Worldwide Knit in Public Day, and Links!

I have a new project!

Top secret for now, but it's nice to be working on something again, even if it's in fits and starts. But it's just in time for Worldwide Knit in Public Day this Saturday!

Meanwhile, some links!

The latest issue of Knitty features Neil Gaiman. Browsing the issue also made me realise I hadn't checked the Knitty blog in a while. They always feature some neat links, and the last few posts were no exception.

I learned about author, knitter, and designer Sylvia Olsen's two month Great Canadian Knitting Tour.

I read about knitters who sit on Iceland's language committee.

I discovered a Scottish museum I'd love to visit, learned about Newfoundland patterns, and discovered that knitting was used by spies in World War I.

Mostly, though, drooling over all the patterns and knitting books featured in this issue of Knitty makes me want to drop everything else and just knit.

What projects are you working on?
