Perfectly describes this Classic Elite tweed yarn. It’s my rustic version of the Equestrian Blazer to be worn in the country walking muddy roads with my dog. Lately a knitted jacket is all I’ve needed with the warm weather this season. The yarn is knitting up nicely, structured but not stiff and the short rows give it a clean shape. I plan to start my Christmas knitting this weekend. I’d like to knit my dad a Shifting Sands scarf. Any yarn substitution suggestions -what’s your favorite sportweight yarn?
