Knitter's Review
June 29, 2006

yarn lounging on the porch

Welcome back! It's been a busy two weeks since we were last in touch.

Perhaps the biggest news is that Knit Picks unveiled a new low-priced interchangeable circular knitting needle set. Forums have been buzzing and I've received countless emails from readers asking for a review.

The good news is that I've actually been preparing a review for months now, having tested early prototypes and played with the final shipping product. So, without further ado, let's take a closer look at the new Knit Picks interchangeable circular needle set that may revolutionize interchangeables as we know them.

Calendar Highlight
Beanies—often referred to as "watch caps" here in the U.S.—are a cherished regional art form in Central Australia. For the past 10 years, fiber artisans and beanie enthusiasts alike have gathered to exhibit and compete at the Alice Springs Beanie Festival in Alice Springs, Australia. Even if you're on another continent, check out the event Web site for some amazingly inspiring photographs of previous years' entries.

In the Forums: Project Fatigue?
I was amazed at the number of people who responded to one member's post about project fatigue. What helps you stay interested in your projects?
