This morning I ordered Rowan for fall. I really like the patterns. Very Rowanish. If you have some of the early magazines then you will understand what I am saying. Lots of fair isle. Lots of tweed. Great use of colour. Felted Tweed was used in lots of garments. That is a very good thing. The yarn is great to knit with and even better to wear. There are new yarns for fall and new colours in the existing yarns. I wish I could show pictures and tell you more but for now this it. As soon as I get the go ahead I will post more. I will say that I am excited about Rowan magazine 52 and the mini magazines coming.
Any day Mr. UPS should be bringing a box with new colours of Rowan Kidsilk Creation Stripe. You can make a scarf in under an hour.
A net, tubular construction made from the best selling yarn Kidsilk Haze which is 70% super kid silk Mohair and 30% silk

Still no knitting to report. Last night Melo got the bandage off his head again. I was afraid he was going to rub his ear on the carpet and get it bleeding so he sat with me and I rubbed his head. He was very happy. Tomorrow they are doing surgery to get everything cleared up.
Beth and I (okay, my dad) decided that it was time to paint our house. We moved in 5 years ago and it is time to get rid of the builders beige walls. I have gone through 100 pages on www.design-seeds.com to get some colour ideas. Right now I am thinking about my bedroom. My bedding is purple. Shocking. Do I want purple walls? Maybe dark teal. Works great with purple. Maybe a dark grey. These are just a few of the many combinations that I like. Take some time and look at the great combinations that they are showing.
