So, Knit Picks is posting a new, free dishcloth/washcloth pattern every week. The first three have been posted. Here is the original blog post. They are doing both knitting and crochet patterns. I’ll definitely be knitting some of them.
I found this pattern for a Spider-Man baby blanket on Ravelry a few weeks ago. If I weren’t so busy trying to get ready for the big move into a house and doing most of the temporary overtime they’re offering us at work, I’d probably be looking for yarn for this project. Admittedly, it doesn’t quit fit with the brown and blue I seem to be favoring for the nursery colors, but still! It’s awesome!
The designer, AnneM, looks like she has quite a few really nice non-geek designs under her belt, too.
I need this in my life.
I saw this and immediately thought of a certain boy who is turning four who loves spider-man. So this will be made for his birthday in February.
I love ripple afghans and they are almost always crochet, so I am just over the moon for this.
I love Morehouse Farms because they are extremely creative, very friendly, have great customer service, and their yarn is nummy (and their sales are fantastic).
Here is one more reason to love them. This guy is SO FRICKIN’ CUTE!

This is my next knitting project. I am so excited. I’ve wanted to do a cardigan for myself since I made one for my mom for Christmas last year.
This pattern calls for a yak-bamboo blend, which while I’m sure is beautiful, is crazy expensive for how much you need. I will be using OnLine Linie 5 Corafino in pearl, a kind of off white tan color.

Such a beautiful jumper and the matching gauntlets are so cute too
I really like these, however, they will lead to questions (in my head at least) like: “How many skeins to cover your fat ass?” My head is a very dangerous place.
