Friday Finds Jan. 15, 2016

TED has published a list of the most popular talks of 2015.  My favorite is number three on drug addiction and how everything we think we know about it is wrong.  What’s yours?

Did you know the Brooklyn Botanic Garden has an exhibition of knitted plants that are scientifically accurate?

There’s a short article in the Wall Street Journal about the exhibit and the artist who created most of it.  She’s a self taught knitter, which is kind of amazing.

If you are a chicken keeper you may worry about your darlings out there in the cold, it is January, after all.  Maybe you’ve thought about knitting them each a sweater, but thought that would be a bit silly.  Well, in my relentless pursuit of knowledge, I’ve run across a pattern for a chicken sweater.  Pictures first!

The pattern can be found here.

And that does it for this week.  You must admit I outdid myself with the chicken sweaters…

For you fiber lovers, a picture of a new handspun bulky yarn that recently went into the Etsy store.
