Knitter's Review

Can you knit and read at the same time? Some people can, others (myself included) can't. I have to stop knitting if I want to read a good book. And summer is book season.

Here's a solution: Three great summer books, all of which have knitting as their central theme.

Surfing Sheep?
In the "now I've seen everything" category, I bring you a video of a sheep that has been trained to surf. What breed could it be. A Finn, perhaps?

Another Festive Weekend
I've counted 10 great fiber festivals taking place across the country this weekend—from Rhode Island to Michigan, Arizona, Vermont, Ohio, Idaho, and Kentucky, to name just a few. For dates, locations, and links for details, visit the Knitter's Review Events Calendar.

In the Forum: P2TogTBL Angst
Among the more demanding things a knitter can do is purl two stitches together through their back loops. Is there an easier way to do it? Why yes. Fran tells us how.
