Thanks this week to Ardmore, Pennsylvania writer, Marian Birkeland, for her wonderful (perfect for Mother’s Day) essay, and to reader, Heather Ordover, whose dulcet tones can be heard on Craftlit:a podcast for crafters.
It’s time again for Eurovision! Learn more about it, then vote with me (if you’re in Europe) for Serbia to win!* Check out Turkey’s answer to George Michael, and Switzerland’s DJ Bobo, whose single Vampires Are Alive did not, sad to say, make it into the final. I think they were trying too hard to be Lordi.
Not officially “open for business” yet, but do check out Ravelry, the new home for knitters on the web.
I am always happy to pass along information on charitable knitting projects, and few have touched my heart like this one. I am Casting on for Kenya, and would love for you to join me in sending knitted love to children living with HIV/AIDS in Africa.
Visit lovely Hay-on-Wye for great used books, knitting and otherwise.
As promised a picture of the Sunrise Pullover, in progress. The finished sweater will appear in my new blog next week. When it’s ready, there will be a link in the sidebar.
[Edited: Now Serving! Tasty knitting exploits, on a bed of social commentary, garnished with lime wedges.]
Thank you, my knitsibs, for listening.
