What is this rowan crap?

Ok, I loved the idea of joining the rowan club. I got some "cork"... a yarn they are discontinuing, for a gift with some crazy poncho pattern. I will use the yarn, but don't you think sending knitters a new yarn would be a better plan? Maybe we would like the yarn and order some instead of wishing we could get more of that discontinued yarn. You also get a couple magazine throughout the year with your membership and access to some old patterns of theirs on the web.
I just got the Rowan#38.
Hmmmmm.
What is this suppose to be?
Grunge knitting or something.
Help me out here.

Really, I don't think I will make any of this.
Pandora is a maybe.
Spencer...I guess I could make the gloves.
Abigail Scarf...I love, but this involves some crocheting. I don't think so, maybe in the new year.
That is all that I would even consider making. I hope #39 produces something more practical.
I don't think I will be joining the Rowan club again.

Oh, Ene's is complete. Can I just say, that it is fabulous! This may be my favourite knit item so far. I am not a shawl person, but as a scarf...and little flip and wrap....I love it! I am just waiting for the ends to block. (it wouldn't all fit on the blocking board!) Pictures will be posted today!

Hmmm...I thought the gift was Kid Silk Haze. You "could" complain...

I completely agree about Rowan. I subscribed earlier this year and there was only one thing in 37 that I wanted to knit and NOTHING in 38 that I want to knit. No way am I renewing. Pity. I'm not sure who Rowan is trying to appeal to. I'm a young'un and I wouldn't be caught dead wearing anything in 38.
