|Four years ago this week I sent out the first issue of Knitter's Review to a few dozen adventurous knitters. Today, some 200 issues later, we're nearing the 20,000 subscriber mark, and our forums have almost 30,000 members.|
I am humbled by our remarkable growth, and I am excited to continue the fifth year of our journey together.
Although the love of knitting remains as strong as ever, we have seen some changes over the past four years, especially in the realm of technology. Today nearly every major knitting store and organization has an online presence, as do many knitters. And another form of technology is being harnessed for knitters: interactive DVDs.
This week, we face technology head-on with a review of a new interactive DVD entitled The Art of Knitting.

Fall Retreat Update
The third-annual Knitter's Review Retreat will take place November 5-7 in Syria, Virginia. Although the weekend spots are now booked, we do have a waiting list for anybody interested, and there's still room for Saturday visitors, so learn more and register to join us.
Fall is the time students hit the books. There's no reason we can't too! That's why at the end of this month one subscriber will win a $50 gift certificate to Amazon.com. Simply stay subscribed and you could be picked.
As always, I thank you for your readership and your support. Happy knitting, and I'll see you in the forums.
