I do not even like tweed. But ArtLady can get me excited about anything Unfortunately I don't think any of those colors would look good against my complexion. Maybe the snowshoe?

I think that Twist Cardigan is very nice. The only thing I never really liked about the Central Park Hoodie is that there is no closure.

If that is YOU in the photo, you would look fantastic in the LEMON CURD, a warm orange-yellow! It will be all the rage this coming Fall!

Most CPH's were buttoned. The knitters just figured out for themselves where they wanted to put their buttonholes.

I installed zippers in my two CPH'S. I wouldn't want my CPH to be open to the wind, either!

The 'open look' was cute, but not useful.

Those look fabulous, artlady! I must find a way to drive across the border and buy yarn. When I order it online, I pay triple for it, cuz of shipping, taxes, the dollar exchange and 'border-crossing fee'. I made the mistake of ordering $50 worth a few months ago, and paid $156. Shocked, I was.

Debbie Bliss's tweed wool is spun at Kilcar, co Donegal. They also spin their own range of wool which is much cheaper. You can get it here in big hanks, or in balls. Their website doesn't show the full range though

Very nice stuff! I love this yellow!


So hard to find good 'adult' yellows!
Oh, sooo tempting. But, I don't understand the pricing.
Or if we can even order from far away. If they ship to USA at reasonable pricing, I mean. Oh, this is soooo my yellow!

I figured it out: a pack of 20 balls is $71.04 US with $17.75 shipping. The balls are 50g, but a yardage equivalent was not stated.

50g is 80 metres, which is 87 yards, and the post is 28 Euros post, or 68 Euro "Interlink" which is I think an independent courier company
so of you bought a pack of twenty 50g balls (1740 yards) and went for the cheapest postage option it would be 82 Euros, and that is around $107 at the minute. Now I think that's expensive!
Over here some shops also sell it in 200g hanks which are cheaper, and I think that there is someone on Ebay who sells them to the US
( I think karlefr and Ceol-Deas are two ebay sellers who have it).
Kerry Woollen mills also do their own wool, but it's not tweed, it's 3 ply aran and it's E6.28per 200g hank

I ordered some of the white with black specks. Don't ask me why--I'm totally and completely insane. I'll let you know if I like it, though. Now I'll have tweed in gray, green, blue, tan, purple, white. . . .
