In the past few years, though, I have become interested.  I get great enjoyment out of being able to create what feels like something from nothing, the feel of the fibers in my hands, the warmth of the end products.  So once again I have joined my mother in the fiber arts.  She is always sharing great resources with me, and I had one I’d like to share as well.  Knitter’s review is a wonderful weekly knitting newsletter that I highly recommend.  It includes reviews of books and yarns, explanations of knitting tools, and posting of knitting events.  If only I had more time to knit…
