Knitter's Review
October 22, 2009
a happy sheep gets the attention due

At the New York State Sheep and Wool Festival last weekend, every inch of the Dutchess County Fairgrounds was jammed with sheep and wool paraphernalia from yarn and fiber vendors to sheep farmers, potters, cheese-makers, hat makers, and—lest we forget—purveyors of delicious fried artichokes.

This year I was on the other side of the booth as I signed copies of my new book, The Knitter's Book of Wool, and sent them out into the world. I had just a few brief hours to explore the festival and can show you five special finds that came home with me.

This Weekend in Connecticut
Stitches East is coming to Hartford! I hope you'll join me on Friday, October 23rd, from 2-3pm at the Yarn Barn of Kansas booth (#401), where I'll be signing freshly minted copies of my book. Please come by and say hi.

In the Forum: Better Binding
Jan has an old paperback knitting book that's driving her nuts. No matter what she does, it won't stay open. She's seen books that have been comb-bound at office supply stores, but she wants a true spiral binding. Is it possible? (Hint: Yes!)
