Knit this. . .

Okay, I'm not a great knitter myself, but here's a great idea for readers who are. Knit the Classics is an online bookclub where members read and discuss books and then challenge each other to come up with their own kniting projects inspired by the novels. Check out these Dante's Inferno legwarmers. Or this 1940s hat to accompany Margaret Atwood's The Blind Assassin. Or this "sniper cozie" for Septimus in Virginia Woolf's Mrs. Dalloway. I'll be curious to see what these talented knitters come up with for their fall picks, Sylvia Plath's The Bell Jar and Markus Zusak's The Book Thief. Lots of knitting information and of course good book discussions. (Thanks to the Bronte Blog for pointing this site out.)
