My Experience

Where I got it: I was given this tiny sample skein at TNNA.

Needles I used: Hiya Hiya sharps US 6/4 mm

Blocked Gauge I got: 19 sts/32 rows = 4"/10 cm

My Thoughts:  I really enjoyed knitting with this one. It's got a traditional tweed look, but also a cuddly feminine feel thanks to that mohair halo. It's pretty soft & smoother than some more classic wool tweeds & I really like the subtle shine from the rayon. 

What I might design with it: This would be great in a colorwork sweater. I'm thinking something Shetland-inspired.

Where you can get some: Try your LYS since a lot of places carry Berroco yarns.
