Keep school supplies organized (and make sure kids get their apple every day) with this adorable set. Whoooo’s ready to go back to school? By Ana Paula Rimoli
When I found out I was pregnant in early 2005, I decided to try knitting some baby hats. I looked up free patterns online and didn't understand a single one of them, but they seemed to often use double-pointed needles. So I bought some, learned how to use them ( see my double-pointed needle tutorial to learn how they work ), and started experimenting with my own hat patterns. These are the two that were worth keeping, after many others that got pulled apart because they were wonky or badly sized. The yarn is Bernat CottonTots Confetti , which is by far the softest 100% cotton yarn I've found in craft stores. I didn't record a pattern as I made them.
I finally got the chance to put together a how-to guide for creating a wax seal out of a wooden dowel. This started out as an idea that even Derek was skeptical of. I have to admit that I get a lot of ideas that work in my head, but not so much in real life.
