Ravelry notes (http://www.ravelry.com/projects/ArtLady/tweedy-aran-cardigan).

Here is a practice swatch that shows what the Fancy Rib looks like closeup (the hemline and collar and parts of the sweater, too) White shows it better than my rust tweed!

Your Cardigan is AMAZING. This is why I started knitting because I wanted to learn to make beautiful items like this. I'm a long way from this, but your finished sweater is really really beautiful. Great job!

I envy your ability to wear beautiful wools, but at least I found a cotton blend tweed I can try! Woo!

Well, once again I am just in awe of your work!!!!!! So jealous. Still have not gotten enough courage to try a sweater. Yours are always so beautiful. Maybe one day I will become as acomplished as you are.

As usual, you have created a really beautiful piece of art. Wearable art, which makes it even better!

I'm a foot taller than you, so I won't throw my BD out there. :cool:
