Apparently sheep can swim! It’s an old story, but I hadn’t seen it before.
True: 21 Struggles Every Knitter Faces. #22: reading cute lists on the Internet when I was supposed to be knitting?
Love this! On the Glo: a Kickstarter for a line of handknit accessories. Two things make this project great: the accessories are all worked with reflective yarn – they’re designed as a safety accessory for kids, runners, cyclists, anyone who might be out in the dark. And they’re made by a group of knitters in rural Philippines. These women belong to a traditional community of farmers, whose economy is endangered by foreign commercial competition. You might remember the Ricefield Collective, another knitting-related Kickstarter a few years ago. This project picks up where that left off.
KnitNerdLab Lindsay alerts us to the existence of a knitting-themed reality TV show from Denmark: The Great Knit Off. It may or may not be great TV, as our Danish TV expert reports
Have now watched the first episode of The Great Danish Knit Off. It’s both terrible TV and perfect knitting entertainment. @kateatherley

but I’m just happy it exists! Apparently, some parts are a bit sweary and possibly NSFW. The full series can be found here.
