it's an alpaca merino blend with a bit of sheen, lovely hand, and heathered look. i've swatched for honeycomb by sarah castor. i don't own any knit vests so i think it's time i make myself one.
why, what's this? oh, yeah. (rav link)
so now, i need your help. i'm about to embark on the knitting project of a lifetime:
b's family gave me alice starmore's the celtic collection for christmas and i am in love with this sweater. and the horse, but that's beside the point. anyway, with all the cables, it's going to be a yarn-eater so i'm looking at knitpick's telemark. but what color? i'd like this to be something that'll match with almost any pair of pants. if i'm going to put that much work into a sweater, i'm going to wear it. a lot. charcoal heather? grey wolf? lichen? what do you think?
(and not to be remiss - many thanks to boxwish and i09 for the mentions!)
