Friday Links:: Comments, Gary Larson, Knitting

First of all, thank you for getting in touch about the blog comments. I think I’ve fixed it! It was a plugin I had installed that was somehow blocking the comments. Weird.

Would you mind leaving a comment on a random recent post just to check that the issue is actually solved? Thank you! And have a fab weekend! xo Carina

Shopping For a Boy? Give Him a Book About a Girl.

Modern lace.

The knitting-verse is in love with the knitted shawls in the movie Little Women that came out last year. I wish I were a proper knitter so I could have a go, but instead I’m working on my own version of Jo’s Shawl worked in crochet. We’ll see how that turns out! :-)

In the meantime, if you are a knitter, and you want your own Little Women project, here are some links for you:

Marmee’s Broderie shawl.

Beth’s Shawl.

Issue Two. The Willowherb Review. Aims to “celebrate and bolster nature writing by emerging and established writers of colour”. It is lovely reading.
