Knitter's Review
June 5, 2014
a skein on my chair

The yarn won't hit the shelves for another month or so, but I want you to be prepared.

Rowan has done something with mohair. It's quite different from Kidsilk Haze, but it has similarly disarming skein appeal.

Is skein appeal enough? What's up with Rowan's new Mohair Haze?

Coming Up
Head up to my corner of the woods this weekend for the 14th-annual Maine Fiber Frolic at the Windsor Fairgrounds, about 90 minutes north of Portland. If you're closer to Colorado, you won't want to miss the Estes Park Wool Market. Then, from June 14-15, Colfax, Iowa, hosts the Iowa Sheep and Wool Festival. These and hundreds more can be found on our calendar of upcoming events.

Summer Learning
Our friends at Craftsy have gone a little crazy and put a ton of their online classes on sale. Not just the knitting workshops (including mine), but everything, from sewing basics and cake decorating to artisan cheese making. And not just a little discount, but up to 50 percent.

In the Forums: Doing One's Duty
We've heard it before, you can't bring knitting needles with you to jury duty. Miriam was determined. With a little creative thinking, we figured out how she could do it.

As always, I thank you for letting me be a part of your knitting life.

We'll talk again on June 19th!
