New Magazines on the Block

If you do not already know, Rowan 40 is out. I found the patterns not as interesting. Only a couple caught my eye.

Next up is Debbie Bliss fall collection of Pure Cashmere. The patterns meant for this range was also blah. The aran sweater in there cover takes 19 skeins of yarns, but do bear in mind that each skein is only 25grams with 45 metres. The yarn takes 5mm needles and the tension is 18 sts 25 rows. Anyways the rest of the pattern takes just a few skeins.

However, Lousia Harding surprises me with her winter collection of patterns. Not that I wear wool in this climate.

I'm still tapping my fingers for the Rebecca Fall/Winter issue

Phildar will definitely come out with thick and fluffy kind of designs, which are just undesirable in this climate, again.

FFL is up to 70% completion. So i think i still need to work like 5 rounds each day which meant I need to work on it 5 hours each day. Now, I need 36hours a day.

I feel your pain! I've opted not to renew my Rowan subscription since the patterns have been so garish lately. Maybe they'll get their act together soon!
