kcunning is getting shit off her needles! (or at least she was a week ago) And encouraging all of us to do the same! So here I am! Getting shit off my needles and getting the Art Roundup UP and OUT! What else is getting done and out the door in GroupThink land? ( besides our awesome logo)

jennyapples showed us some YARN PORN with her recent-ish purchase of a hank of silk/merino laceweight yarn. FEEL THE FIERCENESS!

Doctor Who fan and flower lover Iron Mummy (Domestic Dork) displayed her work from her Floral Design class. I'm loving the pumpkin (whether it's real or not) and think it would be a GREAT way of incorporating the gourd for a few more weeks/months.

While you're searching for drawing books, check out the resources for beginning knit and crocheters! Mooncat82 wants candy (don't we all) asked for help and GT provided. The great thing about knit/crochet arts are that there are TONS of online resources (youtube, hello!?!). So if you need to see something OVER AND OVER AND OVER again to get it right (I still mess up stitches and then call it "free form"), you can do it online.

Tom.Cruise.Will.Haunt.You decided early on a Halloween costume. And then freaked out yesterday when it fell through.

Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield did a contest for people dressing up as him! I think Joanbeam needs to combine that post with this (satirical) post about Hadfield heckling a screening of Gravity.
