A few interesting finds over the last week or so:
- The bottom has dropped out of the cashmere market, leaving Chinese goat farmers wondering what's going to happen to their herds. Quick! To the yarn store! I knew there must be a good reason I needed some cashmere!
- Twisted yarn store posted this hillarious video tribute to Malabrigo.
- Fuzzy Thoughts (originally Fuzzy Mitten) blog posted this video origin of the blog's first name, a cute Russian cartoon.
- Wollmeise fans are cheering the opening of the first Wollmeise store.
- Berroco has two new booklet patterns that pay homage to brillant minds of the past. The men's book includes Cuvier and Geffroy (prounounced more or less "zhef-wah"). So their early theories of organic change didn't hold up in the 20th century. They were still brillant. The women's book includes Madame Curie and Jane Goodall.
- Remember knit ties? They're back in style! So are knit vests, it seems.
- MochiMochi blog has a tutorial on adding eyes to amigurumi and other knitted/crocheted toys.
- The summer issue of PopKnits is out. Free knitting patterns. It's all good.
- sknitter reports on an adorable knitting font, complete with little sheep.
That should keep y'all busy for a little while.
