oh thanks you guys! it was so nice to read your lovely comments!
Very nice, what is the lighter yarn? I love the tweedy look of it
unfortunately, this is not a yarn that is very readily available. it's called kaiapoi glen mist, i picked it up at an op shop (thats southern hemisphere for thrift store) in a small town in new zealand. i think it was produced in the sixties, or maybe earlier. the package has cute instructions on it like, wash both parts of the twinset together, and please wash with lux flakes.
i will definitely post a pattern once i finish wrestling with this pirate essay so look back here in a week or so!
