Foxfire Fiber yarn

Fiber festivals can be overwhelming. With so much yarn available, how do you know what's good and what's to be avoided?

I can't guide you through each festival, but I can point you toward one special yarn that you'll likely see on the New England festival circuit this summer. It comes from an equally special vendor who raises sheep in western Massachusetts. The yarn is called Upland Wool and Alpaca from Foxfire Fiber.

Mark Your Calendars
If I had a dime for every time someone asked me where she could find a calendar of knitting events, I'd be writing this from my cashmere-filled estate. The truth? We maintain a big calendar right here at Knitter's Review. A real human being screens every event to make sure it's legit and worth your time. So check it out and prepare your summer festival travels now.

In the Forum: Better Button Bands
When you're working a cardigan, do you prefer to knit the button band separately and sew it on, or pick up stitches and knit the button band directly onto the cardigan? And what are the benefits of either method?
