Around the Yarniverse: Links of Interest to Knitting & Crocheting Fanatics

I’m still struggling with knitting 101, so while I work out my issues, here’s a great collection of fun posts from the last week or so.

Fancy Tiger: The World’s Longest Crochet Scarf: At the Denver Art Museum’s monthly Untitled event, the Fancy Tiger (a Denver boutique that specializes in independently designed/made apparel, accessories and craft supplies) taught museum goers some crochet skills and created the longest crocheted scarf in the world (currently at 115 ft).

Sweater Surgery: Double-Sided Cable Scarf: Fall is right around this corner and this pattern from Stefanie Girard is a fix for the fact that cables don’t look so hot from the backside.

Manchester Evening News: Knitting Cosies for Trees: Three knitters in Manchester, UK, have been knitting cosies (or cozies for us yanks) for trees. The project is part of the New Islington Festival. The knitting trio plans more knitted “urban yarn bombs” to brighten up Manchester and Salford.

Knitting Daily: What Knitting Mood are You In?: This post and accompanying excerpt from Michelle Rose Orne’s new book Inspired to Knit will help you create a “mood board,” designed by you to identify what objects, colors, textures and patterns you’re inspired by and in the mood for right now. Sounds like a dreamy way to kick of a new project.
