In this month's One-Skein Wonders series I've shown how you can make one special skein go a long way.
This week we turn the tables and show how to make many leftover yarns into one, special skein that goes even farther.
The Magic of Mixing
The process is called magic ball knitting, and many people have already enjoyed experimenting with it. Learn how you too can turn stash leftovers into an amazing multicolored object without ever having to carry more than one strand!
Sweaters for Men
If you're a man or just like knitting for them, there's a new book for you. It's called "Simply Beautiful Sweaters for Men," and we take it out for a spin this week.
