New Rowan Magazine Out; I Must Make This

The autumn/winter issue of Rowan hit the US shelves this week. It's fantastic and I am forever a fan of their yarn and designs. This cape design called, "Kelly," really grabbed me and I'm dying to make it! Going to New York in October with my love, and this will be perfect for our fall trip. If I can get working quickly, I can do this in time. It's so cute. The design is by Sarah Hatton, who also designed my Wallis (go figure, dolman sleeves) and, I think, a couple of other things I've made. I clearly like her style.

Finished knitting the Entrelac stole, and now for the finishing. Photographs of the FO will be posted soon!

The blog Knitting Daily posted today about Entrelac, and I thought I'd share, in light of the stole I'm currently finishing. It's an interesting technique, and if you're a knitter, you might try it! (Not recommended for beginners, but everyone else)

About to finish the stole, then I'll post pics, already thinking 4 projects ahead. :)

Jackie Sweater

Hi. I want to make this sweater. Saw Laurie Metcalf rocking it on Roseanne and I'm dying for it. I'll probably make it in green. Doesn't have to be exactly like this one, but I definitely want the crossover shawl collar and the cabled eyelet front. I can make it up, but it'll take some work. Does anyone have a pattern for something similar to this? Please direct me if you do, thanks!
Jackie's pissed at Booker.
