Here's a pic of a texture I'm playing with. This is from recycled yarn from a thrift shop lambswool sweater. It's really kind of a loden green, with a heathered grey cast to it. The yarn has a rustic fuzziness to it that obscures the texture. I can't decide if I should move on to the rest of the garment or go back to the drawing board. This is for a men's sweatervest I'm envisioning with traditional leather buttons. Kind of like a comfort garment with a bit of a modern update. Anyhow, I'm thinking that the texture will work, but needs a smoother yarn and that this yarn needs to get a more pronounced texture to make it look interesting. Scott likes it because it's subtle, but I wonder if it is so subtle that it's pointless? Feedback?
