Knitter's Review
September 7, 2006

Potpourri yarn from La Lana Wools

Six years ago this week I hit "send" on the very first issue of Knitter's Review. We've been through a lot together since then, from novelty scarves and self-patterning sock yarns to felted totes and socks on circs. You're my friends and my family.

At the very beginning I had only a sneaking suspicion that knitters wanted meatier information about the tools and materials we use. But over the course of almost 300 newsletters you've validated that suspicion, proving that we are indeed an intelligent, discerning, insatiable bunch. And KR readers are now over 30,000 strong.

For me, KR is really a conversation among friends, you and me. I value your friendship and your trust, and I hope KR will always be worthy of it.

Here's to another six years!

Featured Article: Farm Yarns
Just like the corn at farm stands always seems tastier than what you find in the supermarket, farm yarns have a special place in the knitting world. To help you navigate all the great farm yarns out there, I've assembled my 14 favorite farm yarn reviews from over the past six years.

In the Forums: Our Demise?
A recent article in Publisher's Weekly speculated that knitting is on its way out. What do you have to say about this?
