Some of the yarn sitting and taunting me

Rowan Cork

I got the Zoe Mellor ‘Adorable Knits for Tiny Tots’ for Christmas last year and have been dying to knit it for my youngest.  However the Rowan Cork yarn has been discontinued.  I managed to pull a few balls of it together from Ebay but not enough for the pattern – I think I might try it without the hood, should just about scrape by.  (However will probably have to wait until next winter as we are nearly in Feburary!)

I got 10 skeins of Berroco’s Memoirs yarn from Elann a few months ago.  It feels so nice I’ve been trying to figure out what to knit with it.  I think that I’d like to do something with some lace work,  the subtle colours would work best with that I think.

Rowan Tapestry

Another lovely yarn that I’ve got stashed here in the office is the Rowan Tapestry in Pot Pouri.  I love the colours and the feel of the yarn and I’m trying to figure out what to use it for to do it justice.  I guess that’s the problem with having such special yarn, you find yourself almost afraid to use it as the end product needs to be a beautiful as the yarn.

  1. Ah hah! Actually I have that very book and I also have some Rowan Cork (in pink sadly, so not to your purposes
    probably)and I was wondering what to use it for. I also have a girl about the right age, so I can only doff my har at ye and thank you sincerely for the tip.

    I can however, as thanks, suggest (at the risk of blowing my own trumpet) my Ms Potter Mittens for the Rowan Tapestry
    Pot Pourri. http://nicknits.blogspot.com/2007/10/wow.html

    That very yarn is used for the pattern on the cover and I have to say, the yarn is great for these mittens. There are some significant errata in the pattern (mea cupla!) so if you’re interested please get in touch 1st.

  2. are you on ravelry? it is a great resource for patterns. There is a great feature…just type in the yarn, and it will list all the projects knitted with that particular yarn…good luck
