Shazam: Right Front

For Fiber so chunky you gotta eat it with a FORK (ahem, hay fork that is), look no further than then SHAZAM!

I finished the Right Front last night – wooo – it needs serious blocking, but Oh Baby I love that Stitch Definition. I LOVE Cabling! (New Knitters: learn How to Cable HERE). These cables just JUMP off the body of this sweater! Comin’ to Getcha!~ (In a very friendly way, but of course!)

BUT…

Tweed Yarn is such a mystery to me. Magpie came in Plain or Tweeds and I’m using the Tweed offering – it is SO different. The Plain version is softer and loftier; Magpie Aran Tweed is dense, dry and less elastic.

WHY THEY DO THAT?

Spinners? Please educate Us? Please?

I did some judicious Googling and came up with: NADA!

I’m intrigued – how’s it made – why do they put those little flecks in there – why is it so much DRIER than the normal wool…
