Knitter's Review
August 4, 2011
the Sock Summit flash mob in action

Last weekend I climbed the Sock Summit with 6,000 other intrepid knitters. Together we taught and learned, coveted and acquired, spun, knit, and broke into spontaneous dance in front of the Oregon Convention Center. Join me for pictures and stories from the 2011 Sock Summit.

This weekend in Maine
Bartlett Yarns has one of the last remaining spinning mules in the United States. This machine creates a lofty woolen-spun yarn that looks just like the old-fashioned farmhouse yarns of yore—and is also quite forgiving on the needles. This weekend is your chance to see the spinning mule in action as the Harmony, Maine, mill hosts its annual open house. The mill is north of Augusta, approximately four hours from Boston, and entirely worth the trip.

In the Forum: Heat
How does your knitting change during the warmer summer months? Do you knit more, or less, or just differently?
