Which Ewe Are You?

posted on June 2, 2009

Wool is the most popular yarn around. According to passionate wool expert Clara Parkes, more than 200 distinct sheep breeds exist today, each with their own traits and their own stories. In The Knitter’s Book of Wool, Clara translates the vast world of sheep and their wool into the language and context of knitting - and shows you how knowing the distinct personalities of wool fibers ahead of time will help you create a happy marriage between yarn and project.

So…wondering which ewe you are?

Look out for Clara’s new book!

coming this fall 2009!

I'm not any kind of ewe, I'm a ram. Once again male knitters are left out. Not surprising given the male-unfriendly atmosphere at KR.

Dang it - another book I have to buy. I loved Clara's other book (Knitter's Book of Yarn of course)and was happily surprised with the really great projects it included. I am looking forward to this book. :)
