two yarns, held together. A brown tweedy yarn - ball bands gone. I had knit this into something (I've forgotten what), and ripped it out, and found the re-wound balls in the depths when I was looking for something else. Some of the tweedy flecks were blue, and right beside it (serendipity??) was a number of balls of Peru - an Austermann yarn - 85% alpaca, 15% merino, in just the right shade of blue to match the flecks. The pattern calls for worsted,and each of these were fingering, so held together, they seem to work. I love the colours together, the yarns are well matched - the alpaca softens up the tweed, and I love the pattern.
What pattern, you ask? Ah, you'll have to wait for the finished piece later this week. (getting two blog posts out of a single pattern is a bonus!) I've fallen in love with this pattern, and couldn't be happier that I bought it.
