Knitter's Review
October 29, 2009
taking yarn outside for a fall stroll

Have my last few sheep-centric newsletters been a little too "farmy" for you? Do you crave a softer, smoother yarn with fewer traces of the barnyard?

For the next two weeks, we'll be looking at two plush, supersoft organic Merino yarns—one spun in Italy, the other right here in Maine. We begin our Merino adventures this week with Tahki Lana, a spongy quick-knitting three-ply bulky yarn that's offered to us in five natural shades.

This Weekend in Ireland
Head to Dublin for The Knitting and Stitching Show, which takes place from October 29th to November 1st at the RDS Dublin. The event celebrates all textile arts, with vendors and classes focusing not only on knitting but also embroidery, crochet, felt, jewelry, and even rag rug-making.

In the Forum: The Knitting Influence
Do your loved ones fetch your knitting the minute crisis strikes? Do friends on trips bring home yarn for you? Does your UPS driver announce, "Yarn!" when he presents you with light packages? Tell us how others have adapted your knitting into their own lives.
