Knitter's Review
January 22, 2015
Bags are packed, let's go!

I've reached that point in January when I eye the map and dream of travel. It's a good time to make plans for the coming year, and there's no reason why those plans shouldn't include some knitting.

This week I'll tell you about some of the most intriguing tours and trips scheduled to take place in 2015, from South America to Alaska, the Mediterranean, Iceland, and beyond. Shall we?

Coming Up
The town of Oxford, Mississippi, hosts its fifth-annual Oxford Fiber Arts Festival from January 29th to February 1st. Classes range from crochet to beginning tatting, Celtic rug hooking, felting, spinning, Kool-Aid dyeing, as well as various knitting techniques.

In the Forums: Swatching Help
The more Jenny reads about swatching, the more confused she becomes. How do designers figure out the final gauge, and do you really need to wash your swatches?

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

We'll talk again in two weeks!
