I'm sure you've heard the news that the Fox Corporation is doing a bang up job pissing off knitters this week by forcing them to stop producing anything related to the Jayne Hat. I agree with What the Craft that this is a copyright issue and that we all get pissy when other people take our copyright so we have to suck it up when the shoe's on the other foot. I'm just worried about when the BBC is coming to take all the Dr. Who stuff off Ravelry...

Thanks to Knitty I found out that Kaffe Fasset is having a giant retrospective in London. If you're not able to make the hop over the pond, check out Dreaming in Color, which is your Kaffe Fasset retrospective in book form. Here's to hoping that it will make an appearance in North America

Gifts for Knitting is gearing up for Mother's Day with some great gift recommendations for Mother's Day. It's my favorite way of telling my husband what I want to my birthday/Christmas/Mother's Day/special treat.

Learn more about the term Yardage Chicken from Sezza Knits, a game I seem to be playing a lot lately with both the Shakespeare Cardigan and the Dahlia Cardigan.

I am giving thanks to Project Stash for sharing the Merging Ripple Shawl. That's some badass Knitting if I've ever seen any thought I am so tempted to call it the Merging Nipple Shawl...

It's Project Stash's bday - go give her some good birthday wishes

Knitting Sandwich knows how to knit a mean dishcloth.

Knitting at Craft Gossip has some excellent tips sweater knitting, putting some focus on the sleeves first.

Sarah Ronchetti at Sezza Knits is one of my favorite knitting designers. She does some amazing patterns for kids that I keep favoriting on Ravelry. The pattern above is from her. It's a kidraglan sweater called Alec. Read all about how this great pattern got its name.

Peacfully Knitting is a Rowan Ambassador and she has a good run down on what's in the new issue of the Rowan Magazine, which was enough for me to want to go out and find some cotton yarn to make a cardigan.

I had some time to read some of my favorite blogs over the weekend. Here are some highlights:

Now, I'm not much of a quilter, but I squeed when I heard the news that Chiagu was working on Quiltfolio, a free online community for quilters. She's going to be a starting a kickstarter campaign soon so you can get in on the quilting action early. How I wish I was a better quilter, but it's just not something I'm very good at.

I like the Gemini top from this year's Knitty. It's great summer knitting.

Knitting Sandwich made a delightful french press cozy (see above), which I'm sorely tempted to copy.

Another piece of excellent summer knitting is Will Save Nine's Sansa's Summer. A lovely top that should take no time to knit, forget the fact that it's Game of Thrones themed.

I love this new pattern from Cascade, the Casablanca Scallop Cowl. Wonderful use of a gorgeous yarn.

Turns out I'm not the only one who dislikes acrylic interchangeable knitting needles.

Knit Luck Links January 2013

2skp6_largeEvery now and then I come across knitting content that needs to be shared. Here are a few things that have piqued my knitting interest.

Dennis Marquez's new blog Unbound Knits is a new favorite of mine and it's a textbook example of how to start a knitting blog. Excellent design with beautiful photographs with a clear writing voice. It was a no-brainer to add him to my blog reader. I'm totally taking notes. He's a new designer and just the sneak peeks of his latest design have me smitten.

This came out a few months ago, but there's an article about Toshiko Horiuchi MacAdam and her hand crocheted playgrounds in Japan.

Melissa Leapman's Knitting for the Perfect Fit is a must have book for every knitter. If you want to knit sweaters that fit and have an intimate understanding about how increases and decreases work then you must get this book. It will save you years of knitting frustration and you will end up with more sweaters that fit and a stronger sense of knitting design.

Slipped Stitch Studios's Dr Who Tardis Toile Project Bags. I'm not even the biggest Dr Who fan and I still think this clever pattern is a must have for a knitting bag.

  • I found Falling Stitches during Eskimimi's Knit and Crochet Blog week and its' become one of my favorite blogs, even more because it's become a French/English bilingual blog. I can read knitting related content and improve my French? Winning!
  • Fresh Stitches is having a Kool Aid Dying Week where you can learn everything you ever wanted to know about hand dying yarn with Kool Aid. This is some excellent knitting blog content right here.
  • One Loopy Knitter has become another blog favorite of mine, not only because of the awesome knitting content, but also because her blog is so well designed. I'm so envious of the beautiful logo and social media icons. Badass. Oh and the knitting patterns. Inspirational.
  • Pumpkin Sunrise pointed me in the direction of Twist and Twine yarns, because what I really need is more yarn.

What kind of crazy things do you like finding on the internet? Is there something I should be sharing on Knit Luck? Let me know in the comments! See all the other awesome knitting things I've found in past Knit Luck Links Posts.
