Knitter's Review
January 12, 2012
chunky citrus

Last week's hat pattern left me with bulky yarns on the brain, both literally and metaphorically. I've since discovered a plush, spongy knitted-tube yarn from Rowan. Alpaca Chunky is billed as the chunky sibling to Lima. But on closer inspection, I found several reasons why the yarn merits a little respect on its own. Shall we swatch?

This Weekend in New York
The Hilton New York takes on a decidedly yarnier appearance this weekend as Vogue Knitting Live takes place Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. The show features classes galore, many of which still have spots available. There's also a packed marketplace, gala dinner and fashion show hosted by Alice Starmore, and Vickie Howell on tap all weekend at the Beginner Lounge. I hope to see you there.

In the Forums: Stash Storage
Tasanawright lives in a 300-square-foot home that is slowly being taken over by yarn. She needs our organizational help. What's the best way for her to store her stash?
