Rowan - sigh....Warning - photo intense!
|After some GPS twists and turns - |
one which took us down a tiny lane and our huge bus had to back up.....
we arrived......Rowan - be still my heart.
|Sharon Brant came down to say hello to Carolyn.....|
(L-R - Carolyn, Sharon, moi and Candice)
|Here's Terry in her "Shetland Woman" Jacket|
from Rowan Magazine 46 (designed my Marie Wallin)
Terry chose to change the
shade used for the ribbing and it looks lovely!
|Marie Wallin told us about the process of putting together|
a Rowan Magazine - from design submission,
photo shoot, pattern writing thru proofing.
Marie handles all of this for the Rowan publications.
|We got a first-hand look at the new variegated Kidsilk Haze - Carolyn|
and I both picked up a ball at the "Up Country" yarn shop in Holmfirth.
|There was knitting inspiration all around - ideas for your home....|
|I had a good look at this cardigan - as I think it|
might be a project for this winter.
This is "Kind" from Rowan Magazine 50
designed by Marie Wallin in Lima
(I have a small stash of Lima looking for a project!)
|There was a wall of Rowan Fabrics|
|and they had been used throughout the room.|
|There was a back door from the workshop room - you could step out for a breath of fresh air....|
|and take in the view!|
