We’re back! Not all of us are running at 100%, but we’re back! And we have lots of knitting to catch up on! There’s Christmas knitting finished, unfinished and not attempted, Hobbit socks that are well on the go or nearing completion, and some new projects started. There’s also an update about one of our favourite online knitting comics!
In Geek Squee, we have some encouraging news about the new S.H.I.E.L.D. tv show (and Karen is having ALL THE FEELS) as well as an interview that makes us love Jaime Alexander (Sif from “Thor”) even more. There’s also an amazing scientific development that gets us one step closer to actual robot bodies, news about plans for a colony on Mars, some epically nerdy tweets from a certain fictional starship captain to someone who is actually in space and another sequel in the works for one of Karen’s favourite movies.
In Cravings Covets and Crushes, there’s another purveyor of nerdy yarns, some upcoming colourways from a Nerd Girl dyer, a place to shame your yarn into obedience, and a suggestion for something to keep the Harry Dresden fans going once they’ve finished the latest book.
