Too much Rowan?

Can you have too much Rowan? The great thing about the start of a new year is that I get to think about all of the possibilities. Part of that involves stash enhancement and pattern perusal. Yum. So, I bought these lovely packs:

First the Cork. I am so disappointed that Rowan has discontinued this yarn. It is light enough for winter wear in Texas and a little chunkier for a fast knit. I bought the grey last year with the Cork Collection Book. The green was a bargain through ebay ($30 for the pack!).

Here are the patterns that interest me:

This is Bless. I bought the grey to make this since it looks fairly classic and, big plus, cables!

And I think that Martha will look really nice in the blue:

I'm not sure what to do with the green.. But there is always that cute cabled sock pattern in Holiday Handknits.

And, a little late in the denim parade, I want to use this:

To make this cool little jacket:
That's the two color Voyage from Denim People. That just looks fun. Plus, I want to test out the denim before I commit to making a sweater for my husband. He needs to take a touch test of the fabric to see if it works...

And, last but currently on the needles, Rowanspun Chunky.

This lovely yarn is discontinued, but it continues to amaze me as I work with it. It has nubby little flecks of bright green, blue and red that show up every once in a while. I'll get a better shot of the knitted fabric next week. And, here's what it will be:

This is Tippi from Rowan's A Season's Tale. Right now I'm on sleeve island, but should finish the pieces this weekend. Pictures soon!
