So as if I don’t need anymore distraction from my daily practicing and knitting and chores and….
TWO knitting magazines arrived in the last two days!
First ROWAN – I flipped thru it – I must say its such a gorgeously produced seductive magazine that I start out wanting to make everything cause they all look so yummy – I mean the photo styling etc. Will check back after a closer read.
Rowan Knitting & Crochet Magazine No 41
Spring / Summer
This season we take you on a voyage of discovery that captures the romantic and nostalgic sides of the British summertime, in Secret Garden and Promenade, and adds a hint of Moroccan spice with the designs and location in Medinas and Minarets as we travel through the Soukhs and bazaars looking for inspiration. This season we have used different photographers for each of our stories to bring you three very different looks to explore. In Recreation Lisa Richardson and Rachel Henderson show us how to rejuvenate jumpers that have been languishing at the back of your wardrobe or turn that high street bargain into a one-off look. In Lazy Days Marie Wallin and Sarah Hatton have created homeware pieces such as a garden table runner and tea light holders that will add a highlight to outdoor living. Finally we revisit a very popular technique, short row shaping, essential to create the asymmetric and flared looks in designs such as the beautiful skirt, Wisteria.
All skill levels are catered for in the easy to read patterns and charts, and the regular features and articles provide plenty of reading material too.
