Knitter's Review

Who among us hasn't gazed at a new yarn and wondered how many skeins we'd need for a hat, or a sweater, or perhaps a pair of mittens?

The most urgent and frequently asked question in knitting—"How much do I need?"—gets answered this week in a graceful, simple new app from knitwear designer Hannah Fettig and her programmer husband Abe. Meet StashBot.

Yarn Smarts
While we're on the subject of wondering about yarn, how'd you like to spruce up your own yarn confidence? My "Know Your Yarn" class can help, and here's $20 off just for you.

Coming Up
This weekend the Palmer House Hilton in Chicago hosts Vogue Knitting Live with classes, lectures, and a giant marketplace. Meanwhile, the Southeastern Animal Fiber Fair takes place at the Western North Carolina Agricultural Center in Fletcher, and the seventh annual Fiber Expo happens at the Washtenaw Farm Council Grounds in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Next weekend, the Knitting and Stitching Show fills Simmonscourt at the Royal Dublin Society in Dublin, Ireland. These and hundreds more can be found on our calendar of upcoming events.

In the Forums: Android Apps?
StashBot is an iOS app, but what about knitting-related apps for Android devices?

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

We'll talk again in two weeks!
