Knitter's Review
January 20, 2011
Riihivilla in Pink

Few pleasures match that of rediscovering a favorite yarn—and the passage of time can make it even more worthy of your adoration. Our January Knitter's Book of Wool Ravelry woolalong breed is Finn, which prompted me to order a new batch of Riihivilla, the naturally dyed Finn yarn from Finland.

Maybe my hands have just grown more appreciative, or the yarn has gotten even better. Either way, it's too lovely not to share with you again. Care to re-swatch Riihivilla with me?

Meet Me in New York
A reminder to my New York friends, join me for the first-ever Vogue Knitting Live this weekend at the Hilton New York. In addition to the few classes that still have spots, there are also one-hour presentations and a marketplace. I'll be teaching about yarn, delivering my State of the Yarn Union address on Sunday morning at 9am, and then signing books at the Knitty City booth from 11am to noon. I hope to see you there!

In the Forum: Outer Edge Increases
Barbara is working the edging on a blanket. The instructions simply say to increase at the beginning and end of every other row. Her question: Which type of increase will look best? How would you work them?
