Knitter's Review

What inspires you? For me, it's what I see, smell, taste, touch, and hear all around me. I also love knowing what inspires other people. There's nothing like seeing the world through someone else's eyes to give you new inspiration and perspective for the coming year.

Jane Brocket is one of my favorite sources of inspiration. Her playground is the British blog Yarnstorm, in which she reflects on everything from literature to gumdrops, daffodils, Paris, and, as the blog's name suggests, yarn.

She celebrated these same themes in her book The Gentle Art of Domesticity, and I escape into it this week.

Hooray for Heifer
Our year-end Heifer International fundraiser is off to an exceptional start. My thanks to all those who have stepped forward and contributed to this noble cause. We still have time if you'd like to contribute too. Thank you!

In the Forum: Warm Wrists
What yarn would you recommend for a set of wrist warmers? It needs to be warm and easy to work. Any ideas?

Please note that there will be no newsletter next week as I take time off to celebrate Christmas with my family. As always, I truly thank you for your readership and your support.

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