Although not nearly as exciting as a Packers v. Bears football game, the April 29 wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton is fast approaching and the media buzz is building. You can keep up on the latest events by checking out this link at The Guardian.
As one would expect, authors and publishers are getting in on the royal wedding extravaganza and from some unexpected areas of publishing. Today, this book caught my eye: Knit Your Own Royal Wedding by Fiona Goble. The book includes patterns for everything needed for a royal wedding, including instructions on how to knit the archbishop of Canterbury.
For those eager to knit but not ready to commit to the buying the book, the Guardian has published a free copy of the Corgi pattern. Corgis are the Queen's preferred breed of dog. Check it out here. Stitch together a little dog and watch the events on YouTube; it will be almost like attending in person.
