All Day Long

Love, love, love these images from Veronik Avery's upcoming book, Knitting 24/7. Even with the much-discussed "renaissance" of knitting, there still remains a dearth of patterns that are both interesting to knit and don't look like something my nana would wear. Veronik knows what's up.

Blue Bandit

Some more spring knitting. Sometimes I think knitting is the only thing keeping me sane, though truthfully I'm probably heading toward a sad future in which I suffocate under an avalanche of knitted oddities and am not found until days later in an eternal tangle of yarn.

"I know I survived the hard times by being obsessed," says Sonja Ahlers, and I'm inclined to agree.

Um... yeah. Happy spring!

This amazing commercial, from Natural Gas Belgium, takes the concept of warming up a house quite literally.

You can also watch how it was made:
