Knitter's Review
September 25, 2003

wildflower with handspun angoraThree years ago this month I sent out the first issue of Knitter's Review to some 50 adventurous knitters. More than 150 newsletters later, with hundreds of yarn reviews, how-tos, book reviews, and shop profiles under our belt, aided by forums, the boutique, and the now-yearly retreat, we have just reached another milestone.

Earlier this week, our 14,000th newsletter subscriber joined us. This growth is exciting, and our mission remains the same: To provide quality information that helps knitters make informed buying decisions and ultimately have a more fulfilling lifelong knitting experience.

Thank you for your readership. Here's to another three years together!

In the Boutique: Calendars
It's time to start thinking about 2004. What better way than with the Knitter's Review 2004 Year in Yarn calendar?

Also, if you'd rather look before you buy, here's a list of shops that carry KR products.

In the Forums: Successful Substitutions
Is there a general formula for substituting a yarn of a different gauge in a pattern?

Food, fiber, and friendship are all in store during the second-annual Knitter's Review Retreat this November. Although the overnight portion is sold out, you can still join us on November 8 for the Saturday workshop. Stay for dinner and enjoy an evening of spinning and knitting by the large stone fireplace in our meeting room!
