Knitter's Review

How often do you use the yarn that's specified in a pattern? I'm guessing not always. I certainly don't.

But how confident are you about the yarn you've chosen to use instead?

To help ease any worries you may have about substituting one yarn for another, this week we reprise my multi-part tutorial on how to make headache-free yarn substitutions.

This Weekend in Maine
Forget L.L. Bean or the outlet shops, this weekend in Freeport, Maine, it's all about fiber as the ninth-annual SPA Knit and Spin takes place. Divided between the Hilton Garden Inn and the Harraseeket Inn, the informal gathering includes a marketplace and lots of peer-led learning opportunities.

In the Forum: Seams, It Seems
Ellie is finishing her Mama Bear sweater and needs help seaming the ribbing so that the pattern isn't interrupted. Share how you'd do it and find out what others have suggested.
