Knitter's Review
September 9, 2004

fall leaves and fibersA few trees here in Maine are already beginning to show their fall colors, which means it's time to take out the sweaters and prepare them for another season of wear.

In my yarn reviews, I like to use Ivory dish soap to get a realistic sense of how the yarn will survive a standard wash. But when it comes time to wash my own handknits, I'm far more picky.

This week I tell you more about my most trusted soap for handknits.
