Soups that I love that I can make: tomato, fish with aioli, cream of mushroom, black bean, green minestrone, carrot-ginger, beetroot borscht

Soups I can't seem to do as well as restaurants: tom yu ...

I'd love to test it, if it's not too late to volunteer! I'm in the middle of a scarf and could use a break from it, I guess.

Mochyn, could you PM me the pattern, please? Thanks in advance!

I'm mostly posting this to bump it so I don't lose track of the thread.

A common knitting problem.

Do other people have to write things down in a note pad and tick off the rows, or is that just ...

Shoot! There was an article on that very thing in "This Old House" (magazine). I'll see if I can find it, and paraphrase.

We blew cellulose into our wall cavities, and have definitely noticed a d ...

Welcome! And, good luck with those pesky hormigas (I have tiny bits of Spanish, too!). I do battle with them, too, though only inside the house. Had no idea they'd eat roots!

How about having "Custom Sausage Co" in the middle, and having "Oh, stuff it, better buy some sausages!" on the side?

Mmmmmm, dhosas! Love them. But, they're hard to find here. Mostly Northern Indian cuisine, and dhosas are from the South (I'm 95% sure). FYI, they're huge crepe-ish things with savory filling.

We had a pair of plump, healthy foxes cavorting around in the snow in the back yard on New Year's Eve morning. Looked like they'd found a nest of bunnies, moles or field mice. They were pouncing and ...

Okay, I've been looking through my old sweater chest and have found (of course) some old sweaters. I don't really like them, and think that, instead of trying to alter them, I'll use them to make a f ...
