Easy Slouchy Unisex Beanie 18.8K Flares18.8K Flares × I have to admit, I’ve knit this hat countless times, but I don’t have one for myself. Without fail, every time I finish one, a friend or family member will try it on and I exclaim how good it looks on them and gift it. This is my most recent version. I wore it exactly once before it was stolen off my head and immediately given away. They’re just so easy to make, I’m always telling myself I’ll make a new one to keep! What you Need: Here’s the Pattern: Cast On enough stitches to fit the circumference of someone’s head from their hairline to the nape of their neck (for me, that was 120 on size 8 needles, 100 on size 10 needles and 80 on size 13 needles) just make sure you have an even number of stitches. Crown Shaping: Once you reach the appropriate amount of “slouchiness” start decreasing. This written version of the pattern has not been tested, and I’ve made this hat so many times that I don’t really count stitches and rows anymore, I just go until it looks right.

tillie tulip - a handmade mishmosh DIY Idea: Rainbow Melted Crayon Art & Man Made DIY | Crafts for Men... Artist and designer Jessica Kerbawy creates these amazing rainbow wall art pieces by gluing a spectrum of crayons on foam core, and then strategically melting them with a heat gun. The paper wrappers are left atop, with the remains of the colored wax dripping down. Though it may look like something you've seen before, I find these to be pretty clever and unique, and an update on the playing with melted wax and rainbow techniques. Jessica's prices are actually incredibly reasonable, between $25 and $75 depending on the size. But, it's also something you could try yourself, especially now that it's back-to-school season, and large boxes of crayons will be on sale.

7 surprising things you're not supposed to know about sunscreen and sunlight exposure (NaturalNews) Ask somebody about sunscreen and you're likely to receive an earful of disinformation from a person who has been repeatedly misinformed by health authorities and the mainstream media. Almost nothing you hear about sunscreen from traditional media channels is accurate. So here's a quick guide to the 7 most important things you need to know about sunscreen, sunlight and vitamin D:It's true: If you create a truly natural sunscreen product using exotic botanicals with powerful sunscreen properties, you will never be able to market it as a "sunscreen" product. That's because the FDA decides what can be used as sunscreen and what can't, regardless of what really works in the real world. And there are really only two natural ingredients the FDA has allowed to be sold as sunscreen: Zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. It's just another example of the FDA standing in the way of health innovation. You will not be able to pronounce most of the chemicals found in the ingredients list.
