Knitter's Review
September 10, 2009
even daisies get the blues

Only a special yarn can carry an entire book of patterns. The yarn has to have widespread distribution, lots of fans, ample creative possibility, and a pretty stable history.

For Alison Crowther-Smith, that yarn is Rowan Kidsilk Haze. She pays tribute to it in her new book, Silky Little Knits. Fans of the brushed mohair mystique will want this one.

This Weekend in New England
Venture up the coast to my back yard for the Fiber College on Penobscot Bay. This friendly community event takes place in Searsport, Maine, approximately four hours from Boston. The outdoor marketplace features more than 30 vendors, and workshops include not only knitting, spinning, weaving, and dyeing, but also things like chair caning, quilting, and wood carving.

In the Forum: Storing Needles
It started as a discussion about using CD cases to store circulars. Soon, Forum members were swapping ideas for storing interchangeable needle sets and single-pointed straight needles. Get some ideas and tell us how you store your needles.
