Poppies are being knit and crocheted to mark and remember the centenary of the end of the First World War. Marloes and St Brides — a community in the Welsh county of Pembrokeshire, UK — is working to make 2,000 poppies. If you would like your initiative included, please let me know.

In Cleveland, Ohio, Artist Jessica Pinsky turned a a vacant lot into an indigo farm. Learn more about dyeing with natural dyes such as cochineal, fruity color drink powder, or acid dyes at Knitty!

Last week on twitter, Amy shared this hilarious youtube video about learning to knit. Do you remember your first lesson? Creating tutorials isn’t easy … nor is learning always instantaneous! 😉
