I don't know about you, but I've had a hard time concentrating these days. Worrisome world events are unfolding, minute by minute, before our very eyes.
You could say that, within this context, reading about knitting is the last thing we need. But I disagree.
Yarn and books have always given me solace in tough times. And this week the two come together in one book that offers eye-opening possibilities for the knitted stitch.
New This Week
The book claims to offer a very different approach to knitting. While it's definitely not the only book you'll ever need, it will expand your knitterly horizons.
In the Boutique
Give your favorite project a special home in one of our colorful fabric knitting bags, all of which are on sale this week. And in jewelry news, a third - that's right, third batch of knitting lady pins is due to arrive tomorrow. Thanks for your patience!
In the Forums
Looking for a good book recommendation? Check out the what are you reading right now thread.
And just in time for spring, one forum member asks what is the wildest women's pattern you've ever seen?
