It's World Wide Knit in Public Day!

It's World Wide Knit in Public Day, which is actually a misnomer because it runs from the 11th to the 19th of July. There are scheduled, organized events (which you can find via the link) or you can (like me), just get out there and knit. Whatever you decide to do to celebrate, have fun!

It's also International Yarnbombing Day! If you're a yarnstormer and want to get some credit, check this out! There's some more basic information here, too. You can find some great photos of yarnbombing, too. There's lots of information about yarnstorming on the internet. Just check it out! The photo above is from this site, and there are many more photos.


More knitting content!

If you're looking for some fiberarts books, there's a sale going on for hurt, damaged, and overstock books! It's mostly spinning books, but there may be some others in there.


I've finally gotten to nearly the end of the beautiful Comfort Sock Yarn that is no longer available from Mary Maxim. There is a brand called Comfort Sock Yarn that's available, but it's mostly acrylic, whereas the 15 balls of it that I ordered are 75% superwash wool, and each ball is 100 grams, so you can make 2 socks (a pair!) from one ball and still have just a little bit left if you're making socks for women with size 9 feet (like mine). Actually, I got 12 pairs from 10 balls, and there's still a bit left over for a really neat project I have in mind. I'm not talking about this because it's so unique, and I want to make surprises for some people.

That's some of the yarn with a sock in progress.


The last episode of the Spring season of Doctor Who will be on BBC in America tonight! If you've watched the last two episodes, you know that they ended in a real cliffhanger, so don't miss this one! You can read more about the episode here, but be aware that there are some very mild spoilers. If you think about what happened, what it reveals is just about what you'd expect.

The BBC in America site also says that fen of the Doctor should pay special attention to them on Tuesdays, because they'll be putting on all sorts of Doctor-related stuff then.

Oh, and did I mention that there's a Doctor Who marathon on BBC in America today?

I should have, because I want to go watch it right now.

Have the best weekend ever!
