The Model: The Incomparable Mr. Jefferies
The Pattern: Style Hounds Handknits "Hounds Tooth," Size Small
The Yarn: I could swear the yarn I bought with my kit is alpaca, but on the website it seems to only offer Merino, so maybe it's Merino. It is awfully warm and soft, and it is a three-strand yarn, almost like a ribbon yarn. I think it is alpaca, because it is less sproingy than Merino. I bought the kit at the New York Sheep & Wool Festival a few years back. Actually, I already had the charcoal grey yarn, leftover from a different kit I bought from Style Hounds even MORE years back. I just bought the blue-green yarn and the buttons to make this houndstooth sweater. I've still got lots left! Maybe another sweater in reverse colors to this one, or maybe some matching dog-walking mitts, are going to come out of it. I'm not sure yet.
I knit. Who knew?
