Rowan on My Mind

I've made the plunge. I have subscribed to Rowan International and will receive their two (2) magnificent magazines during the year. I shouldn't call this a magazine as it's really a heavy and thick pattern book. Would make a great cocktail table centerpiece. As a subscriber, I will receive a free gift of two scarf patterns plus 6 balls of Pure Wool 4-ply. I was told the yarn color is blue/green or teal, but they may run out as they are behind in sending out the gifts. I told Jessica that any color will be fine with me. Remember, you are talking to a yarnaholic.

Here's the first issue I expect to receive in the mail shortly:

Rowan Magazine #46 (Rowan International)

This will be an exciting issue for me as they have a few men's wear patterns. I hope to knit a nice sweater for my darling hubby (DH). Now when I started to knit last year, DH didn't want me to knit anything for him. Well, he received an alpaca scarf from me because that's all I knew what to knit back then. I figure I would surprise him with a sweater. It won't be a Christmas gift, because I don't need that kind of pressure right now. Hopefully, I'll be able to knit a sweater for him before the Winter is over. I know, Winter hasn't even started. But I can plan ahead.

In order to get this Rowan subscription, I decided not to renew my Threads and Sew News subscriptions. I have way too many sewing mags and now need to work on my knitting library.

Sounds like a good choice! And what an awesome subscriber present to get!
I like your new blog wallpaper too :)

I am so excited for you!!! Last night I commented to my husband that I had no desire to knit socks and he gave me this puppy dog look. I guess I will have to learn so that I can knit him some.
