I just returned from a few days in Chicago meeting with Rowan. The fall yarns and garments are amazing. It’s too early for me to share pictures but I know that they are going to be a hit.
If you are on Instagram I suggest that you follow modeatrowan. They are going to start sharing some interesting things that will be happening at Rowan this fall.


Saturday April 20

It's almost here and we have great things planned. The purpose of LYS Day is to celebrate your local yarn shop. We will have lots of specials running in the store.

-all yarns that are already on sale will be an extra 10% off
-special kits
-special LYS Day colours

Most shops will be celebrating on Saturday April 27 but we will be at the Frolic so we are making April 20 the special day.

I have started a page on the blog to talk about LYS Day and what we will be doing in the store.

New Arrivals

Lirico from Louisa Harding

A new ribbon yarn for summer. One ball will make a summer cowl. Three or four balls are needed for a shawl.
We used four balls to make the Hipster Shawl (pattern purchased on Ravelry).
Vintage DK is a new yarn from Primrose. This is a double knitting weight yarn with 200m (225 yards) on a 100gram skein.

Who doesn't love a hand dyed tweed yarn?
New bags from Atenti will be arriving any day. This is the Blossom Blue Backsac.
I carry my Namaste Backpack every day and am very excited about the brand new colours.
Hue Loco has arrived. It will debut at LYS Day and then it will be available on the website.

Flat Rib Popover

Whether you wear it with denim or tailored pieces, this simple layer will have you dressed and out the door in a flash. It tapers imperceptibly to the hem for a boxy shape that doesn’t flare at the bottom. Dropped shoulders create a flattering line. The subtly textured rib pattern results in a smooth, flat finish that’s nice inside out, too.

Churchmouse Yarns re-yarned this shell in Rowan Cotton Cashmere—a DK-weight blend of cotton and cashmere that seamlessly combines softness with strength. Cotton Cashmere is lightweight, creates clear stitch definition, and, once knit up in our Popover, a lovely drape. Plus, it’s palette of fresh, tonal shades is perfect for a summery top!

You will need the pattern to Churchmouse's Flat Rib Popover which you can purchase in the store or on Ravelry.

Until the end of April we are offering Cotton Cashmere at 15% off.
