Knitting in the News!
Our local paper had an article about the Knitting World Cup on the front page of the entertainment section! They seem to have done a lot of knitting articles lately. Here it is!

Now only if I could get them to do a story on the non-profit I work for. Perhaps we need to tie it into knitting somehow. :thinking:

At least this one didn't call us all "Couch Potatoes," like one of the stories about the Knitting Olympics!

Um, they kind of made it sound like there's only one Texan in the World Cup, and I would imagine there's more.

Typically journalism these days, it was a very fluffy piece.

I do think it's cool they had the article!
