Knitter's Review
February 17, 2005

snowball Last week we explored how Knit Picks went straight to the mills to produce all its own yarns and pass on the savings to its customers.

But Knit Picks isn't the only way to bypass the middleman. In this week's yarn review, I reveal a little-known doorway directly into the world of hand-dyed yarn cooperatives in Uruguay.


In the KR Boutique: Calendar Markdown
It's hard to believe we're already halfway through February. This can only mean one thing: Time to mark down the 2005 Year in Yarn calendars!

In the Forums: Copyright Questions
This week we explore the ethical question of copyright as it pertains to public library books. Is it OK (and should it be OK) to copy a pattern from a library book for personal use?

Knitter's Review Poll

Should we be able to photocopy a pattern from a library book, if it's just for personal use? (Never mind "can" or "can't," we're wondering what you think should be allowed.)
