Knitter's Review
April 3, 2008
bird's eye view of vintage knitting needles in a jar

It's pretty clear from last week's poll that the majority of you prefer circular needles over straights. And I respect that.

But before we leave the straight and narrow, I have one more set of straights to show you. Signature Needles are the polar opposite of the hand-turned needles we looked at last week. In fact, the only thing they have in common is that they were both made in the U.S.A.

In the Boutique: Shirts on Sale
Many many moons ago, back before Cafe Press roamed the land, we offered our own knitting-themed T-shirts in the Knitter's Review Boutique. That era is coming to an end, and I've put all our existing shirts on sale. To quote my grandma, "Once they're gone, they're gone."

In the Forum: Dream Storage?
This week we're talking about what our dream yarn storage setup would look like. Perhaps a cedar walk-in studio? Share your dreams.
