I am inspired by this, and by the 125 other blankets that this woman has knit for charity. Here’s photos of numbers 108-126.

I’ve been working on three knitting projects since last fall, only one of which is anywhere near completion. I’ve been sort of in a slump lately with regards to knitting, mostly because my brain has NOT wanted to be alone in that meditative knitting state these past 9 or so months. It would rather be reading books in its leisure time. Plus, these three projects just haven’t inspired me at all. I’ve been wanting to make a knitted blanket for years, but didn’t quite know how I’d like to go about it, design-wise. These blankets are perfect, definitely the sort of thing I’d been thinking about but didn’t know I was thinking about.

It’s a links round-up:

1. pretty knitted shoes

2. a very attractive notebook art project

3. I WANT TO MAKE MY OWN STICKERS!!! What a brilliant idea.

4. Karen learns how to sew a very cute top

This is brilliant! And it keeps going and going.
