The Encounter begins!!! Meanwhile, back at the ranch...it's raining. And... tornado...ing? How does one say that? We here are unused to your strange terminology and bizarre windy ways. Some links: Great TechKnitting blog post with links to lots of great and very smart ideas (expensive sock yarn etc); the latest TwistCollective Winter 2009 issue; PopKnits Vintage Knitting Redux with this thick slipper sock; a very useful (and comprehensive) no-purl garter stitch in the round tutorial; a link to the Antique Pattern Library; Craftzine article on how Emboriderer Jenny Hart organizes her work room; FiberRepublic--a EWE-topia of all things knitterly (get it? I didn't make it up--it's hers); some pretty patterns here in the Petite Purls Winter Issue. And finally: How do we love thee, Big Bang Theory!!!! Go Flatland! Karen in Surrey BC: says to checkout the “excellent film version of this story from 1961 called The Innocents with Deborah Kerr.” (Warning: SCARY!) And I blew it and owe an apology to Groucho. He’s the one who said, “I wouldn’t join any club that would have me as a member” was Groucho. And Shannon filled me in on another of his zingers for Flatland — Women should be obscene and not heard. 
Heh. Don’t forget the January Incentive book: Enchanted Adornments! Book talk begins at: 22:30 Listen to 156 audio Book audio by Anita! Here’s your new pattern!
