On the Needles: Rowan Alpaca colour & yarn tasting

Another brief post I'm aftraid - not only due to the design deadlines looming fast, but I have had no email/internet service for my PC since Saturday. I'm currently 'piggy backing' my iphone personal hotspot.

And apologies for the topsy turvey pic, for some unfathomable reason it will not import the right way up!

I've been swatching with Rowan Alpaca colour - one of my favorite Rowan yarns with its muted tonal colour variegation, and it knits like butter. the finished design will not be in this colour though, but in a rich warm yellow (Topas).

This week I also enjoyed supporting a Rowan yarn tasting at local wool shop, Swansea Bay Yarns. This was really well attended and I think a great time was had by all trying out a wide range of Rowan yarns. You can see everyone was hard at work knitting a few rows in the various yarns:

Hope you are enjoying some knitting - what have you got on the go?
