Can we talk about knots for a minute?
Ever since my first pair of colorwork socks fell apart because of a poorly formed knot in the cuff, I've been anti-knot. My opinion has been that no matter how you form them, knots will always find a way to wiggle free and create sad, gaping holes in your beautiful projects.
But the truth is: There's a knot for every occasion, including knitting. I'm going to show you a simple, sturdy, and discreet fisherman's knot that may well transform your relationship with endings and beginnings.
Meanwhile, July 23-27, the summer Knit & Crochet Show and CGOA-TKGA Conference will take place at the Radisson Hotel in Manchester, New Hampshire. The weekend of the 26th-27th in Ampthill, Bedford, in the United Kingdom, the very promising Fibre East takes place at the Redborne Community College. These and hundreds more can be found on our calendar of upcoming events.

As always, I thank you for letting me be a part of your knitting life.
We'll talk again on July 31st!
