Happy Labor Day! Otherwise known as Monday, for those of you not in the USA. Before I get to the links, I want to make sure everyone got the update on the Nikki Gabriel triangle sweater pattern post from last week. There is a copy on its way to me from my new best friend, Melissa. There were a couple of others who acquired it and who I’m putting in touch with others who craved it. And for everyone else, Nikki Gabriel has said she’ll have it available on her site “very soon.” Huge thanks to everyone for all the input!
So with that, here’s a long overdue Elsewhere:
— Josef Albers’ color theory lessons, now in app form
— Apartment Therapy on the string art trend
— Coveting Z’s sweater
— Nice interview with the multi-talented Martha McQuade
— Hooray, more yarn trucks! — outreach-style from my friends at Haus of Yarn in Nashville plus a yarn-filled former fire truck in Ottawa, Canada
— Amazing yarn-bombed Pittsburgh bridge
— This Gridjunky photo essay about how he (un)does what he (un)does
— Mini-collection of student-designed free vintage-inspired patterns from Rowan
— Not sure whether to laugh, cry or order one of each: cat-inspired sock yarn
— And if that’s not enough links for you, may I point you to Caitlin’s latest lovely list
Oh! And ICYMI this week is the mega-tutorial, How to improvise a top-down sweater. It’s clearly time to get those Fall sweaters started!
