Knitter's Review
March 13, 2014
Cirrus in a silver bowl

As I write this, the Northeast is being pelted with another snow storm. But have faith. We're already seeing apple blossoms in Oregon, and crocuses along the Chesapeake. The sun is higher in the sky, the birds are going tweet tweet, and it's only a matter of time before winter's back is truly broken for yet another year.

I'm not advocating we put away the woolens quite yet, but we can lighten the fabrics a little. This week I have a fascinating candidate. Imagine the halo of Kidsilk Haze, but do away with the silk binder and the spun construction. Instead, all the fuzz exists within a fine nylon mesh. Berroco Cirrus is an unusual but enticing concoction.

Coming Up
Calling all Tucson knitters! Join me this Friday (March 14th) at KiwiKnitting. My talk starts at 1:30pm, and I'll be there to sign books and fondle yarn until 3pm. See you!

Also this weekend, the Pittsburgh Knit & Crochet Festival celebrates its 10th year; in the Boston area, 11 of the area's finest shops open their doors for the North Shore Yarn Crawl. And in Bellevue, Washington, Vogue Knitting Live Seattle takes place at the Meydenbauer Convention Center.

In the Forums: Clever Bind-Offs
Curious how the three-needle bind-off works? We're sharing links and tips.

As always, I thank you for letting me be a part of your knitting life.

We'll talk again on March 27th!
