I do have a bit of news today!
I received a newsletter from Rowan and it had a section devoted to what’s new for Spring/Summer 2013. It shows All Seasons Chunky in 100g balls with 14 shades and a new yarn called Softknit Cotton. This is 92% cotton and 8% polyamide and there are 14 shades. There is a pattern book devoted to each yarn. There are also three other new books – Summer Textures ( it does not say which yarns this one supports), Simple Shapes Cotton Glace and Simple Shapes Handknit Cotton.
There is also a photo of Magazine #52 and the following description of what it contains:
Glorious inspired by blossoms and the abundance of summer flowers. Playful, fun and supremely feminine with an eclectic mix of colour and pattern creating delight and optimism.
Ikon combines pixelated pattern, geometrics and sharp modern graphics inspired by technology of pixelated digital patterning contrast against the bold graphics of the modernist age.
Essentials the key shapes of the season in a simpler and more accessible way.
There are also several new Regia sock yarns.
I don’t yet know what has been discontinued or what new colours there are in existing yarns. I will have to wait for the rep to visit to find out more!
Nothing much else of importance to report. I forgot to say contest entries must be in by midnight Tuesday.
