Knitter's Review
November 19, 2009
Recycled yarn, freshly reskeined and washed

By the time you read this, I'll be in Williamstown, Massachusetts, getting ready to welcome the first arrivals to this year's Knitter's Review Retreat. One of my favorite retreat traditions is the stash lounge. Picture a whole room dedicated to yarns we no longer want—but that someone else does.

Skeined yarns tend to go quickly. But the yarns that have already been knit, frogged, and rewound? Not so much. Which is sad, since a few simple steps can transform those yarns into gorgeous skeins worthy of any LYS. This week I show how you can breathe new life into those abandoned skeins.

This Weekend in Vermont
New Englanders can get their fiber fix this weekend. Head up to Brattleboro, Vermont, this Saturday for the fifth-annual Southern Vermont Fiber Event. You'll find spinning demonstrations and vendors offering all sorts of fiber-related items, from raw materials to finished goods.

In the Forum: Knitting on the Road
This week we're talking about our favorite take-along travel projects. Do you bring entire garments, or do you opt for smaller projects from the get-go?
