Knitter's Review
April 29, 2004

The best things come with paper umbrellas!Fashion is fickle. Fittingly enough, my vote for the most interesting summer yarn of 2004 goes to a yarn that may not last much beyond the season itself.

Depending on your personal taste, Rowan's new Cotton Braid is either weird or enchanting—but it's definitely unusual.

Coming next week: a report from the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival!

In the Boutique: Isle of Ewe
Two innocent sheep graze on a tropical island, beneath which is the simple inscription, "Isle of Ewe." Not only is our Isle of Ewe correspondence card a cute play on words, but it's a wonderful way to express your appreciation for someone while keeping the mood light and playful.
