There's been some buzz in the comments, so I'll say it out loud: The Strikke-Along is still on for fall, probably October. To join in, pick a project that's Scandinavian. Heck, buy Scandinavian yarn and knit anything at all. The requirements are pretty much non-existant. I intend to knit something out of "Norsk Strikkedesign", but other patterns, Latvian mittens, Bohus sweaters, it's all good. Something to keep in mind and start budgeting for if you can't blow big bucks on yarn with no notice. (Like me.) I'm hoping it won't take us all six months to get through that one. Unlike the Steek Along. Good grief.
There's also a fun link I keep forgetting to give you. A German guy was wondering what his cat got up to all day, so he rigged a camera around the cat's neck, timed to take photos every so often. The home page is here; you can get to the cat's travelogue from there. It's fun stuff.
