Knitter's Review

Kozmos and a button from my great grandmother's collection

Alchemy Yarns Kozmos was the most exciting new yarn on the TNNA floor in January. It was striking, tactile, and different. Kozmos is finally in yarn stores, so let's give it a proper swatching.

This Weekend in Indiana
The Jay County Fairgrounds in Portland, Indiana, hosts the Fiber Fest and Spin In this Thursday through Saturday. A marketplace is open on Friday and Saturday, and a benefit soup supper will take place Friday evening to benefit the Helping Hands Food Bank. You may even still be able to snag a spot in one of the various classes covering knitting, spinning, felting, rug hooking, and quilting.
