silkroad overload

I'm so easily convinced I need more yarn. It seriously doesn't take much encouragement to make me indulge. Both Tania and Rachael are extraordinarily good at doing this to me.. not that I'm *really * complaining :P

I bought some Jo Sharp Silkroad DK Tweed last week, which I finally opened today. Yes! I know! It's been in it's packet untouched since it arrived last week! After knitting with the RYC Yorkshire Tweed and it feeling a little bit 'twiney' I hadn't really felt the need to fondle the JS tweed, but oh my! it is SO soft.. much more so than the Rowan. And today I left Tania's house with some more Jo Sharp yarn, this time Silkroad Aran and it too is just delicious. It has a gorgeous shine to it and it is so lovely to knit with, even swatching wasn't a chore! So I now have a dilemma - which of these 2 gorgeous yarns to knit with first... The DK destined for the Everyday Tweed, or the aran destined for Wicked. Decisions, decisions....
