This week, Karen’s got a mostly-finished project and the same socks she’s been working on for ages. Oh, and another project waiting in the wings. Maggie’s got a bunch of new yarn as somebody got to go to the Knitter’s Frolic in Toronto last weekend. She’s even started a new project, and she’s got a little notebook with some grand ideas. And pictures of a certain knitting blogger/cartoonist/teacher/more in a utilikilt (no, not *those* kinds of pictures).
But it’s not just all Frolic this week! Karen has a movie review for “The Pirates! Band of Misfits” while Maggie’s found some eye makeup perfect for the Avengers opening this weekend. There’s news about another Neil Gaiman book that’s getting the stop-motion animation treatment, an awesome Take Your Kids to Work Day that involved a mock trial in the Hunger Games universe, and an epic university prank for the Doctor Who fans. We’ve also found another purveyor of geeky yarns, and a new online knitting comic strip that we both love to bits.
