Herman just brought us a box full of the new Rowan magazines!
The first section is Heavenly, with a beautiful collection of ethereal and dreamlike designs, like Spook, by Sarah Hatton, knit in Kid Silk Haze:
Finally there’s Elemental, a sophisticated collection of gentle and unassuming designs inspired by the natural textures of rock and wood. I’m adding Lisa Richardson’s Stoney vest to my wish list. It’s knit in the wonderful Summer Tweed yarn that’s 70% silk and 30% cotton:
In addition to the fantastic designs there’s an informative section on sewing up your garments (I’m studying this one). There’s also a great article about going green with the new Rowan Purelife cotton (coming soon..) – it’s produced in a way that respects the environment and all those involved in creating it. And there’s a great profile of Sarah Hatton, one of Rowan’s talented in-house designers.
We also received a bunch of other fantastic new Rowan books, stay tuned for details…
