Knitter's Review
May 19, 2011
grateful garter

Elizabeth Zimmermann has a new book of knitting designs, gorgeous watercolors, and excerpts from her journals.

How is this possible if she passed away in 1999? Simple: She left behind a lifetime of notes and ideas that live on in the capable hands of her family. Meet Elizabeth's long-awaited garter-stitch opus, Knit One Knit All.

This Weekend
We have a busy weekend ahead. I counted no fewer than 15 fiber festivals and fairs taking place across the country. From Rhode Island to Indiana, Wisconsin to Pennsylvania, Vermont to Wyoming and beyond. Check out the calendar, go out, and enjoy.

In the Forum: Cursed Yarns
Ceil knit a pair of socks out a yarn that comes in gorgeous colorways—and yet she has since vowed never, ever to use that yarn again. What happened, and do you have similar sock horror stories?
