I am going to admit something rather embarrassing: I have neither read nor seen any of the Game of Thrones books/episodes. I am a HUGE fan of Sean Bean, and, well, poor Ned Stark. *sniff*
That being said, Heather over at Jimmy Beans Wool is giving us a progress update on the GAME OF THRONES MKAL!
The Game of Thrones Mystery Knit-along has officially begun! Kristen posted the first clue on Ravelry on May 3rd, and Ravelers grabbed their needles and cast on for this bulky-weight mystery project inspired by Tyrion Lannister. Using Lorna’s Laces Cloudgate in our April 2015 Limited Edition color, Casterly Rock, the first clue flew by and we soon had the beginning of something special on the needles!

I’m a huge fan of Buzzfeed (incidentally, just teared up a few minutes ago at their Chicago Blackhawks video with little Cammy Can).
Today they have a great article on 19 Nerdy Knits You Need to Knit Right Now.
Of course, there’s plenty of Doctor Who (swoon!), but also a Jayne Hat, some Harry Potter, Star Wars, monsters and mermaids, a few Ninja Turtles, a flipping adorable Baby Link, and even a crocheted Pokemon pattern for all y’all hookers.

Free pattern is in a PDF download over at Tahki Stacy Charles’ site. Awesome!
I have great news for me (not so much for the site): I FINALLY got a full-time job, which has actually taken me out of the home and therefore less time at the computer. That is the reason for the dwindling posts. I’ll try to get back to a respectable pace soon, I promise. SO many free patterns! In the meantime, follow me on Twitter as I tweet often during the day! I’m on twitter at @iKnitty.

The other day, I was sitting in a hot, humid field waiting for my husband to finish up a game of grass volleyball. Much to my surprise, A COOL BREEZE wafted around me. Shocking! Hopefully you’re feeling a little cooler lately – or it’s at least on the way.
To celebrate the kids getting ready to head back to school and the possibility of cooler fall weather on the horizon, go download a FREE beautiful Autumn leaves scarf pattern from ABC Knitting!

Happy Sunday, knitters!
This week’s free pattern from Tahki Stacy Charles is the Rosewood Cardigan – gorgeous! It really reminds me of Fall.
I’ve just started cabling, so I might give this one a try … after I’ve finished up all of the baby items!
