i'm in love



anna from the new fall rowan knitting are TDF. i am not really much of a sock girl, but these are sooo cute. there's another shot in the book of the designer wearing them kind of scrunched down over textured tights and they look almost like boots. very cool. what's your fave from the new rowan?

I like cobweb, it's very elegant and would look nice casual and dressy. And I adore those socks. But that's about it... But seeing things online and seeing them in the actual magazine will change things for me...

i love them too and already started to knit them: the pattern is awkward, is very strange...but i desperately need to knit them!
there are so many lovely pattern in new rowan...

just picked up 4 balls of the rowan 4-ply soft (yummy fine merino) in "sooty" today and cast on for these babies...so far, so good...

how are the annasocks going??? what made me worry: ther're no decreases beneath the calf... and there's a strange "cut yarn" at the heel, where it doesn't really make sense....i decided to use some opal sock yarn in a solid black, but maybe the pattern works only with 4ply soft or other merino....
keep my fingers crossed!!!!

funny... when i first saw anna i thought of you! I want a pair of these badly! i must say, that i love the ball gown, just on the principles of sheer ridiculousness!

Well, talk about being inspired... now I HAVE to knit them!

kate said...

sabine: you are so right about that heel "cut yarn" thing. no need whatsoever...must be a tech error. i'm also worried about ankle bunching since there are no dec down there...i'm hoping the blocking will help that! almost done with anna #1...will post pix soon. tammy: the ball gown is OTT. can you imagine actually making that?? talk about a WIP. i think it would make an amazing wedding gown.
