the fancy cable work, I really like the simple gorgeousness of the tweed. It reminds me of clouds on a stormy day - full of blues and greys and blacks and greens.
I'm kinda hankering after some tweedy goodness for myself, now!
