WWW: Knitted chairs, baby rhinos in blankets and the TCM Knitting Club

IKEA launches a knitted chair. It’s hard to tell precisely what the fabric looks like from the photos, but I’m rather amused by the thought that I could have a knitted chair for knitting in.


And this week’s adorable-baby-animal-wrapped-in-handknits is a Rhino!

Although this horse is pretty fetching in his new blanket, too.


As the skies darken and the weather turns grim in the northern hemisphere, I find I’m rather excited about the announcement of Pantone’s colour of the year for 2017: Greenery!


Loved hearing some knitters on this BBC Radio program. It’s a series called The Chain, on the long-running Woman’s Hour program. Women are interviewed, talking about themselves, their work and their inspirations, and nominate the next woman to be interview, specifically a woman who has inspired their success.  Both Kate Davies and Felicity Ford appear, and talk about their yarny careers and work.


Love this: the TCM Knitting Club. I’ve enjoyed following The Nitrate Diva on Twitter for some time. She’s a lover of vintage movies, with an eye for an excellent photo, and a sharp wit. I was excited this week to learn of her new newsletter, highlighting classic movie-themed knits, knitting related anecdotes, and generally yarny fun. What’s not to love?

I rather enjoyed this, part of a meme that’s making its way around social media at the moment.

*Spread the joy!*
