I've been considering creating this thread for a little while. Basically, it's a series of cool links I've seen: Some are knitting related, other's are not. I intentionally did not include KH on this list for the sheer reason, of "Well Duh!" I also stayed away from blogs in this list. Feel free to add links to the list but tell us what the heck they are and if you are so inclined... why you add it.

A quote from the "I Used To Believe" site that was in the "best" category:

I used to think sheep shrank when it rained.

Here's three of my procrastination links:

An active volcano!

http://www.fs.fed.us/gpnf/volcanocams/msh/

I use this one to draw cartoons for my friends:

And here's a really good logic game. The instructions are in German, but you don't really need them. It teaches you how to use it in the puzzles. Just drag and drop the arrows.
