Yarnbombing and manuscripts

I have an enormous backlog of links and neat things, but wanted to get a couple of them out quickly.

The knitting group I’ve been a member of for some years has been engaged in a charity yarn-bombing project, and this has been noticed. Fun!

I’m taking a free online course thru Stanford University called “Digging Deeper: Making Manuscripts.” It’s on week three, but you can still sign up. I just did, and blew through the first three weeks in an afternoon. Fascinating stuff! I haven’t hit much new to me yet, but I like getting to hear and see the experts talk about and handle the books.

    I resisted the Stanford course initially [life overload!!!], but you make it sound manageable…

    It’s not like it is for credit or career building, so if you don’t finish it, no big deal. And you can download all the materials for later if you just don’t have time right now but want to see all of it. But so far it hasn’t been a huge time commitment, nor very difficult.
