September 29, 2005
Five years ago this month—with not much fanfare and a whole lot of hope—I sent out the first Knitter's Review to a few dozen people. My plan was simple. Every week, through sleet and snow and wind and rain, I'd give you interesting, honest, and helpful information.|
Several hundred reviews later, our readership is nearing 26,000, and the reviews keep coming. I am eternally grateful for your readership, your feedback, your encouragement, and above all the trust you place in me.
New This Week: Machine Know-How
The day the first Knitter's Review went out, a large box was gathering dust in my attic. It contained a knitting machine I'd hastily purchased without doing my research—and subsequently repacked in its box and put in storage.
The machine was a failure not because it was a machine, but because I hadn't done my homework ahead of time when shopping for it. To keep you from making the same mistake, I've asked machine-knitting expert Eileen Bator to tell us what every handknitter should know about knitting machines.
