Diagnosis: Vogue Knitting Live Vertigo

Dear Ann, Hey! I just learned that my very own LYS was featured in the New York Times. A fun story about learning to knit from Maxine Levinson, Knitty City’s teacher-in-residence, complete with slide show, complete with Lenny the Knitty City Dog. Happy Monday! Contest winner announcement soon! Love, Kay P.S. You know how I love the public teevee, but why do we have to endure so much quackery and decrepit doo-wopping during fundraising...
