February 8, 2001
This has been a red-letter week.
Not only did I get to shovel my way out from under two feet of snow, but I also received the latest editions of both Interweave Knits and Vogue Knitting.
If you haven't received your copies yet or aren't sure if you want to buy them, check out our preview of each issue below. Next week we'll take a look inside the latest Rowan Knitting magazine, too!
Felting with Brown Sheep
Last week we discussed the general process of felting natural fibers. This week we look more closely at how four yarns from Brown Sheep perform in the washing machine. Brown Sheep yarns are my personal favorites for felting, and I think you'll understand why when you see the results.
Many of you have emailed me asking for good baby blanket patterns. This week I show you a small but colorful collection of well-designed baby blanket patterns.
