I’m obsessing over this video by artists Lernert & Sander of designer sweaters being unraveled. I’ve read some people describe it as maddening and unsettling but to me it is incredibly delicious and meditative. Frogging a piece can be just awful but watching stitches come undone can be just as fascinating as it is to see them created.

>> Everyone’s been sharing this article so I guess I ought to as well. In case you were unaware, knitting is good for you. It’s meditative and relaxing. Imagine that!

>> I’m not even sure what to say about this Captions for Models in Knitting Catalogues. So weird. Definitely funny.

>> Franklin Habit’s piece about his first encounter with needlecraft brought me to tears. Really beautiful. Please send tissues.

>> I have my eye on Stashbot this week. I might wait for the ebook version so I can carry it around on my phone for impulse yarn purchases. I am definitely afraid of how it will help to enhance my stash. Not that that’s every stopped me.

>>  Here is my high school’s Handicraft and Knitting Club, class of 1942. (Thanks, Dad!)

What are you knitting up this weekend? How do you like that unravelling video?
