WWW for March 4, 2009

Happy March! Let's get to it!

Admit it: we have all had yarn we wish we could do this to.

Take that, pilly, splitty, full-of-knots yarn!

Knitted Domestic Trophies. Cannot describe. Must see.

Have you seen it? Knitters now have their own Comic book, full of knitting heroes. It even includes a pattern at the end of each issue.

The crazy, tiny gloves designed and knit by Althea Crome for Coraline, the movie? Now you can knit a human-sized pair for your own hands!

Knitters always knew that our hobby kept us sane and mentally sharp...and now the Mayo proves it!

Schacht Spindle Company, maker of such gorgeousness as the Ladybug [my personal wheel], the Matchless and many other spinning and weaving products, is having a contest! Full details here. The prizes are insanely cool.

And finally, take a peek at Lorna's Laces new Ahah yarn. It's designed by Cat Bordhi to be the ultimate colorway to help you see what you're doing as you knit, stitch by stitch. More details on how the stuff works at the link above.

Don't forget...this Sunday, clocks go forward 1 hour. Read more about Daylight Saving Time [no "s" -- who knew?].

Late breaking news!
