Knitter's Review
April 5, 2012
Qiviut and forsythia

No matter how much we love knitting—and we can all agree we love it a lot—sometimes our needles fall silent.

Maybe a project has bogged us down, or maybe life got in the way. We miss our knitting mojo and wonder if we'll ever get it back.

I say yes, absolutely. To help kick-start your creativity and keep it healthy, I've put together 10 tips for staying inspired and overcoming knitter's block.

Next Week in Los Angeles
The very first-annual Yarn Crawl LA County takes place next week from Thursday April 12 to Sunday the 15th. Dozens of yarn stores are taking part across LA County, from Santa Monica and Santa Clarita to Long Beach and Claremont.

In the Forums: Loose Purls
For years Consuelo has heard people say that you can have a different tension when you knit than when you purl, but she thought it was just a myth. Recently she re-checked her knitting and lo, the purl stitches were looser than the knits. What about you? Is your stockinette even from row to row, or does one side tend to have longer stitches than the other?
