September 11, 2003
|Two years ago today many of us turned to knitting for solace as we watched the day's events unfold.|
Today we honor the memory of those whose lives were lost on that day, as well as those whose lives were forever altered. We move forward, but we do not forget.
New This Week
Is it possible for yarn to have a hollow core? Classic Elite claims yes with its silky alpaca and wool blend Wings.
While we catch up with all the orders we received for the plastic NeedleSizer tool last week, here's a new nugget for you: The 2004 Year in Yarn calendar begins shipping on September 15!

Fun, Fiber, and Friendship this Fall
What do fall leaves and fabulous fiber have in common? They -- along with more than 60 of your fellow knitters -- will be at the second-annual Knitter's Review Retreat this November. Although the overnight portion is sold out, you can still join us on November 8 for the Saturday workshop. Stay for dinner and enjoy an evening of spinning and knitting by the large stone fireplace in our meeting room!
September is when students start to hit the books again. Even if you're not a student, you can still hit the books with our September prize: a $50 gift certificate to Amazon.com. Simply stay subscribed and you'll automatically be in the drawing at the end of this month.
As always, thank you for your readership. Happy knitting, and I'll see you in the forums!
