Comments: This is an itty-bitty swatch, because working tweed in 4-ply yarn is a real pain in the butt time suck.  :)  Its a pretty pattern though - I'm such a sucker for tweed, whether its in yarn form, or stitch pattern form!  By the way, I've used both of these Elann yarns for baby wear, and I have to say that I prefer the Baby Silk - its much softer than the Baby Cashmere, and seems to have less of a halo to it, despite having a higher alpaca content.  Maybe it has to do with processing?
