Rowan magazine #52 is here with beautiful patterns. This issue has more classic types of sweaters than in the past.

Two other pattern books from Rowan have arrived. Persian Nights makes use of Kid Silk Haze. A wonderfully soft kid mohair and silk in a lace weight. And, Easy Winter Knits makes use of bulky yarns in easy to knit sweaters, scarves and hats.

James Brett's Marble Chunky is a bulky acrylic with great patterns for adults and children. This is a machine washable and dryable yarn that is marled and changes color at the same time. The patterns are simple and quick to knit. Just right for that quick fall sweater.

Colorspun is Rowan's wool version of the Brett's chunky yarn but in a DK weight. If you don't like the look of chunky weight yarns, then this will provide the same effect but in a lighter weight yarn. The James Brett patterns for the DK weight are just what you need for that special sweater.

More yarns will be arriving soon so stay posted.

The new Denise 2Go needles are finally here. For those of you who travel and would like a very small set of carry along needles for that impromptu project that crops up, this is the solution. Even though it doesn't show you get cables and connectors. They're hidden behind the needles in a  pocket.

Denise Interchangeable Needles are proudly made in the USA.

Next time you stop by just ask us to show them to you.
