You would think, if you could see my knitting up close, that making holes in my work is one thing I don’t need help doing. But you’d be wrong. Well, you’d be right, actually, but there’s a difference between a deliberate hole (laciness) and an inadvertent hole (laziness). My friend Bonnie is trying to school me in yarn-overs. As an aid, I’ve found this How To Make A Knitted Yarn-Over For Dummies page.
Another friend (yes, I have two — Indeed, I have more than two) recommended this page on cheese-making, which reminds me why I don’t make cheese. I adore this woman’s nickname: The Procraftinator. Wonderful stuff!
Finally, I highly recommend this beautiful, insightful, chilling, inspiring, wonderful blog: The Wide Earth Smallholding. From Yemen to the US, from gardening to animals to homeschooling to parenting in places/times of crisis, this blog hums quietly through the world and makes me calm.
It also makes me want to make cheese and knit.
