More from Rowan Magazine #54

I wanted some really pretty pictures today and the best place to go is the Rowan website. The photography for their magazines is always amazing.

Here are some more garments from Magazine #54. Only a couple more weeks until it arrives.
Lots of colour which is great to see. Reminds me of Rowan from 25 years ago.
This sweater was designed by Josh Bennett.
2013 is the perfect season for Rowan as knitwear sits centre stage of the fashion world creating the drama for the season head. Many of the catwalk designers have drawn inspiration for their collections from historic references such as the Baroque. Fashion is also looking to the handicraft textiles of Eastern Europe  and the nomadic lifestyle.
The Rowan designers have taken these strong trends and worked the different key looks into three distinctive stories:
Romancing - A beautiful collection of romantic lace and patterned knits photographed in the historic setting of Haddon Hall, Derbyshire
Folk - The patterned folk textiles of nomadic eastern cultures inspires this colourful collection of women's and men's knits
Essentials - A collection of the key shapes and textures on trend, designed into simple, easy to wear styles that compliment the season's essential looks    
 


I started Aileen last night. By the time I go home tonight the ribbing could be done.

The colour is Whiskey Barrel. I love it!

I'm knitting with two balls at once. Two rows of the first then two rows of the second. The yarn is carried up the side and will be hidden when I pick up for the front edge. I always suggest alternating two balls when knitting with hand dyed yarns. Even when the skeins are dyed side by side there can be a colour variation.

A reminder to everyone-Homeland Season 2 starts Sunday evening in Canada. I believe 8 or 9pm on Super Channel. We don't have that channel yet-that is Beth's job for tomorrow. Very exciting. We have been waiting patiently to see the next season.

It's a big TV evening so I should make it to the side shaping tonight. Who is going home on Big Brother??
