|Summertime means one thing for knitters: fiber festivals! If you attend more than one large fiber festival on the East Coast, you'll notice many of the same vendors show up.|
But these events don't have to be the fiber-lover's equivalent of the Great Mall of America. You can find the unusual and unexpected at smaller, newer fiber festivals such as the Maine Fiber Frolic, which I visited last weekend. Join me in a pictorial tour of the show.
Also New This Week
In the Boutique: NeedleSizer Sale!
The more knitting needles you have, the more challenging it can be to keep track of which is which. That's why, as a special treat this week, I've discounted our tortoise-shell plastic NeedleSizers by 20 percent. Enjoy!
In the Forums: Successful Substitutions
Is it safe to substitute wool in a pattern that calls for cotton, or is there more at stake?
