Interesting idea.

Did you catch the release of the sock blanks last week? Curious about what a sock blank is? It's a knitted length of fabric, dyed, that you can start unraveling and working on from one end. That's right, you knit or crochet directly from the fabric, rather than wind a skein into a center-pull ball first! These limited edition lovelies are dyed in a gradient; darker on one end, going to lighter in the middle, and back to dark at the other end. So fascinating!

Good advice.

This is no way to live. Literally. We’re only 17 days in, and people are already exhausted by it. Trump hasn’t invaded any countries (yet), but he’s certainly invaded our minds and hearts. As Kevin Baker wrote in Politico, “thanks to social media, and to the nature of our new president and his administration, politics is suddenly with us always, in every aspect of our lives, including wherever we may look for diversion.”

And that’s not healthy. There is — as our president might say — a tremendous mountain that shows that when we live in an ongoing state of outrage, anxiety, fear and stress, it wreaks an awful toll on our physical and mental health. It’s not sustainable. And there is another way.

Sharing on in case any of my space-loving peeps somehow missed it.

My friend wrote a book! I like it. It's a sweet girl-meets-girl love story, set in the space-going future, with interesting bits of fashion design, Japanese culture, and a few charming nods to Dumas-esque language. I enjoyed it quite a bit, and was sorry it wasn't longer.

For the goth in your life.  This amuses me beyond words!

I'm less surprised that this exists than that it has so many positive reviews.

Anyway, here's another Valentine's Day gift for you.

There may yet be hope for supermarket tomatoes!!!

The researchers are using traditional breeding to create the better tasting tomato, even though genetic engineering would be much quicker. “I don’t want people to not eat a great-tasting tomato because they’re scared of it,” Dr. Klee said.
...
For home gardeners, there is already a version available, a cross between the best-tasting heirlooms and a modern variety. In exchange for a donation of $10 or more, Dr. Klee’s laboratory will send a packet of seeds.

I've been watching Jas. Townsend and Son for a while. I've been reading Afroculinaria for a while. Today the streams crossed.
