Last Week on the Web

Time for another last week on the web!

Knits in the News
The fourth annual Harris Tweed Ride took place in Glasgow recently, to celebrate Harris Tweed and the resurgence of wool’s popularity in the fashion industry. This looks like such great fun—be sure to scroll through the gallery.

Ashley over at Woolful has posted a couple of Woolspirations posts. I just love this video about Scotland’s wool industry, filmed in 1941.

Angela at KnitLuck wrote about why one should date a knitter. Maybe I should add this to my profile.

If you ever wondered where socks go to die, well… there’s your answer. The internet.

I take back whatever I’ve said before, this is my new life plan.

SHUT UP.

Creators
Lucy Sparrow created 4,000 felt grocery-store items. And now I want a Flake bar.

The Smithsonian Museum has been yarn bombed as part of a large installation. It’s a beautiful story and beautiful “bomb” work.

Pantone has released their Spring 2015 color report—which colors are appealing to you right now? Or are you, like me, too focused on living in the soon-to-be Fall moments?

Yarn
Speaking of new colors, Crabapple Yarn have released their new fall colors.

…and so has Quince & Co.

Patterns
Finally this week (last week… whatever), Ysolda Teague launched her new pattern collection, Knitworthy; eight patterns designed to be giftable for those you have deemed “knitworthy” and obviously that includes yourself. I love the hat she released at launch, so I’ve purchased the whole collection and can’t wait to see what else she has in store!
