This week, once we get past some slightly off-topic talking about the weather, Maggie is attempting to be monogamous (we’ll see how long that lasts, considering she’s looking for projects that will use her sock yarn ends) and has finished a project but perhaps not the way she wanted it to be. Meanwhile, Karen has a couple finished projects (because she does actually finish things sometimes) and is planning on starting another, though what that might be might change a few times.
In Geek Squee, a couple TV shows that we are anxiously anticipating have started filming or are at least setting up some familiar-looking sets. Bonus: Maggie found some adorable sweatery cookies for when one of those shows airs! There’s also some news about the upcoming Star Wars movie, probably the best TARDIS cosplay we’ve seen yet (and yes, it’s bigger on the inside), a commemorative coin that Doctor Who fans might be interested in, and a piece of artwork that really has knitting on the brain (*rimshot*)!
In Cravings, Covets and Crushes, there’s a sweater pattern that might be of interest for the guys or those that knit for guys, as well as a seriously epic project Maggie recently discovered and that’s in a book Karen wanted to share: “Knitted Lace: A Collection of Favourite Patterns from Interweave”, edited by Anne Merrow.
