40 years

I love Rowan Felted Tweed. These designs are from the new book New Vintage DK. Somehow it was missed in our last order but we should be receiving it by the end of the month. Can't wait? You can purchase the patterns on Ravelry.
New Vintage DK is a collection of 14 designs inspired by classic cables, geometric pattern and lace work. Designed by Lisa Richardson, Martin Storey, Sarah Hatton, Vibe Ulrik, Georgia Farrell and Quail Studio
Basilica (above) is knit with 6 colours.

Knit this women's cardigan from New Vintage, a design by Lisa Richardson using our beautiful tweed effect yarn (wool, alpaca and viscose.) With an all over textured pattern, v neck and pockets, this pattern is suitable for the intermediate knitter.

Felted Tweed is a beautiful blend of 50% merino wool, 25% alpaca and 25% viscose.  The yarn has a beautiful tweed effect, perfect for fairisles, striping and other colour work and is the obvious choice for winter projects. The rustic colour palette makes this yarn a firm favourite, with shades ranging from cool, watery tones, to warming cherry red and fiery ginger. 
*Please note, this is a lightly pre-felted yarn. Please follow care instructions, as the yarn may felt further if washed incorrectly.
It hasn't arrived yet but it's coming. The book will sell for $37.95.
40 years and 40 magazine covers - which is your favorite?! 
This beautiful hard cover book takes a look back at some of our most-loved designs from Rowan. 
From the introduction by Marie Wallin: "I hope you will enjoy this book, and as it takes you on a journey through these four glorious decades of spectacular knitwear design, I hope you will fall in love with Rowan all over again."
Here is a preview of some of the patterns that will be in the book. There will be 20 patterns that have been knit in new yarns and refreshed colour palettes.

This will be appearing in the next Rowan newsletter. We're very excited to part of Rowan's 40th Celebration.

Part of the celebration is Rowan Anniversary Mugs. These are on order but I don't know when they will be arriving. Reserve yours now. They will sell for $16.50.

Now it's time for a bit of knitting. I have a few projects to get finished for The Knitters' Fair and Knitting Camp.
