Last Week on the Web

We’re back on this last Monday of November with things that happened while I was gone!

Knits in the News
Vehicular yarn bomb the first: this epic old truck yarnbombed by Knits for Life anfor Old Navy’s flagship store in San Francisco.

Vehicular yarn bomb the second: Lettuce Knit and Tim Horton’s paired up for this super mobile yarnbomb of a coffee truck. Be sure to check out the time lapse video at the bottom to see how it all came together!

“ADULT” LANGUAGE: I want this shirt so so so much, except this company seems to run on the stupid sizing of women’s clothing.

If you’ve never thought that sheep and goats are gorgeously picturesque, you’ve never seen, photos such as these.

Patterns
Big news in patterns this week! First up we have Twist Collective’s Winter issue—definitely some stunners in that bunch.

And Brooklyn Tweed launched Wool People 8. My favorite is Bristol Ivy’s Keel cardigan, though there are many queue-worthy projects in this bunch.

Some of you may have heard about the Indie Gift-a-Long going on, and this bundle of super geeky motif patterns came out of that effort. What are you knitting for the Gift-a-Long?

Creators
Here’s a fantastic interview with Cirilia Rose, whose new book Magpies, Homebodies, and Nomads is now available.

And a beautiful video about Imperial Yarn.

Techniques
Fresh Stitches wrote up a great blog post about choosing colors for colorwork projects.

Many of you know that I’m kind of anti-pom pom (though I’ve discovered a loophole in my anti-ness; more on that later), but for those of you who embrace the pom, Heather shares the best way to make a pompom.
