Knitter's Review
March 10, 2011
glass needles close and far

I love how adaptable knitting is. We can knit with a pair of sharpened pencils if need be, or we can use needles made from ebony, aluminum, casein, or even the carbon fiber composite used in race cars and fighter jets. Each material makes for a slightly different experience.

This week we look at some circular knitting needles that help you unleash your inner Cinderella. They're made in Oregon by Sheila and Michael Ernst using borosilicate glass, the original material in Pyrex. And yes, you really can knit with them.

This Weekend in Boston
The North Shore Yarn Crawl takes place on Thursday through Sunday. This self-guided LYS open house—with a passport and prizes—takes you through 12 knitting and fiber stores across Boston's North Shore, from Newburyport to Gloucester, Marblehead to Wakefield.

In the Forum: Copycat Purls
Is there such a thing as duplicate purl stitch and, if so, how do you do it?
