There's a nice long article in yesterday's Boston Globe about knitting (it's young! it's hip! it's amazing!): Knitting factories: "Stitch 'n' Bitch" sessions create tightknit groups. This one is worth a read, too; the writer uses lots of different sources and goes a bit beyond the usual "This isn't your grandma's knitting group!" revelation. Also, on the sidebar to the right, there's a link to a page of resources, which includes contact info for some (Boston-area) knitting groups, classes, stores, and, yes, blogs. Nice going, blue blog and fireballhead!

It's really easy to knit a cell phone cosy. If you're looking for a pattern, though, check out the newish free pattern at So cute! And as a bonus, through a link there I discovered that four patterns from the book Knitting Pretty are available for free online: cell phone cosy, beer cosy, super-long ribbed scarf, and warmest mittens.
