It's Saturday, it's raining, I just ate chorizo and it's time for blog bits.
On the J-Walk Blog, John points us to a blog entry from Google about how they're mowing their lawn with goats. Didn't Rose Kim do the same thing?
I already pointed out that the Yarn Harlot is coming to Austin. Also, she recently had an airport adventure that I think can be blamed on post 9/11 hysteria.
I saw an awesome quilt on Monster Crochet.
Over on Needles and Things, there are some interesting thoughts on Knitters and an explanation of why cold washing a fleece works.
I have to thank SpinalCat for the shout out. She is showing off her new combs.
There's some awesome crochet pr0n over at Attice24. (Isn't there always awesome crochet pr0n on Attic 24?)
My non-knitting post for this week is from Junkfood Science, which talks about how health messages can sometimes hurt children.
On Now Norma Knits, Norma is trying to identify an old Fair Isle sweater.
Wendy Knits is getting her own color in Lorna's Laces Color Commentary series, WendyKnits Sunrise.
Also, I found two contests in the blogosphere this week:
First, Knitgrrl tells us about a contest for 1,000 Fabulous Knit Hats.
Finally, the Berroco Design Studio Blog talks about blocking and gives away a a blocking kit.
