Dream in Color

Ask your LYS which yarns they can't keep in stock, and chances are Dream in Color will be on their list. Why?

Look to the company's name for your clue. Dream in Color offers four weights of superwash Merino, all of which have been spun and hand-dyed in the United States. And color is the reason knitters keep coming back for more. This week I take their sock-weight yarn, Smooshy, out for a test knit.

This Weekend: Retreat Time!
By the time you read this, I'll already be at the Williams Inn awaiting the first arrivals for this year's Knitter's Review Retreat. I'll be Twittering regular reports throughout the weekend and invite you to follow along in our adventures.

In the Forum: Blocking Basics
Tina has completed several projects, all knit from natural fibers. She dutifully soaked and blotted them, pinned them to a blocking board, and waited patiently for them to dry. And yet some of her pieces just won't stay still. A lace scarf that curls completely upon itself, or a silk shawl that didn't retain its look. Is she doing something wrong? What should she do?

Please note: There will be no newsletter next week because of the Thanksgiving holiday here in the United States. We'll be back in your in-box December 4th with a full report from the Knitter's Review Retreat plus our annual holiday gift list.

As always, thank you for your readership and your support.

Happy knitting, and I'll see you in the Forums!
Clara Parkes
