Blog Bits Saturday

It's Saturday, did you know it's also Sept 22? (More on that later today.)

Knitgrrl announces this year's NaKniSweMo, inspired by NaNoWriMo, and causes me to debate whether to try to write a novel or knit a sweater this November. (And why they pick November for these things.)

Speaking of month-long goals, The Sweet Sheep is going to spin all the yarn for a sweater and knit the sweater in about a month. See some of her progress here.

Also, Needles and Things crocheted an afghan in one sitting.

And Yarn Pirate aims for 31 pairs of baby socks during the month of "Socktober."

Mochimochi has some great pictures of Bob. Also, watch out for Ninjabun.

There's a new sock pattern at the Knitspot.

SpinalCat reports on the LYS's near her new home.

I think Wool2Dye4 read the market correctly. I long for handpaints in larger gauges. (I also believe handpaints are the new eyelash yarns, but in a good way.)

Lady Octavia finishes Marvin.

Titianknitter finishes her Tiffany Mittens and demonstrates an unusual blocking device.

Yarn Harlot visits Los Angeles, Witchita, New Orleans,Houston and Atlanta. Please read her blog on New Orleans!

Grumperina gets Gatorade on her yarn and makes good points on having multiple WIPs.

Knit and Tonic makes some very good points about knittting in public and comments from strangers. Also, she makes a quilt (Psssttt...don't tell her I said this, but if she is seriously going to descend into quilting madeness, she has only scratched the surface. I know, my Mom quilts.)

Wendy Knits finished one pair of socks and starts another, while playing guess that fiber.

Now Norma Knits on "one quality scarf."

Persistent Illusion finishes her socks from Cat Bordhi's new book.

Shut Up I'm Counting has a yarn disaster.

Finally, Empty Nest Knitter has her grand opening today. Details at 11.
