Knitter's Review
August 7, 2008
della q and hollyhocks

Do knitters have a secret handshake, some discreet way that we recognize each another out in public? Unless we happen to be knitting or wearing a sign that says "I knit," probably not.

But this week I show you a bag that can act as a knitter's secret handshake. To the uninitiated, it looks like an everyday messenger bag. But anybody familiar with knitting bags will spot the Della Q fabric used on the flap and guess that its owner is likely a knitter. Meet your new secret handshake, the Molly messenger bag.

In the Forum: Knitter's Wrist?
One of our Forum members is experiencing quite a bit of pain in her wrist every time she knits. Her question: Is there such a thing as "knitter's wrist," and, if so, do you have any ideas that may help her feel better?
