Knitter's Review
December 1, 2011
on Canandaigua Lake

Since we last spoke, something pretty wonderful happened. I took a road trip to the Finger Lakes region of New York to join 115 of my favorite knitters for the 10th-annual Knitter's Review Retreat.

We had yarn galore, inspiration as far as the eye could see, chocolate at (almost) every meal. Underlying it all was a sense of connectedness and community I rarely get from the world at large.

I'd love to share it all with you.

This Weekend
This Friday and Saturday, the Hot Springs Convention Center in Hot Springs, Arkansas, hosts the Arkansas Fiberarts Extravaganza. Featuring special guests Annie Modesitt and Brooke Nico, the event includes workshops and a marketplace of more than 25 fiberarts vendors.

Heifer Fundraiser
The arrival of December also marks our 10th year of supporting Heifer International. The organization helps people around the world obtain a sustainable source of food and income. If you find yourself in a position of even modest abundance this year, I encourage you to join me in contributing to this worthy cause.

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

Happy knitting, and I'll see you in the Forums,
Clara Parkes
