Kate, who usually helms What’s What Wednesdays has been felled by the flu. Jillian is stepping in to do a quick update about what caught her eye in the knitting world this week.
Ryan Gosling knows how to knit! Or at least he learned how on the set of one of his movies. Maybe this will make Kate feel better.

Clara Parkes’ Great White Bale adventure has started. I always forget to check the blog and there are already two posts. If you are in the same (forgetful) boat as I am, don’t fret. Clara is working on an email notification system for blog updates. If you’ve signed on to be a Traveler, go read about the start of this unique adventure.
The coziest commercial
Do you remember the gas company ad where the interior of a house was covered in knitting ? Now there’s a peek into how the commercial was made. It’s amazing how many people worked on it.
The coolest flag
Knitty has always had a special love for Wales given that one of our Besties lives there, and it’s the home of Amy and Brenda’s P3 retreats. Now Wales is coming to Toronto. The North American Festival of Wales will be in Toronto August 29-September 1. We’re hoping for some fiber vendors!
If you are interested in attending one of Amy & Brenda’s P3 Retreats there are still a couple slots available for their upcoming Spring retreat in March. Take a look, you know you want to!
