Taking a Breath

Today is a really special day for a few reasons. It is the first day of school, and it is my wedding anniversary!

As you can imagine, things are a little crazy, but I've got my August sock on the needles (not that I will get to work on it).

Due to the way life seems to be going, I'm going to take the week off from blogging. But I would hate to leave you alone in this space, so here are some cool things you can go check out.

  • Alex Tinsley has launched a new Kickstarter campaign, this time with a collection to benefit organizations seeking to specifically re-home black cats and dogs. Helo approves.
  • My new podcast obsession is YarnTalk. It's more of a youtube channel than a podcast, but it means I can now count an Allyson Dykhuizen pattern for the PALKAL.
  • Speaking of YouTube channels, Felicia Day's The Flog is back!
  • Also not about yarn, but the Two Bossy Dames newsletter is a wonderful gem delivered straight to your inbox. Just check out their archive.
  • I love this post over on Neglecting My Kids about how seasons change for knitters. 
  • And Emma Welford is writing great things about picking colors for a sweater project.

Hope you enjoy your week!
