… around the web

Occasionally I gather links of interest together for one post instead of just sharing on social media. Here are a few that recently caught my attention.

General Interest

It’s time! Tickets for the 2016 New York Sheep & Wool Festival are now on sale! It’s October 15 & 16th. If that alone weren’t enough, RSVP Now for a customer appreciation party with Cooperative Press!

If you are lucky enough to find yourself in Chicago on Saturday September 10th, Lorna’s Laces is having a Mill End Sale! They’ll be open from 10-2 CDT (at 4229 N Honore St # 9, Chicago, IL 60613) during the Ravenswood Art Walk.

Brooklyn has a new yarnstore! It’s called Woolyn and is at 105 Atlantic Ave (between Henry & Hicks Streets), in other words, a block from the entrance to Brooklyn Bridge Park. I’m trying not to take it personally how exciting Brooklyn has become since we left and moved to Westchester 7 years ago.

Miriam Felton has launched a new project — the Construction Papers. A zine for makers?! Yes!!


I love maths and knitting maths make my heart sing. Stephanie of Space Cadet will teach you about the The Rule of Thirds.


Are you looking for some new crochet stitches? Beth Graham has a great craftsy class, Fun & Fantastic Textured Crochet Stitches.

Which is great because then Edie Eckman can help you turn those designs into patterns with her Real-Time Online Crochet Pattern Writing Workshop.


Are you ready for Spinzilla? It’s gasp, just over a month away, October 3-9, 2016! If that doesn’t make you feel as if the year has flown by, registration opens September 1st! Remember your registration helps to support NAMP, Needle Arts Mentoring Program!


I know it’s now last minute (I kept meaning to share), but perhaps you want to join Liz Gipson in a Doubleweave Throw Weave-Along?
