I swatched the Cherry Tree Hill wool boucle (Oceania, in the colorway Quarry Hill). Nice, makes gauge, but I think the fabric is a bit on the limp side for this jacket. Sigh.... What do you think, gang, do I need a fabric more on the sturdy side for this jacket?
And my Handmaiden Ottawa yarn in the color Dragonfly came today! Lovely ... but somehow I thought this was 18 stitches to 4 inches, but it's 22 stitches to 4 inches. I blame the sale sticker. [Sorry, no pic of yarn, I'm wiped out tonight.]
So, now what? Must I set out again along the Grand Yarn Crawl to find a yarn worthy of this pattern? Or shall I sensibly choose Elann's wool/llama aran-weight, the name of which escapes me, in the rich Mulberry color?
Ah, if I only had a brain...
