Yarn and pretty stamps? What more could you ask for?

Who doesn't love to get yarn in the mail? Especially when it comes from faraway places in a package with exotic stamps.

This week I got such a package from the Netherlands. It contained two wonderfully crunchy, whole-grain skeins from Romania. They tell a lovely story of childhood, grandparents, and returning to one's roots. Meet Moeke Yarns.

Coming Up
The San Francisco Bay Area is buzzing with knitters this weekend as Stitches West takes place at the Santa Clara Convention Center. More classes have been added, and let's not forget the tantalizing Stitches Market. Meanwhile, across the pond at Farnham Maltings in Surrey, Unravel 2015 unfolds with workshops, talks, and demonstrations. The following weekend, venture Down Under for the 37th annual Bothwell International Highland Spin-In & Fibre Festival in Tasmania. All these and more can be found in our online calendar of events.

In the Forums: Good Groups?
