Silky Wool for the Tangled Yoke

I was going to be good. I was going to use stash yarn for the Tangled Yoke cardigan. But I knit up a swatch and it's difficult to get the right gauge with this yarn without forfeiting drape -- it just felt too rigid. There was nothing for it but to go yarn shopping! I did and I found this:

I think it's going to scream 'holiday sweater'! I love it.

PS - ignore the nobbly bit on the swatch. I was dog tired last night but was determined to knit this up before I crashed. It is only the swatch after all... I'll be sure the real deal is knit whilst I'm at least half awake!
