That Beautiful purple tweed is too slender to ever get gauge on that pattern.
The yarn I have that will achieve gauge is stiff, itchy, and in a color I'm not enamored of. Which leads me to the question: why do I have this crappy yarn in my stash?
I think I may have inherited it from someone.
Why didn't I give it away when we moved?
I didn't know it was quite that itchy.
So I have a beautiful purple tweed yarn and no pattern for it, and a beautiful pattern and no suitable yarn.
Methinks I need to make a trip to the yarn store.
Maybe I'll cast on for a vest for myself out of a black tweed silk/wool blend I found in the stash (not enough for that sweater, darn it!) if I can find a vest pattern I like.
