In love

*squeals in delight*. I have discovered that the Australian distributor for Rowan has agreed to renegotiated prices for Rowan yarns and books. Instead of the almost $50 books, Rowan books are now available for just a bit over $35 depending on where you get them from.

Having a look at The Wool Shack, I have come across Rowan 41 - unfortunately, there aren't too many things I love, but i ABSOLUTELY love this pattern :

However, reading the pattern notes, I have discovered that it is crochet :( I've never really tried crochet, and this might be completely in my mindset, but I always thought crochet = doilies and the like. But this pattern might just be enough to convince me to learn to crochet...

OR (*lightbulb*), does anyone know whether it is possible to convert crochet patterns to knitting patterns? I would love you for life!

I love the crochet one, it is so Chinese style. You should learn how to crochet, it is more fun to learn so you can wear more beautiful crochet cardigan.

handknit168 : ooh i didnt think about the chinese style - but i can definitely see it now!!

The problem is i've *tried* to crochet some buttons before and failed dismally so I feel like it's out of my reach!
