Guest: Bruce Weinstein, author of Knits Men Want chats with Kathy. Bruce stresses that if there’s a failure with the sweater, it’s not you! It could be the choices you make for the sweater, but he’s certain it’s a fantastic garment. He says there are things you need to know, like Rule #7: Not all men are worthy of cashmere. Interestingly, Bruce’s other books are cookbooks, and he believes that a knitting book should be no different than a cookbook – patterns (recipes) should be tested and clear. Bruce also points out that many men have multiples of things (like 12 navy sweaters) because that’s what he likes.

Bruce will be at WEBS Thursday, April 26th at 6:00pm-7:30pm. He’ll also be bringing a treat from one of his cookbooks, so you’ll want to come visit with him if you’re close!

He also has a new cookbook coming out soon and a new knitting book headed for shops in December.

Our Next Big Adventure: We recently purchased a new building 6 miles down the road in Easthampton. This location will only be shipping and customer service. The store will not move and this new space will not be open to the public. The back warehouse will still be shoppable, it’s just the behind the scenes portion that’s moving.
