The Bride wore Lincoln. That's a new one, but a beautiful one!

Wind-powered knitting art...

Knitpicks Options are now available in clear acrylic!

Do you still have some of your lego collection laying about? If not, I'm sure there is a small child with some of their own who will be more than willing to help you build your very own motorized ball winder!

Lexie Barnes showed off her new bag designs and fabrics and taught willing visitors how to knit at her salon at New York Fashion Week (September 10-17, 2009). Reports say it was a huge success, with lots of visitors of all walks of life -- including models -- getting a taste of why we love the craft so much. Thank you, Lexie!

Here's a great article for yoga for knitters and with holiday knitting getting closer, we're gonna need it!

A neat social knitting art project.

Although the Knitter's Retreat is now full, you can still get on the waiting list!

Go Knit! 2009 has been launched!

Help Seasalt Clothing Company raise funds for The Bumblebee Conservation Trust by knitting scarves that they display in their store window, then later auction off with the proceeds going to the chosen charity. Last year they donated over £3000 for The Cinnamon Trust, a UK charity that assists the elderly and their pets.

That telltale nip is in the air that remindes me of Rhinebeck! Oh, sweet Rhinebeck. I'm having to miss it this year but one day...Oh, yes, I will go back!
