WWW for March 18, 2009

Happy March! Let's get to it!

This is the Year of Natural Fibers. Get more information on special events.

Start your own Longest Scarf with a team of five or more knitters. Imagine the possiblities! Read more about why you'd want to do such a thing at the link above.

All of this is their way to help raise $250,000 to create the largest flock of fiber animals in the world along with Heifer International.

Practice your crochet and recycle worn-out fabric...make a bowl!

Not into crochet? Here's something you and the kids can do together: a different kind of yarn bowl!

Super cool do-it-yourself buttons...for your next cardi, maybe?

Save time! Learn the super-efficient Norwegian Purl. No more moving the yarn in front of the needle!

Start early for next year and knit yourself a shamrock hat!

Want to work attached iCord? It looks really great as a finished edge. Here you go!

For our lucky readers in the UK, mark your calendars for Woolfest 2009! This year's event will be held on Friday 26th + Saturday 27th June 2009 at Mitchells Lakeland Livestock Centre, Cockermouth, Cumbria.

For those of us near the east coast of the US, we have Maryland Sheep & Wool to look forward to! May 2-3, 2009, at the Howard County Fairgrounds, West Friendship, MD.

Knitty's editor, Amy, will be there this year for the first time!

See you next time!
