The life of a traveling, reading, writing, spining and knitting shepherdess.

These are some links about the disaster in Japan.  I know as knitters and crocheters, our first inclination is to pick-up the needles or hook and send some woolly love.  Here’s why you shouldn’t and what you would be better off doing.

Why you shouldn’t be knitting and crocheting things to be sent to Japan.

How you should be sending your money there (and other places as well).

A great designer has the right idea for Japan.


We still have a Royal Wedding coming up here.

The bookish knitting souvenir of the impending Royal Wedding.

The yarnish knitting souvenir of the nuptials.

If you have an idea for a pattern to celebrate here’s the competition for you!


Some other interesting links:

A raffle for a chance to own the original Great American Afghan.

A British sock club where you get Wollmeise as one of the yarns!!! (And I think it may also have some yarn from my FAVORITE indie dyer, Jon from Easyknits!)
