Yarn Fever - Catch It!

Oh, how I love my knitting obsession. Came home from work today and found that a friend had sent me two gorgeous skeins of sock yarn! Plus, tonight I'm going to start making the Pomatomus socks with my new skein of "Wisterious" yarn, which is peachy-pink and lavender and very lovely (even if I have absolutely no use for socks in that color.) My real source of glee, though? I finally finished a baby blanket for a dear friend who should be welcoming a Nugget of her very own in the next few weeks! This calls for a picspam. Collapse )

Just a few links for tonight's post:

-- Last night I watched The Wire's finale. Most of it was lost on me since I'm not that well-versed in the show, but it was still marvelous. Vulture has a shot-by-shot commentary on the final montage, and pitches for possible spinoffs.

-- Mental Floss talks about Michelangelo's "Pieta". And I'm so glad I got the new issue, because it's perfect airplane reading for Saturday's flight to Dallas.

-- Slate asks if excessive lyrics are ruining pop music.

-- Neatorama picspams the ten most beautiful bridges in the world.

-- Trifter lists ten fun and interesting facts about Ireland.

-- And Improv Everywhere staged a musical at a mall food court. :)
