Rowan felted tweed

I have been continuing to shop from stash and trying unsuccessfully not to buy or download any more patterns. As I write this I have an Emoji vest top in red and blue, the addition by subtraction shawl and the Mayhem shawl part of the Shawl Society III on the needles. I also had Vellum from This Thing of Paper on the needles. I had carefully chosen my colours, looked at my wardrobe seen what colour I needed, kitted up and cast on. I had chosen from my Felted Tweed stash. I cast on and would normally be full throttle on the rib but it just didn’t seem to get going. It was on my third row when I realised, it was the yarn. I didn’t like knitting with it. As I have 6 boxes of Rowan felted tweed destined for a variety of colour work projects, I wasn’t very happy. I have knitted with it before with other yarns in smaller projects so I didn’t notice it too much. Knitting with it this time I found the yarn rough and it made my hands dry. The felted tweed chunky and Aran I have knitted many an item with and love them both so whilst feeling slightly perplexed I have come to the tough decision that I am going to sell all my Felted Tweed DK. I am using two balls on another project but as it’s not every row I am persevering
