I Wanna Be Sedated

I may have put the matches away a tad early. Although the Summer Tweed appeared to be fine as I knit the individual pieces, the final product is looking like it would have benefited from some wool content. Ah well, I had the yarn in stash and I'm less than thrilled with the color as well so it'll be a good knocking around sweater. And give me the excuse to buy wool with which to knit another one!

Don't get me wrong. This will be a nice sweater. But, if I have a lesson learned to impart to y'all, it's that Rowan Summer Tweed works really well for the designs in the Summer Tweed booklet and not as well for anything else. The seaming will get you on Kepler. A yarn with some stretch would have made fitting the pieces together a snap.
