WWW: Why is Apple so freaking dumb; 10,000 new knitters!; time to get the tits out

so much cute!

I’ve got some wonderful photos from the very recent TNNA trade show to share with you. Of course, Apple keeps moving where they let us store our photos every time they do an operating system update (grrr) and I’m having a heck of a time consolidating them all. As soon as I get this octopus handled, I’ll post a link on the blog!


10,000 New Knitters, a movement by Skacel

Meanwhile, Skacel is very NOT dumb. They are clever. They’ve launched the 10,000 New Knitters drive, providing free kits of needles and yarn to LYSs (and those of us who can do) so we can teach others how to.

Go forth and make new knitters! (And when you do, tell your new knitter about the Knitty Library, where they’ll find 15+ years of free patterns that don’t suck.)


Sciency knitters will love this: A new model predicts how each stitch in a knitted fabric will respond to a stretching force. Physics + knitting! Wooo!


From Countess Ablaze, we have the Tits Out Collective, her response to a plagiarism of a popular charity colourway (it’s a gorgeous pink/purple/orange concoction). It’s a charitable movement, and a reminder that all of the people in this world of knitting need to make a living. It’s also a good excuse to buy a skein or two of some gorgeous yarn.
