Knitting can be a very relaxing hobby that you can enjoy by yourself. It's just as fun when you knit with friends. There is a large community of knitters out there that are just as passionate about the craft as you are; you just need to know where to find them. The STITCHES events are the perfect places to meet knitters and surround yourself with new friends and lots of yarn. It's the perfect atmosphere to mingle with new companies and designers. The Knitting Universe has been putting on four STITCHES events — East, West, Midwest, and South — annually for years. Plus, at every STITCHES event, there's a fashion show. This new eBook, Best of the West STITCHES Show 7 Knit Tops, Free Shawl Patterns and More, Vol. 3, is filled with projects that come straight from the show. Add some new flare to your wardrobe with the amazing patterns in this lovely new collection.
