I have some fun knitting-related news to share! Last fall, Rowan Yarns put out a call to yarn lovers everywhere seeking out 15 international Rowan Ambassadors. I sent in this photo (above) and a 100-word application letter, which was easy to do since I'm a huge Rowan fan. Then I crossed my fingers and waited. A few months later, I received an email that said I had made it to the shortlist ... and then I got another email saying that I had been chosen to be a Rowan Ambassador. What does this mean, exactly? Basically, I will be paying attention to knitting trends, giving feedback on new yarns, and sharing new yarn/book releases on social media outlets amongst other things. I'll also get to preview collections and seasonal yarns. I can't wait to share everything with you. I'm pretty thrilled!
And, here are the other Rowan Ambassadors! We've all had a chance to 'meet' online/gush about yarn and knitting, and I've really enjoyed checking out all of their beautiful work. I've linked each person to their Ravelry page, so take a look for yourself.
