We knitters can be a bit odd about our tools. We'll fiercely pounce on a $.25 box of used aluminum needles at a yard sale. Yet later we'll unblinkingly plunk down $25 for a pair of rosewood DPNs if they're special enough.|
This week I review some needles that definitely are special enough: Lantern Moon single-pointed straight knitting needles from Vietnam.
In the Boutique: Baskets are Back!
Update: We sold out already! More in August...
After a far longer wait than expected, I'm happy to report that we have a new batch of wicker baskets with embroidered lining in stock. Order early, as these seem to fly off the shelves. (Limit two baskets per customer.)
Time for the 2005 Retreat!
Picture yourself sitting by a huge stone fireplace with a group of new friends, swapping stories, knitting, and laughing.
Does this sound like fun? Then join us for the fourth-annual Knitter's Review weekend retreat in Virginia this November. Registration opens today and is expected to fill quickly.
In the Forums: Stash Savvy?
A wise new member asks if you see a yarn you can't live without, and don't have a pattern in mind for it, how many skeins do you buy and why?
