Rowan Extravaganza

On E-Bay today, there are a multitude of Rowan magazines up for auction that include: #1, #2, #3, #4, #5, #8, #9, #10, #13, #16, #18, and #19. Some are priced well and some are going very high. I read one comment that said certain early Rowan magazines have sold for over $400.00 US! Since I splurged on my lucky #s 7 & 17, I probably will not win any of these auctions unless by fluke. I have not even bid (yet). My mags arrived Saturday and I am in love with 3 intarsia designs from #7. It would take me a while to afford/collect the necessary yarns. If you have been searching for a special volume, these issues appear in good shape with many coming from France.

Today’s Knitting News
Smooch’s back is finished. I started the front and hope to have Smooch wearable by the weekend. For those who inquired about availability of printed Rowan All Seasons, here is a color list and web addresses PrintedASC.pdf. I purchase mine at my LYS (no web site) and the patterned ASC costs slightly more than the plain. The colorway has knit up beautifully for the back, no pooling.
