I just joined Ravelry! What’s that? It’s an online community for knitters……….

I browsed through cardigan patterns for about two hours, and then I found this awesome, awesome sweater pattern.  It’s a pullover with a cabled neck, but the cables become owls, with buttons sewn on them.  The pattern is downloadable for free, here at the designer’s blog, Needled.

I also learned that vintage knitting books and patterns from the 40s, 60s and 80s in particular, are totally worth buying.

I’ve been listening to the Pains of Being Pure at Heart, reminiscing about their show on Saturday, and reading Judy Blume’s BLOG, where she writes about going to Maurice Sendak’s birthday party with her friend Lois Lowry.
