Apparently, Mother Nature has decided that we will go directly from winter to summer… yep, temps in the upper 70’s around here this weekend. But, never fear… winter returns on Monday. Really, I can’t make this stuff up as you can see from my Dark Sky™ forecast…
It looks like I need to pull out some warm weather clothes…pronto!
Friday the Thirteenth should have some unusual links, should it not?
Starting with some motivating links:
Or perhaps we should all do a little Knit Along of Bateaux Mouches from Churchmouse Yarns & Teas…
Báirbre is really lovely as well!
Moving to the What am I getting myself into? links:
You know you might have lost your mind when you are contemplating knitting the Gansey sweater that Daniel Day-Lewis is wearing….
Svetlana Gordon always has me saying wow, but then I see the hashtags… #icord #in-the-round #mosaic #phototutorial
Perle royale might seem like a good idea when you start, but this is lots of knitting and only in French….
Finally, the batshit crazy, you have gone off the deep end and need a knitting intervention links:
Ballerina Tea Cosy (hmmm, maybe Genevieve needs one of these for her IKEA kitchen…)
Clever felt and leaf One case where free is not necessarily good or using the adjective clever make it so…
Or Textured Dresses with this bit of instruction: “The PDF pattern has 26 pages including an individual page for each of the 19 skirt designs, an index indicating level of difficulty and 4 pages detailing the knitted bodice with plenty of step-by-step pictures.” I mean really, just commit me already!
Sock Monkey Golf Club Covers? Ummm….no, just no.
Baby Cat with Baby Carriage… Craziest part? It’s not free.
Raccoon Slippers…for adults no less!
At Your Service Knit Cloth… in Sugar’n Cream and seed stitch. And, yes, I am strongly considering them… Oy vey, send help, would you?
Why jumbo yarn should never be used to knit a sweater…
For the “I never knit a gauge swatch knitter” (I think the designer did but I have no clue why, lol)
The Penultimate Boyfriend Sweater – knit this for the one you want to get away…
That is all I have for the week, Gentle Reader! FriYAY the Thirteenth might be a double martini happy hour, non? Have a good weekend, see you back here on Monday!
P.S. All these links were recently uploaded to Ravelry! That’s right, for some designers, it is always Friday the Thirteenth!
P.P.S. I have no idea what those darling little yellow flowers are! We saw them on our walks this week along the pathways.
