Rowan Exchange

It's that time of the year and the Rowan Exchange partners have been paired up. I thought about this for, rummaged through the stash, and selected what I think are perfect patterns and yarns. My recipient like "berry colours" and girly knits.

Allthings Heather sock yarn in Valentine, and a pattern from the Interweave Favorite Socks book, I have changed my mind since I took this picture and opted not to do Go with the Flow, but Uptown Book Sock instead.

I like to include fun extras with my exchange, which can limit my shipping space, therefore the other project is ...............................

this beautiful beaded scarf by Louisa Harding from the Hats Gloves Scarves: Easy Designer Knits for Family and Friends book.

I have choosen clear beads and this wonderful Jo Sharp Alpaca Kid Lustre in Bright, I know the picture looks red, but it's actually a berry wine colour.

It's so exciting seeing what other people are planning to make for the exchange. I love the colour of the yarn (both types). The Jo Sharp looks sooooooo soft.
I spent last week deciding what to make and finally went and bought my yarn last night. Just need to find time to knit it now!
