Knitter's Review
May 17, 2012
A Riihivilla mitten and a special Jenni the Potter mug

In the 12+ years I've been writing Knitter's Review, many yarns, tools, and knitting accessories have come and gone. Sometimes I'm pleasantly surprised by those products that remain.

This week I pay tribute to one such surprise. First reviewed in 2006, the little-known StitchKeepers by Rollie were only available from just a few shops and a personal Road Runner homepage.

Six years later, StitchKeepers are available almost everywhere. They've gone up in price by just fifty cents, and they're still one of my favorite accessories for DPN projects on the go. Here's the review.

Giveaway
I have two extra sets of StitchKeepers to give away. Want a set? Simply email giveaway@knittersreview.com and tell me what peril would befall your DPNs if their ends weren't protected. I'm giving extra points for creativity. The winner will be picked on May 23rd and announced next week.

In the Forums: Headlights
Speaking of gadgets, we're revisiting the topic of LED head-lamps for knitting. Do you use one?

This Weekend
From Michigan to Kentucky, Rhode Island to Pennsylvania, Vermont to California, I counted no fewer than 14 fiber festivals, fairs, markets, tours, and retreats taking place this weekend alone. Be sure to check out our online calendar of events to see what's happening near you.

As always, I thank you for your readership and your support.

Happy knitting, and I'll see you in the Forums,
Clara Parkes
