I think I might start doing this weekend-ready post of further reading. There’s a lot of fun knitting stuff going on out there and not enough time to write about it all.

Here are a few links and things that I’m thinking about.

>> Pictured above is my pattern obsession of the week. Bristol Ivy’s Vienne in Quince and Co Chickadee. I’m not a shawl person but I absolutely love the colors and the interesting construction on this!

>> According to Science! this is the fluffiest angora rabbit in the world.

>> I’ve recently fallen for BFL yarn. I’m not terribly familiar with it as opposed to other breeds but this is a great primer on BFL versus Merino!

>> Well, it looks like Fred Perry has made some changes to their beautiful/disappointing “patterns.” And by changes I mean taken the pattern page off of their site (you can still access them if you have a direct link). I feel it’s my duty as a blogger to cover the topic but I think everyone’s said what needs to be said. All I can add is that it’s amazing how intimidating pissed off knitters can be. There are plenty of other vintage-style patterns out there already so fret not, dear knitter!

>> I love drawing out colorwork charts and writing notes in my sketchbook. I’ve been debating about whether or not to switch to a grid sketchbook (I’ve been using blank ones for years now). Seeing these gorgeous Doane Paper grid notebooks at Fringe Supply Co. has me ready to make the change!

Anyway, lots of knitting to get to this weekend! And possibly even some sewing! What will you be making this weekend?
