New knitters must build their reference library from scratch, which can be a challenge. Many of you have asked me for advice, and this week I give it.
Coming next week: a report from Stitches West and the final installment in our glitter series.

On the Web: Red Cross Retro
During World War I and World War II, the American Red Cross launched nationwide, volunteer-driven knitting campaigns to supply soldiers and civilians with warm clothing. This week I discovered that the Red Cross has made many of the original World War II-era knitting patterns available for free on its Red Cross Museum Web site.
Next week I'll pick one lucky newsletter subscriber to win a dozen long-stemmed roses. Stay subscribed and you could win.
As always, thank you for your readership. Happy knitting, and I'll see you in the forums!
