Welcome to the first issue of Knitter's Review! I am excited to bring you what I hope will be a valuable new part of your love of yarn and knitting.

Knitter's Review is a free weekly e-mail newsletter that will help you select the best yarns, books, shops, and other knitting-related resources. Our companion Web site brings the newsletter - and a lot more - to your fingertips.

We're also an independent publication. We have no affiliations with yarn manufacturers or retailers that could get in the way of our editorial mission. This means you'll get the honest truth from someone just like you.

Through Knitter's Review, I hope to help you spend your money wisely and connect you to a broad, diverse knitting community. This is the first step of an exciting journey for all of us. Let me know how you like it!

If one book could turn around the public perception of knitting, this is it. It offers well-written profiles of accomplished knitters and fiber artists across the country, paired with gorgeous photographs and select patterns.

Online Yarn Shop:

Ann Cannon Brown has done a remarkable job 
of building an online yarn empire for herself. A 
monthly newsletter tells of new specials, closeouts, 
and oddballs. Books come individually wrapped 
in paper to prevent damaging the cover -- a very 
nice touch.
