New This Week
On average, how much time do you spend knitting each week?
Sock-of-the-month club advice
September 7, 2000
Welcome to the first issue of Knitter's Review! I am excited to bring you what I hope will be a valuable new part of your love of yarn and knitting.
Knitter's Review is a free weekly e-mail newsletter that will help you select the best yarns, books, shops, and other knitting-related resources. Our companion Web site brings the newsletter - and a lot more - to your fingertips.
We're also an independent publication. We have no affiliations with yarn manufacturers or retailers that could get in the way of our editorial mission. This means you'll get the honest truth from someone just like yourself.
Through Knitter's Review, I hope to help you spend your money wisely and connect you to a broader, richer knitting community. This is the first step of an exciting journey for all of us. Let me know how you like it!
Getting Fluffy with Classic Elite La Gran
Online Yarn Shop:
Since the mid-90s, Ann Cannon Brown has done a remarkable job of building an online yarn empire for herself. A monthly newsletter tells of new specials, closeouts, and oddballs. Books come individually wrapped in paper to prevent damaging the cover -- a very nice touch.
Mohair has long been known as the "sneeze" yarn. It doesn't have to be this way. You can significantly de-fuzz your mohair by putting the yarn or finished item in a plastic bag in your freezer overnight. Obviously, this won't change the fundamental structure of the fiber, but it'll keep your sniffles to a minimum.
I'm sorry! The poll has been momentarily disabled while we try to figure out what, on our site, caused the server to slow down to a halt last night. Thanks for your patience!
let us hear from you!
