Get the Skinny on Knitting with Thin Yarns this Summer! Knitwear designers Laura R. Myers, Laura Grutzeck, and Carol Sulcoski—co-authors of Knit So Fine: Designs with Skinny Yarn--are on a mission to deepen knitters' appreciation for skinny yarns. Bookmark these sites and check back every day for new Q&A and lively yarn discussion with a host of bloggers from all backgrounds, including designers, knitters, crocheters, spinners, and yarn shop owners. They hope readers will post comments about their own experiences working with thin yarns.
The Blog Tour: 14 stops in 14 days, featuring the "Skinny Yarn of the Day" yarn reviews, inside stories, and more! Also check out the knitalong on Blogger.com.
Some of the yarns they'll examine on the tour include: Zitron Trekking XXL, Dale of Norway Svale, Rowan Kidsilk Haze, Rowan 4-Ply Soft, Classic Elite Yarn Wool Bamboo, Koigu Premium Merino, Colinette Tao, and JaggerSpun Zephyr, to name a few.
