This may be the cutest knitting pattern I have ever seen: Snails and Slugs
I found it via Ravelry - I requested & received an invite to the knit/crochet community ages ago, but chickened out of actually logging into the site. I was worried a) that it would be a huge time-suck (it is) and more importantly b) that I would be completely intimidated. Let's face it, I may have been knitting for a long time, but I do it very casually and I'm neither fast nor a maker of complicated items.
However, some people I know recently joined and started playing around, and I figured I might still be intimidated, but at least I wouldn't be lonely.
It turns out to be very interesting, and there's lots to do and see. The temptation to sort through my stash and catalog every. single. yarn. to the site... is kind of strong. So far, I am resisting.
(Oh, and for those curious, I found my camera cable. Yay!)
