Friday 5

Its been awhile since I did a Friday 5...and as I have spent most of the last 2 weeks doing essentially nothing except reading, knitting and surfing the internet, I think it would be a good idea to give you a round up of some of my travellings around the inter-web (lest I start whining again).

First of all, this has to be the most delightful giveaway ever...Hudson Valley Fiber Farm is giving away a starter herd of Angora Goats for handspinners...and a shed.  How cool would that be?  It looks like they are going to do a good job vetting the entrants and they are offering a lot of follow up support.  Practicalities aside, how fantastic would it be to win a goat?

After searching around on the Fiber Farm blog, I also found the link to this very funny site Probably Bad News with a collection of some pretty funny mis-prints and examples of poor journalism.  It actually had me in tears of laughter at certain points (which I am not going to tell you as it may let you in on how low-brow my humour actually is).

Can I also mention the lovely charity knitting book A Hat in Time?  £5 for a collection of 35 different crochet and knit hat patterns, with the proceeds going to Save the Children.  Sounds like a fantastic deal to me. 

Have you seen the Stitch Wars exhibition yet?  Kev and Ellis sat for ages looking through the flickr site.  So cute. And yes, I married a man who knows most of the dialogue in the Star Wars movies. 

And finally, for your listening enjoyment, can I remind you of the lovely Fraggle Rock?  This knitting song has shown up in a few places this week and its just so stinking cute.

Have a great weekend.
