Knitter's Review

Robusta and a painted perfume bottle

Step into a Briar Rose Fibers booth at a fiber festival and you'll likely encounter a crush of people with blissed-out expressions, all holding enormous hanks of yarn in their arms. Inevitably they start hugging the yarn and talking to it, which is not hard to do when each skein is the size of a baby.

That's how I met this week's yarn, fittingly called Robusta.

This Weekend in Maryland
The summer fiber festival season begins in earnest this weekend with the venerable Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival returning to the Howard County Fairgrounds in West Friendship, Maryland. I'll be there on Sunday from 10am to 2pm signing books at the Information Tent.

In the Forums: Battling Boredom
Grand-moogi's daughter recently finished a tunic that she'd been working on for quite a while. By the time she finally finished, she was sick of it. Has this ever happened to you?
