Knitter's Review
March 29, 2012
Swatching Tahki Donegal Tweed

The food world has its notion of "terroir." Close your eyes and you can pick up hints of a distinct geography, soil, water, air, you name it, in every sip of wine, every nibble of cheese.

I like to think that yarn, too, has terroir. Tahki's Donegal Tweed is still spun in the county for which it was named in Ireland, and this week I show what you'll find when you cast on and start knitting with it.

This Week in Texas
This Friday through Sunday, join JC Briar, Lily Chin, Darla Fanton, Abby Franquemont, and more top teachers at the Grapevine Convention Center in Grapevine, Texas, for DFW Fiberfest 2012. There'll be workshops, a vendor area, and a Friday-night talk by Mary-Heather and Sarah from Ravelry.

In the Forums: Happy Meetings
Robinstephanie was just going about another hectic day when someone stopped and asked if she knit what she was wearing. Questions led to more questions, and soon she and this complete stranger had bonded over the simple act of knitting. The rest of the day, she had a smile on her face. Has this happened to you?
