I guess I should mention this project, especially since it’s nearly done.
The pattern is Murcia, and I thought it would be a good way to use up the leftover Classic Elite Skye Tweed I had in my stash. I have a little over 400 yards of it, and wasn’t quite sure what else to do with that amount of aran-weight yarn. It probably wasn’t enough for a vest (not that I normally wear vests anyway), but far more than I’d need for a hat or mitts (or even both).
Ravelry’s advanced search to the rescue! The fabric seems a bit stiff right now, but I’m expecting it to soften up nicely after it’s had a bath.
