To be honest, this never bothered me until I got my hands on Cat Bordi's book, "Socks Soar on Two Circular Needles." For a small book, it certainly packs a wallop. Read on to learn more.
I received several emails this week from readers wanting to know about the more general, knitting-related writing world.
Knitting magazines may only assign one or two non-pattern-specific articles per issue, and competition is steep. Why not explore the book publishing market instead? I'll show you how.
In the Forums
Ever wonder if you might be standing behind another Knitter's
Review reader in the supermarket without knowing it? I've
expanded the "Profile" area so you can include more specifics
about where you live.
Once you do this, you can then click on
the new "Members" link in the upper right-hand corner and
easily spot others who live nearby.
