Knitter's Review
January 29, 2009
Possum yarn

Earlier this week it was -15 degrees. Today we're being pelted with ice and snow. Winter is not being easy this year.

My plan of attack? Wear the warmest fibers I can find. That would be cashmere, qiviut, and—conscience permitting—the extremely insulating fibers of a marsupial pest from New Zealand. I'm talking Possum, and that's where we go this week.

It's almost the end of January. How are those New Years resolutions holding up?

As always, I thank you for your readership and your support.

Happy knitting, and I'll see you in the Forums!
