Summer and Rowan magazine…….

It has finally started!! The long awaited summer is here………and it looks like is going to stay, well at least for few weeks.

It just feel amazing to eat outside, enjoy coffee in the warm glow of the sun and let my feet be free in flipflops….saying that,  I’m discovering my love for retro footwear, the shoes that I use to wear as a little girl are back in fashion and they make them in adult sizes, especially Ju Ju jellies. I remember I had them in few colours and would wear them throughout the summer, so how can I not treat myself to a pair of them! and I love them!!

Happy feet 🙂

Just to make matters all the better Rowan new magazine 54 is out!! and WOW!! as alwsy they never disapoint, the magazine is just packed full with stunning garments. As always the magazine is divided into three sections: Romancing, Folk and Essentilas and each part is jut amazing! Romancing is my favourite, full of  beutiful lace and pattern knits. The photographs are shot in Haddon Hall in Debrishire and just inhance the decedance and luxury of each garment.

Folk section is very colourfull taking it’s roots from nomadic eastern culture. Lots of fairisle which I just adore.

Few month ago I had the pleasure to preview Rowan new collection and it has been long and  painful wait for the yarns and books to finally arrive as my fingers were itching to get started on new garments! The lovely Brigitte in Angora Haze from Angora Haze brochure is first on my list.

Also, fantastic collection from Winchester school of art. ‘Beetween the Wars’ garments capture perfectly the style of 30’s and 40’s, very feminine, elegant and well fitting garments. The whole collection is available as online download. 
The magazine as always is full of fantastic articles, interviews and helpful tips; this time is steeking, vital if you want to adapt sweater into cardigan. Perfect Summer read 🙂 
Hope you all are enjoying the lovely sun!
