Knitter's Review
October 26, 2006

I have a soft spot in my heart for books written by yarn store owners. Not only do they tend to feature technically rock-solid patterns, but they also manage to bring alive the spirit of their community—making the book part pattern collection, part armchair travel book.

This week we travel from classic New England to sunny Southern California to compare two such books from two distinctly different yarn stores: Northampton Wools and Knit Café.

Featured Event
If last week's New York State Sheep and Wool Festival was too crowded for you, consider journeying to western Massachusetts for the FiberTwist of Franklin County, which takes place Saturday, October 28th. The event features a market in Deerfield as well as tours of 7 area farms.

After a brief hiatus, I'm excited to announce that the Knitter's Review Webring is back, and with a new manager at the helm. If you have a blog or Web site and would like to join the ring, read this thread for details.

Ever wonder what could happen if you got a little too obsessed with your knitting? Check out this animated clip I found on YouTube.

As always, I thank you for your readership and your support.

Happy knitting, and I'll see you in the forums!
