We've been getting ready for Fall, with our biggest Knitcircus issue ever in the works! Twenty-four patterns and interviews with Cat Bordhi and Adrienne Martini, the debut of Wendy Johnson's regular column…

Something for guys of all ages…

And plenty of accessories for you and your lucky holiday giftees.

The new Knitcircus Magazine goes live on August 1, but we've plenty to do between now and then, including watching Eclipse.

I'm a bit shy about the extent of my geekdom on the blog, but suffice it to say that Mike and I have already purchased our tickets and arranged for a babysitter, and if there's anything to do with Lord of the Rings, Firefly, Harry Potter, etc, we're pretty well in the loop. Speaking of which, if you're into sci fi at all, I highly recommend Miss Kalendar's Brass Needles podcast, where one can listen and revel in crafting, Star Trek, dressing up and altered-world fiction to heart's content.

So in the spirit of excitement for Eclipse's release, we're giving away an Eclipse Audiobook, maybe not before the midnight showing, but after the first rush as you knit movie-inspired accessories for the second viewing…
