Remember all that lovely Rowan Fine Art Sock yarn you bought?

 We now have the Rowan Fine Art Sock trunk show in the shop!  This beautiful display of knit & crocheted garments shows off many of the designs from the two companion books for Rowan Fine Art Sock - Rowan Fine Art Collection & Rowan Fine Art Accessories Collection! This is a fantastic yarn for socks and more!  It's a shiny, strong and super durable blend of 45% Merino Wool, 25% Polyamide, 20% Kid Mohair, 10% Silk, hand dyed in amazing colors! Most of the colorways even compliment each other!  Take a look at some of the great patterns designed especially for this yarn!





Looking for a lovely last minute gift for a knitter or crocheter?  We also have the Rowan Fine Art Towers already to go!


 Such a lovely group of ladies all wrapped up in scarves and mitts from these collections!

The Secoto wrist warmers knit up in color 310 Maple will keep your wrists & hands toasty warm with fun baubles, traveling stitches, and lace.

 Stay snug and comfortable in Baines, a crocheted wrap that crosses in the front and ties in the back.  This one is worked up in color 311 Hornbeam. The pattern is in Fine Art Accessories Collection.

Wearing snowflakes!  That's how you'll feel wearing crocheted Bhengu, an artistic scarf created with large and small motif's interconnected making it a very portable project!  This one is worked up in the neutral color 309 Elm. Another pattern found in Fine Art Accessories Collection.

 This stunning piece is the Lark Scarf in Fine Art Collection! The design used 4 hanks of Fine Art in color 307 Pheasant in a wave pattern with purl ridges defining the waves. We love the way the colors pool!

 Wow!  Look how stunning 303 Waxwing looks in the lacy Starling Wrap found in the Fine Art Collection.

The Fine Art Collection contains 10 fabulous sock patterns! With so many different styles it will be tough deciding which to knit first!
 
















Terry just loves 306 Lapwing! Look how beautifully it stripes in the Goose socks and the Falcon Scarf! The Goose pattern even has instructions for both ankle socks and knee socks! 

If you have a hankering to try out a little bit of color work then the Grouse socks are just the ticket! The lovely snowflake motif is worked in a combination of intarsia and fair isle and the heel is worked in short-rows. This pair was made with 304 Raven as the main color and 302 Tawny for the pattern.

 The Ibis stockings stripe 3 colors all the above the knee for a fun and funky look! This pair was made with Lapwing, Pheasant and Waxwing!

Perhaps you're more in the mood for thick, slouchy cabled sock?  Then the Cuckoo pattern is for you! Two strands of Tawny were held together for this highly textured sock.

 



Snipe is a great sock pattern for either a man or a woman.  Shown here worked up in Kingfisher.  This sock features ribbing with a traveling stitch that forms a little cable each time it meets a rib.





So if you can, stop by and take a look while the trunk show is here! If you can't come into the shop, please let us know if you have any questions about this yarn, these projects, or anything else!
