Happy Tuesday! Here are some of my favorite links that I’ve run across recently.
One thing that I’ve been hankering to try my hand at is dyeing my own yarn. I’ve been eyeing this KnitPicks kit as maybe a good beginner introduction. Anyone tried that one out & know if it’s any good? Eventually when we have a garden in the backyard (definitely not this summer — too busy. Hopefully next summer…) I want to grow stuff for natural dyeing. Any recommendations on resources about natural dyeing & what to grow?
I am really good at finding aspirational knitting patterns (seeing as I only vaguely “know” how to knit, and have completed half a washcloth.) These cowls are beautiful, and I hope someday I’ll actually be able to make them!
I haven’t found a good place for my sewing machine to live at the house, but I need to, so I can make some of these baskets!
I’ve had a hankering for some good chocolate chip cookies lately, and M is definitely on board. This recipe looks pretty easy to just swap out replacer for the eggs. Plus, chunks of chocolate? Sign me up.
Things that scream summer to me have been popping up all over the place on my blog reader. #1? Grilling. M and I are waiting until after the wedding to break into all of our presents, so when we set up the grill, I definitely want to make these kabobs.
#2? All the salads. I love gyros, so this chicken gyro salad sounds delicious. I don’t know if I can wait for the grill to make this one!
#3? One word: RIBS. These crock-pot ribs are definitely happening sometime soon.
