|We have an unusually high number of newcomers this week, and I'd like to welcome you all to our family. In honor of your arrival, I thought it appropriate to go over a few housekeeping items.|

Generally you won't want to keep your email address as your username, so after you log in to the forums for the first time, just click on the "My Profile" link to change it.
Forum groupies may notice a few changes this week too. To keep things fresh, I've shuffled the topics and added a new folder specifically for event discussions.
New This Week
There's no denying the time and patience it takes to knit fine lace. Investing in good materials can make the process much more pleasurable. I review an heirloom-quality lace yarn, Helen's Lace, from Lorna's Laces.
Speaking of pleasurable experiences, read about a recent visit to Adventures in Knitting, the oldest yarn shop on Cape Cod.
In the Forums
Too often we knit more for others than for ourselves. Why is this?
