Thank you for the accolades on finishing Harmony. She was worth the slog, but it will be some time before I want to knit another garter stitch sweater or any sweater with Summer Tweed. The minute Harmony was finished, the same minute the last button was sewn into place, the very same minute Harmony was set aside, I cast on for sweater #7, Tempest. I could not wait to have another sweater on the needles, a sweater that would replace the slog with a happy process, a sweet process, an easy going, easy to handle, charming sweater.
Tempest has been a dear and has not (as yet) lived up to her name. While her colors may evoke a dark and stormy night, she has stayed calm and easy going and, for that, I am relieved. Araucania Ranco has proven to be a very nice yarn. The knit fabric is soft, looks great whether knit in socks or lace, and comes in a wide variety of colors, both semi-solid and multi-color. Some time ago, with Tempest in mind, I purchased black (with hints of deep blue) as the main color and the contrasting skeins of gray tones.
