Knitter's Review
April 16, 2015
the tag on a skein of Local Color yarn

I first fell in love with Imperial Stock Ranch Yarn back in 2003. It was, and still is, the perfectly spun embodiment of the American west.

Then I discovered a small farm on Washington's Bainbridge Island that has been dyeing this superb yarn using only natural dyestuff that they grow themselves. Let me tell you more about Local Color Fiber Studio.

Coming Up
Busy weekend ahead! I counted no fewer than 21 events taking place across North America, from the Shepherd's Extravaganza in in Puyallup, Washington, to the Denmark Sheepfest in Denmark, Maine. The following weekend, the fiber festival season kicks off in earnest with the 106th annual Connecticut Sheep, Wool, and Fiber Festival in Vernon, Connecticut. Find more fun things to do in our online calendar of events.

In the Forums: Hand Health
A very interesting conversation has been taking place in the Knitter's Review Forums over the past few months. It's all about hand health, and what you do to keep your hands in top knitting condition. I'd love your input.

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

We'll talk again in two weeks!
