I was really honoured to have my simple fairisle cardigan featured in the latest issue of Vogue Knitting.
For anyone who is a cardigan lover like me this is a brilliant issue, with the following being some of my favourites.
Cabled yoke cardigan by Kristen Tendyke
Fairisle yoke cardigan by Sandi Prosser
Lace yoked cardigan by Norah Gaughan
Although its not a cardigan I had to include this beautiful shawl by Anniken Allis
I have taken a break from designing for autumn 2017 to do the boring but necessary job of uploading patterns. The good news though is that the first two Rowan loves brochures are now available to download! They are available as single patterns on both LoveKnitting and Ravelry and in an ebook format on Ravelry.
Rowan loves … felted tweed and kidsilk haze.
There are a selection of the designs shown below.
Rowan loves ….. handknit cotton and softknit cotton.
Unfortunately due to family and personal issues I have had to take a few months out from the world of knitting but I am slowly starting to come round to all things yarny once more.
Over the past few weeks I have been lucky enough to art direct some of Rowans photo shoots and whilst I obviously can’t show you any of the designs I thought I would share some behind the scenes photos. (Please note I don’t think the Care bears will make the final cut ;))
I will try and share more behind the scenes images once I work through the mass of snaps on my camera.
A few weeks ago I decided to challenge my creativity at an embroidery workshop and the inspirational Hope and Elvis.
The class was taught by the lovely Marna Lunt who creates beautiful embroidered landscapes some of which you can see in the images below. Just as inspiring though is the workshop space itself, if you ever get a chance to visit I can thoroughly recommend it.
