Handknit Heroes! Each issue comes with a pattern in the back. Subscriptions are $20/year for quarterly issues mailed right to your door. No e-publications here - you can almost smell the ink...
I know, I know - it's another YouTube post, but I need the readership's help with this one.
Is this woman really serious, or is this an attempt at comedy? Please cast your vote in the sidebar poll, and a few evaluative statements in the comments.

I can't complain about the recent weather. I saw my first robin this weekend, but honestly, I wasn't looking hard for them, because I thought spring was never. going. to. get. here.
So tonight I was flipping through the spring issue of Knitter's Magazine at the LYS and saw an little blurb aboutKnitGauge , an application for (what else) the iPhone. Can you say craftech? Dang. When I went online to check it out, I also found a link to KnittyBag, a very handy way to inventory your knitting needles. Don't tell my phone, but I'm a wee bit jealous.

As a child, I fell in love with the inventive language in his books. Even today, I still have ample opportunity to enjoy his alliterative powers. Karle Erickson (a name I never thought I'd type into my blog, but that's another story) wrote an oft-used set of choral warmups using the text from Dr. Seuss's A-B-C. "Many mumbling mice" makes multiple manifestations in rehearsals at St. Paul's. I dare say this collection has become a choral classic. (And a big thank you to Google for pointing this out - so informative, they are.)

His news spots are a huge nostalgia trigger for me. I have many memories of hearing his reports, which were (and are) the ultimate cliffhanger format; it's hard to imagine anything that could have kept two kids riveted to the car radio like "The Rest of the Story".
Amazingly, but not surprisingly, he was still under a 10-year, $100 million contract with ABC Radio. Paul Harvey. Good day.
Paul Harvey. Good day.
