This is one of those projects that I can't say much about yet as the recipient will probably come on here and read this blog before Christmas. There will be more details, but all I can say at the moment is that I'm using Debbie Bliss Donegal Luxary Tweed Aran in colourway 360029 and I'm following a free download pattern that I found on Ravelry.
Once I can reveal all I promise that I will link to the patter and provide a more detailed photograph that shows exactly what it is that I'm knitting. I'm loving the pattern though as there's a relatively simple repeat that gives a great finished effect. The yarn is 85% wool 15% angora and has quite a "manly" feel to it – if that makes sense! It knits up really well and I'm also loving the main body colour and the additional multicoloured flecks.
For now I'm going to have to leave you with justthese nuggets of information and crack on with the knitting, or else I won't be finished in time!
