      I still have the orange kathmandu tweed dk that you enabled me to buy b/c I keep going back and forth on what to make with it. I was thinking Salina, but I've heard that it is thick for a dk so I was maybe thinking of a Garter Yoke Cardigan....or I could modify Salina or I could make Celtic or a raglan.....
      see my problem

      It is so soft though; yours will be super comfy.
      I'm using my green aran weight for a Cardigan for Arwen right now.

      Wow this is a long comment, maybe I just should have emailed you ;)

      Thanks!
      It's really more the case of having many projects going at once and I'm finishing them all at once!
      It's so soft that I'm hoping to live in this one. I'm in love with the yarn but there are some things that it isn't: DK weight for one thing. With 6s (4.0 mm), I made a gauge of 5.25 sts/in but I used a sweater I made with this stuff last year as my swatch (also on 6s) because this GROWS. No joke. On the old sweater, I got 4.89 sts/in! I knit this with a 4.89 sts/in gauge and 1.5" negative bust ease so when it grows, it'll be cool.

      I would definitely make another sweater with it. It's probably best suited for cables but I had a hard time resisting plain stockinette, as you can tell! Now I just have to figure out what to do with the remaining 5 balls! Eep!

      Such the great fit. And the tweedy yarn. Perfect.
