I have finished my first ever Rowan design completed while the magazine was still current!
Usually I am about five seasons behind. This featured in Rowan 39, Spring 2006 can you believe, and was designed by the former Rowan consultant at my local department store, Carol Meldrum. Now if Carol was still there she might have something to say about my (whisper) colour loss problem.
This is me at long last in my Deep bolero which probably only dried out because of my breath over it every two minutes to see if it was ready yet.
It was knitted on 4mm and 5mm needles as specified in the shades
Cape(6) , Ghost(1), Powder(1), Blueberry(1) of Summer Tweed.
It also looks nice closed with a fancy clasp, but for now it can just grip my form. The two sides do meet by the way, in case you're wondering, but it is nice open like in their picture.
At the moment I am ignoring the blue water problem as best I can. ;-)
