Anne Eunson’s Shetland Lace fence, photographed by Kate Davies

- Glenna C. is doing a weekly series about how to navigate the many decisions that knitters make when knitting a sweater. On the Subject of Sweaters: Part 3 is about choosing & substituting yarns. I have such a crush on these swatches, which, for you non-knitters out there, help you to make sure that the sweater you knit will turn out in the size you want. If you are a knitter, check out those posts, because they are full of resources that I haven’t come across elsewhere.

I chuckled my way through this letter that punter Chris Kluwe wrote to a Minnesota lawmaker who suggested that NFL players should be prevented from making public statements in favour of gay marriage.
