But. Friends. I'm facing my Rowanophobia! I decided that, for better or for worse, sweaters knit with DK or smaller yarn look better on me. And Rowan has some gorgeous non-colourwork patterns that are interesting and look wearable. Specifically, Ive dogeared several patterns in "The Best of Rowan" that I bought at Interweave's hurt book sale a year or two ago. And I"m doing the Short Raglan Sweater by Amanda Griffiths that's toward the back of the book.
With some caveats: I didn't do the 'doughnuts' that decorate the bottom of the sweater ,instead added some ribbing to match the sleeves. There are cables around the raglan that are really pretty. So far, so good.
The yarn is Cotton Fleece Dusty blue seconds that I bought a few weeks back, which seems to be working pretty well.
AND. This weekend is the Black Sheep Gathering. Yay! I plan to go over there Friday morning for shopping, and to see Jodie who is doing the Sheep to Shawl and Sheila and Michael Ernst and to pick up (hopefully) some glass circs for socks as a treat for myself. Cause honestly, I need No More Yarn.
Just a few. I have some video of him where you can see how gorgeous his fleece is! Calypso weighs 75 pounds and he is starting to get...
