Knitting Along

Well the new site is finally up and running! We're still blocking out a few kinks and expect everything to be beautifully draped and fitting properly in the very near future.

Val is currently at work editing the patterns for the fall issue and I'm beginning to ease into more regular blogging. I've been kept quite busy by new site housekeeping and as a result I've neglected the blog.

I wanted to let everyone know about our partnership with Planet Purl. They have a wonderful site with extensive information about local yarn stores, book reviews, travel blogs by and for knitters and much more. If you like knit alongs you'll be interested to know that they host a fine selection. We have arranged for them to host several projects from our Summer 09 issue. The projects range in both size and level of difficulty, so we hope everyone who wants to knit along will find something they want to knit. If there isn't one for a project you're working on and you'd like to start one you can do that too!

If you're planning a trip to NYC or it's environs over Columbus Day Weekend, Friday October 9th through Monday October 12th, you'll be interested in the NYC Yarn Crawl.
This is a self-guided tour for knitters, crocheters and other fiber artists to the city’s premier yarn shops. With special demonstrations, exhibits, sales and promotions, the crawl promises to be 4 days of shopping, discovery and urban exploration for both local and out-of-town knitters. Six big baskets will be raffled off during the course of the event. Participating stores will be collecting entries from their visitors, the more stores you visit the more chances you have to win! Click here for more information.

And for those of you following the exploits of the Yarnstormers, they're at it again. This time they've woven a web of woe. That's the most adorable hungry spider I've ever seen!
