Knitter's Review
February 5, 2009
A special yarn and the lid to my grandma's sugar bowl

Some yarns are simple. The label says "wool" or "cotton" and that's pretty much it.

But this week I present a yarn whose fibers defy easy categorization, each having been carefully manipulated to create a unique result. And one of those fibers comes from just one farm in North America—making this yarn a collector's item before it ever hits your LYS shelves.

Join me for a closer look at the exquisite new lace-weight Paco Vicunas yarn from Louet.

This Weekend in Michigan
On Saturday, February 7th, the third-annual Knit Michigan takes place in Bloomfield Hills. The volunteer-led event is dedicated to raising funds for Michigan cancer organizations through a marketplace, a silent auction, a knit-in and spin-in, and other activities. Perfect for the heart of winter.

As always, I thank you for your readership and your support.

Happy knitting, and I'll see you in the Forums!
