Is Kristine converting you into a Rowanette?
A question asked in my comments the other day by Miz CurlsandPurls.
It may very well be true. When I was in Knit Happens Wednesday I spied a Rowan sample hanging up that I hadn’t seen before. This:
That is “Red Hot” from Rowan 33, and is knitted in Calmer. Good golly, Miss Molly! I’m in love!
This is a totally impractical sweater for me — I would never wear it to work, not with a neckline like that. But I must have it nonetheless.
I have a bag of Calmer in color “coffee bean” which is a rich dark brown. I may use that. I figure I could always wear the sweater with a black tank under it, right? That might actually look cute . . .
And I have a brown/black silk skirt that would look fab with it!
So there you have it. Call me a Rowanette.
Actually, I’ve loved Rowan for years and there are a few Rowan sweaters in my past. I strayed away from them in the past ten years or so when I became obsessed with traditional knits. But because I’m more interested in making things I’ll actually wear, I’m returning to Rowan.
What Have We Here?
Spongebob was quite excited when I brought this home.
This is Noro Gisha, a microfiber/cotton ribbon yarn. I’ve got two skeins of it here to knit a shop sample scarf for Knit Happens. I’ll have to break it to Spongebob very gently that it won’t be staying long . . .
Uh-oh. He heard that.
Ice Me, Baby!
I finished the back of Ice, and have a fair bit done on the first sleeve.
Meet Lucy, who recently went to live with my co-worker Monica.
Say it with me now: “Awwwwwwwwwwww!”
My Lucy acknowledges that Puppy Lucy is WAY cute. Even if she is a dog.
