Wet spun linen anyone?

I picked up this yarn when traveling a couple of years ago to Sitka, Alaska.

While it wasn't easy to knit with, the linen is hard on the fingers, I really like how it came out. I didn't at first like the pooling then it grew on me. When I was blocking it this past weekend my husband mentioned it looked like Tartan, I can work with that - in fact I really like it!

The pattern is from a shop we visited when we got back to the lower 48 in Washington. If you are a long term blog reader, it was the same trip we visited Debbie Macomber's shop A Good Yarn and actually ran into Debbie!
