Kay, my Rowan rep came today. She was not on an official visit but came to say goodbye as Rowan have re-organized the sales territories and she is no longer my rep.  I got to see a sneak preview of the next Rowan mag. From what I can remember, it was divided into 3 sections. The first one was chunky sweaters, scarves and jackets knitted in Big Wool, Felted Tweed Chunky and Cocoon.  The next section was all fair isle and tartan knitting – lots of designs by Kaffe in all over fair isle in Felted Tweed and Kidsilk Haze. The last section is devoted to classic styles that suit all ages – one of the models is 81 (hope for me yet!) – the designs were plain or striped and used Cashsoft, Kidsilk Haze and Wool Cotton.
There are 4 new wools – I only saw a ball of one of them which was British Sheep Breeds in a boucle style yarn – it is only going to be available in Ecru. There are 2 new shades of Kidsilk Haze, a red and a deep green, new shades of Lima and Alpaca Cotton and most other things. I shall be getting a visit from my new rep soon and then I will see all the yarns.
John goes to Scotland on Wednesday – I can do some yarn smuggling!
Now I must go and iron. Back tomorrow and Jackson will be back then too. He says he is too hot to lift paw to key tonight.
