    1. To knit with a reverse stitch. 2. Thread made of twisted gold or silver wire. 3. To flow with a curling or rippling motion as a shallow stream does over stones.

I love seeing your choices and commentary. I never see the Rowan books, so it's a treat for me. Strangely, the granny square cardigan appeals to me, too. I think it's the colors and the Irish crochet roses that set it apart, and the rest of the design, of course. The plaid is almost exactly like one of my first sweaters, sans hood. I think it was a Leisure Arts pattern, and I did it really big. I loved it. I seem to be very attracted to horizontal cabling lately, too. There was a skirt with a cabled hem band in someone's collection a couple years ago that I still think about.
