Knitter's Review
February 14, 2008
Brushed mohair and silk by the lake

How many of our favorite gadgets are also the simplest? I'm thinking of the humble paper clip, the stretchy rubber band.

This week we add another gadget to the list. It's called the Pattern Tamer, and it was created by a working mother of three who was tired of losing her place in her knitting patterns. Instead of using sticky notes or clumsy clipboards, she turned to simple magnetic strips for help.

In the Forum: Winding By Hand
Ball winders do a fast and efficient job of winding our yarn, but some knitters still prefer to wind their yarn by hand. Where do you stand on the issue?

This Weekend in Washington
The Madrona Fiber Arts Winter Retreat takes place this weekend from Thursday to Sunday at the Hotel Murano in Tacoma, Washington. Madrona is best known for its fantastic workshops, the registration for which is, alas, now closed. But you can still pick up on the Madrona vibe by visiting the marketplace, which is open and free to the public all four days of the retreat.

As always, thank you for your readership and your support.

Happy knitting, and I'll see you in the Forums!
Clara Parkes
