It's almost time...

The +RowanYarns Pure Wool Worsted Mystery Afghan has absorbed all of my knitting time since it started, what, 9 weeks ago!  It can't be! Yes it can!!!

I have completed 42 blocks so far....I just have 6 of the last block to do....this one...isn't it just the prettiest block?

Do you have a favourite block? or one that you truly didn't like?  Did you stick with the patterns as written, or did you go off on your own? (I look forward to seeing all of the finished afghans at the end of July.)

6 of these please, Week 8 Ripple Cable

Once all of the blocks are knit up, in Week 9, this week, we were given the cable trim instructions....

lots of Cable Trim has to be knit

Last week, Ms. Post Person brought me these....the new "Denim & Chenille" collections from Rowan.  Say that fast, Denim & Chenille....sounds like a singing group doesn't it...

Denim, the Next Generation
and Chenille are back!

(click on the links to go to the KnitRowan web site and see all of the designs!)

We, the Rowan Ambassadors, got sample balls of the new Denim and Chenille yarns before receiving these booklets.  Unfortunately, I haven't had time to play with either...yet...because I've been busy knitting afghan squares!

Hubby has already requested this cardigan...the Leith Guernsey

Hubby has also requested this Flint Guernsey....with the man himself Martin Storey
modelling!  Shown here also is the Leith Guernsey women's version.
ALL of the designs in this collection are sized for men, women and children...

(I guess Hubby liked the cardigan I made him in Rowan's Fine Art Aran....
and he has decided to strike while the iron is hot!)

as I said, all of the designs are sized for Men, Women and Children....
well except this one, Pembroke....
only available as this oversized women's shrug cardigan

This design, Tilbury, is available as a FREE download to Row@n members right now!
Here's a quick link....Tilbury
Remember, you have to be a Row@n member, and be logged in!

Another thing you really must do....is "Subscribe" to the Rowan Yarns You Tube channel.  This weekend all of the new Autumn/Winter collections popped up....gorgeous shots....actually better than looking at them in the printed book....with closeups of stitches....seriously, I was too busy watching them to tell you about them.  Rowan has said that these might disappear at any time....because well, the official Autumn/Winter 2014/15 launch date isn't until July 15....so you had better go on over there and have a look....and Subscribe so that you are notified every time Rowan upload a video!

You could see ALL of the new designs, in the new yarns....like the "Brushed Fleece" collection by Martin Storey - this design is "Skomer"
I just checked, the videos are ALL there - Magazine 56, Brushed Fleece, Fazed Tweed, Rowan Finest,
Big Accessories, they are ALL there!  Hurry....before they disappear!

Now, I am off to the UK next weekend...Hubby will be holding the fort here while I'm gone...Lackie and Daisy will miss me....but sometimes you just HAVE to do things....like visit the Rowan Headquarters in Huddersfield, UK!  After that I'll be meeting up with a friend for a bit of catch up.

So, while I'm gone....

Happy Knitting!

  1. I was faithful to the patterns of all 8 blocks, except for removing two rows at the top of the last set of blocks so things would balance out. The trim, though….hum…. am waiting to assemble to afghan and will then decide what to do. I can see short rows in my immediate future...
