The colors are actually brown and gold.
I particularly like "Maple" by Marie Wallin, knitted in Felted Tweed (page 12). I love color and this design blends ten shades beautifully. You have to see all the pictures in the book to fully appreicate the design. If I didn't have so many other sweaters already planned and sitting, waiting patiently, in my stash, I think I'd probably be casting on for this one soon. However, given that Rowan discontinues their yarns and colors so often (a pet peeve of mine), maybe I should stash the yarn for this one, too.
Rowan magazines are also for reading and there are articles about designers, Shetland Lace, a Travel Journal, and more. Of course, there are also some designs that make me ask "what were they thinking?"
Do you have a knitting "bucket list"? I do, and near the top of the list is the wish to have a design in a Rowan magazine. I don't know if it will ever happen, but you never know. Check out the future Rowan 100 and see if you can find my name in it!!
