Knitter's Review

a rose and some Kidsilk Creation

Ahhhhhh, Rowan Kidsilk Haze. Who can resist its frothy super kid mohair and lustrous silky halo?

Sometimes we don't have the time for the type of lace-weight creation Kidsilk Haze invites. Just in time for the holiday season, Rowan has created a limited-edition version of Kidsilk Haze that whips itself up into a curly scarf in no time flat. Meet Kidsilk Creation.

This Weekend
For those who can't join us at this year's Knitter's Review Retreat, I'll be tweeting live updates throughout the weekend using the #krr hashtag if you'd like to follow along.

Canandaigua isn't the only town that will be humming with knitters this weekend. On Saturday and Sunday, the Hotel Coolidge in White River Junction, Vermont, hosts the Green Mountain Fiber Festival. And, in New Holland, Pennsylvania, the Small Alpaca Farms of the Northeast Association puts on its annual fiber festival at the Liberty Fire Company.

In the Forums: Favorite Heels?
One of the major areas where socks can differ is in their heel construction. Some are made from short rows, others use a flap and gusset or some other clever combination of stitches. How do you like your heels?
