Bits n Bobs n Links n Fobs

Author Jo Bourne talks about knitting in history.

Where would you like to be? I'd like to spend some time - a lot of time - on Shetland, especially during wool week. A bookstore that sells wool? I could own that!

Knit Matroyska dolls! Adorable!

Also, for kids, a gorgeous book and a leaf-blanket.

As for real projects, I've finished a hat and am working on a blanket as well. I've also gotten half way on my first ever Fair Isle sweater. Photos coming!

What are you crafting?
