I had heard rumours about the imminent demise of Rowan's 4 ply Soft, Scottish Tweed Aran, and Scottish Tweed Chunky. These are all in the John Lewis clearance sale that is running at the moment, and that is usually a very big hint indeed.
I really didn't want this to be true. The Scottish Tweed is such lovely stuff - and 4 ply Soft is one of my favourites, too.
But now we know, because someone has asked Rowan and been given a definitive answer - have a look here, on Jannette's blog.
This would explain why I have been waiting soooo long for the Scottish Tweed Aran for my Kaffe Fassett Lantern Cardigan.
Curses. And other words expressing extreme annoyance.
The only thing that cheers me up about this, is that there must be something good lined up as a replacement. I wonder what it is?
By the way, I've nearly finished the second sleeve of the Striped Sweater. It looks exactly the same as the first sleeve, not surprisingly. I am still worried that I'm going to run out of the mid-grey colour......
