Wrinkle in Time Reissue
I just read that one of my favorite books of all time is being re-issued for its 45th anniversary. Of course, A Wrinkle in Time has been in print continuously as far as I know throughout its 45 year life - and justifiably so. As a kid, I hungrily devoured all of the adventures of the Murray and O'Keefe clan - even such peripheral Murray/O'Keefe books like Dragon in the Waters and The Arm of the Starfish. And I'm in awe of Ms. L'Engle's reach over the decades, inspiring and delighting young readers. It's a wonderful, powerful, and lasting legacy.
In other news, Knitter's Review is doing a review of Punta Del Este's yarn. I was lucky enough to knit with Mericash for a sample for Knitting Etc and I have to second Clara's review - it's a really soft yarn. Knitting with it was *so* enjoyable, that I was a little sad when I cast off that last stitch (a little sick, I know...). I don't really know how it holds up since it was 1) a sample and 2) a baby sweater - which tends to wear differently than larger pieces I think. The fabric almost seemed felted already since it was very soft and singly plied. But it made a very pleasant fabric and the subtle color variations are gorgeous. Lucky Ithacans also have access via Knitting Etc to Punta Del Este's linen, cotton, and wool yarns too.
