If you are looking for a knitting gift for your wife, mother, husband, good friend, or good friend who's a knitting buddy, too, Ann Hood's new anthology of knitting stories, life intertwined while knitting, is one of the best gifts. "Knitting Pearls: Writers Writing about Knitting." Just one of many gifts for people who enjoy crafting and supporting handmade artists.

A little late to the post for this Veterans Day, but the need continues long after the celebration to honor present and past vets ends. Late last night Classic Elite Yarns tweeted and jarred my memory about charity hats for soldiers. There is a continuing need for warm hats for our US troops and hat patterns are readily available to crochet and knit in the round or on straight needles. Wool or natural fiber, alpaca and merino, only for overseas troops, please. And Warmth for Warriors wants you to include a tag with your email address and yarn content. Visit here for more info.
