One of my favorite knitting sites is knitty. Cool knitting patterns, plus helpful articles.
And speaking of Miniature Wild Kingdom (see post below), this morning in the garage I almost stepped on a Black Widow that was scurrying across the floor. I had bare feet, too. I sprayed the creature to death with bug spray. I actually feel guilty about this, but, especially with little kids around, I can't risk having dangerous creepy crawlies around the house!
