BIG Sale Plus a FREE Craftsy Mini-Class: The Ins & Outs of Grafting
Grafting might be the biggest bugaboo in knitting. Even many experienced knitters HATE it. I only got comfortable with it when I had to do it A LOT, but even so, I need good light and a don't-talk-to-me face to get it finished. Anne Hanson gets it, and can ...

Whipped Shea Butter
I made whipped Shea butter! I kind of love it. The only thing I would do differently, next time, is use a smaller bowl. It was a little hard to whip it really well in my too-big bowl.

Herb-Infused Oil
So, after about 2 weeks of infusion (sorry, I forgot to write about this last week), you strain your oil through cheesecloth, weigh it, and add vitamin E at 1% solution to preserve it. Store in a cool, dark place until you're ready to make it into fun things.

Wallace and Gromit
I am a Wallace and Gromit fan from way back. A Close Shave is pretty much my favorite, perhaps for obvious reasons. (I am entirely too excited about Shaun the Sheep 's new movie.) So, when a package of Wallace and Gromit postcards arrived on the "take it, w...

I still can't believe that this is so close to my house, and all I have to do is take the bike path!
