Today was a lazy day filled with a lot of knitting. My Nightshift is growing. Big problem. My last colour isn’t showing up. The background is still from the purple skein and the contrast is teal. I should have taken from the other end of the teal ball. I need to unknit (rip out sounds very harsh) the last 8 rows. It’s too late to do it now - it’s a tomorrow problem.

A much smaller problem - I wasn’t sure what to blog about today. I went to the Rowan website and started looking at patterns. Fabulous garments and pretty pictures - a great match. You can purchase the individual patterns to these on Rowan’s website.

This is Maple by Marie Wallin knit in Rowan Felted Tweed.

Knit this ladies intarsia and fairisle cardigan, a design from the Rowan archive that is now available to purchase online. A design by Marie Wallin using our wonderfully tweedy yarn Felted Tweed DK (wool, alpaca and viscose) this simply shaped, round neck cardigan has a stripe sequence on the sleeves, ribbing and bands.
Knit this women’s ribbed style bat wing sweater from the Simple Shapes Kidsilk Haze Collection, a design by Marie Wallin using the gorgeous yarn Kidsilk Haze (mohair and silk). The all over delicate cable style pattern gives a rib appearance, with a relaxed fit, round neck and slit detail in the centre front hem.

This is called Feverfew. 

A open lace stitch is used to create this sweater's unique breezy fabric. With exaggerated side panels, puffed sleeves and vents at the hips this striking sweater is designed by Lisa Richardson. Featuring a boat neck, this garment is worked in the deliciously cool Creative Linen, and is the perfect Summer cover-up.

Purchase the pattern for Chard.

This stylish cardigan features an all over cable pattern and shawl collar. It was designed by Martin Storey and knitted in our popular Softyak DK yarn, a lovely blend of 76% cotton, 15% yak and 9% nylon.

Knit this women's lace panel relaxed fit top from the Simple Shapes Kidsilk Haze Collection, a design by Marie Wallin using the stunning yarn Kidsilk Haze (mohair and silk). The top half of the garment is in stocking stitch with the bottom half worked in a beautiful lace pattern, with wide round neck and short sleeves.

Rowan has redesigned their website and it isn’t complete. Not all the patterns shown on their website are available for purchase yet. I made sure that you can purchase and download the patterns that I have shown.

It’s bed time. If I don’t go soon I’m going to unknit and then it will be a late evening.
