Sublime Luxurious Aran Tweed

Posted on July 14 2015


Well hi there! I've been missing in action for quite sometime now. Popping up to do a random post here and there... Well I'm back! And four and a half months preggo. That first trimester knocked this Mamma down. No knitting, lots of Disney movies and lots of napping was happening. But I've regained my energy, or at least some, and I'm knitting like a fool. The shop is packed with awesome new fall yarns and I'm tasting as many as I can before Baby Flint #3 arrives. Starting with a yummy yarn called Luxurious Aran Tweed by Sublime yarns. I'm knitting on the color Fledgeling and SOOO yummy, so soft and all the colors are really nice, reminds me of traditional Irish cable knit sweaters. This project is a baby blanket but might need to make little baby a sweater to match! Luxurious Aran Tweed is 40% Wool/ 40% Cotton/ 20% Llama AND Machine Washable - yes please! You get 50g/109yds per ball and 4.5 sts = 1" on US 8. I'm using # 8 Dreamz (I can go on and on about how smooth, strong, pretty or how the join is absolutely fluid or the cable is not all kinky... But I won't 😉) I can't wait to share the blanket once I'm done and start a baby sweater to match! Happy knitting xx Ash
