Oh, Snap!

Have you seen the new Rowan magazine? No. 42. This page
has some of the new stuff. So does this one . I also like the new shapes with big yarn. The new yarns are okay- a bit problematic. They have cacoon which is mohair/merino blend, a cashmere silk blend that costs the earth, and the merino tweed is lovely. It's nice to see improvement in Martin Storey's new work but Marie Wallin, Rowan's lead designer is conservative.

Can't wait for their new books though.

What new patterns are you hoping to knit in fall?

Fall knitting is tough, because southern California is still really warm until late November (at least during the day; it does get chilly at night). I think I'll work on a short-sleeved sweater, and then a Wenlan Chia hooded sweater for the cool evenings.
