~ Did you know that knitting was used as code in WWII?  What's the connection between the Burying in Woollen Acts and the rise in newspaper circulation?  You can read all about it and other interesting bits of knitting history here.    

~ The Squam Retreat is happening this week.  On Saturday there's the Ravelry REVELRY and a marketplace.  These events are free and open to the public.  If you're in the area, stop by and enjoy the creativity and inspiration of Squam.
