Little Big Planet’s Sackboy Knitting Pattern – Authorized?

Update (1/2/09): The Sun and Simply Knitting have apparently teamed up to offer a PDF of the Sackboy pattern for free as a download. Check out the full article here.

I’m in the middle of making a crochet Sackboy using a Sackboy pattern I bought on Etsy, but while digging around eBay today I also discovered that the upcoming January 2009 issue of Simply Knitting magazine (#49) will feature an Alan Dart knitted Sackboy pattern.

Simply Knitting January 2009 #49

I’m not really familiar with this British magazine, but maybe some of you living in more cosmopolitan areas of the U.S. can get a hold of a copy?

Otherwise, you can probably get a copy on eBay by doing a search for “sack boy alan dart“.

eHarmony Friends and Family 3-for-1 Coupon Codes

As some of you may know, my husband Chris and I met through the online dating site eHarmony over four years ago. We’ve been rather revoltingly happy ever since (even when freezing our tushies off while appearing in the latest round of eHarmony TV commercials), which is why I wanted to share the love this holiday season and post some eHarmony coupon codes that will give you three months of membership for the price of a single month, or under $20/month. That’s right in line with the monthly fees at other online dating sites that don’t provide the personality screening and guided communication options that make eHarmony a better fit for those of us who are more interested in real relationships versus just a date for the weekend. 😉

For eHarmony Friends and Family, get a 3 month subscription for the price of 1 ($59.85), good till 12/31/08.
