This week Karen’s fighting off a cold as she writes this up, so it’s going to be short and sweet.
There’s new projects (Maggie)! And not-so-new projects (Karen)! And a mini-movie review!
In Geek Squee, there’s a release date for the next Harry Dresden book! And a study saying Gen Y is taking over book buying! And no more sales of spells, prayers, potions, etc. on eBay! And dinosaurs in Australia! And an adorable story for the cat lovers! And tangents about smut, a knitting webcomic we love and knitting Avengers, as this is us we’re talking about.
We’re doing another contest this week! Comment at the blog or in this episode’s thread in our Ravelry group before Sept. 21st with something knitty that you’ve discovered this year for the chance to win a prize.
