I’m having a bit of a romance with Rowan this summer. I don’t know why but I am loving their yarn and their patterns and I cannot get enough. I’m planning to cast-on Juliet in cotton rope and I have an idea for a big cabled sweater for Katie out of holiday — both yarns have been discontinued. I’ve been hoarding a bunch of other Rowan yarns too. I’m blaming it on Anny when she made that gorgeous sweater for Julian at the end of last summer. You may remember she was kind enough to let me have her extra yarn and I made Tristan his own sweater for Christmas. As you can see I’ve added quite a few more tweedy skeins to my stash since then.
And today while eating lunch I was looking through a Rowan magazine from last year — number 42 — and seeing a ton of things I want to make, especially for my self-proclaimed Euro-trash wannabe husband. So I think I should just get a subscription. I know current subscribers get some benefit when they refer a new subscriber so I thought I’d see if anyone wants to refer me? In the meantime I think I’ll try to get my hands on a copy of The Rowan Story Book of Little Knits to see if I must have it — I think the answer is yes.
