Page's stepfather, John, swears by his LL Bean original of this hat. After twenty five years, it's still his favorite, but, honestly, it's gotten a little, shall we say, worn. Hopefully he'll be able to attach himself to this modern version of his old standby! And, it's not just for dads. Timeless design isn't just about decades gone by; it's also about crossing ages and cultures.
A very simple knit for a beginner. This fancy looking neck warmer looks great worn over a regular shirt or a fancy outfit! Wear it at work when your neck gets cold but don't want to wear a scarf, wear it over that boat neck shirt you love so much, and make sure to bring it out on the town! I've had so many compliments on mine, so be careful, everyone is gonna want you to knit them one! w Blue Sky Alpacas -one skein Bulky 1004 polar bear - OR one skein Bulky Hand Dyes

Soapmaking can be a fun hobby or craft, and there are several different techniques you can use to create soap from scratch. The old-fashioned method of making soap involves using an agent called lye, but lye can be a dangerous ingredient for beginning soapmakers to use. However, there are several ways to make soap without lye; you can make a glycerine-based soap that does not contain the caustic agent, or use a rebatching or hand-milled process of soap-making that does not rely on lye to form each piece of soap.
You CAN Make Vegan Organic Soap! The world is getting greener and more conscious of how human behavior affects other species. With this, the population of those adopting a vegan lifestyle has increased. Many people, vegan or not, are interested in creating their soap without any animal products in them. One of the greatest advantages of creating your own soap is that you know exactly what is in it.

Just so we're clear: I freaking love this dress. So far I've made it twice, and if I am ever in my sewing room while the sun is up, I will take a picture or two of the ones that I've completed. (I also have two more cut out and half-sewn.) Here is why this dress is near-perfect: 1.
Magpie had a hard time falling asleep tonight, so I cuddled up with her in her bed and let her talk herself to sleep. She is one of those 4 year olds who says 100 things a day that leave you scrambling for a pencil and a scrap of paper. Tonight the subject was camping. Over the weekend, we did a little spring preview of a state park where we've never camped before: Deception Pass , Wash.
