Baking, crafting, mama-ing and taking photos of it all. When I remember.

It’s probably hot enough…

…to make these crayons in the sun!

We’ve made these, given them as gifts, received them as gifts… Super easy – take small pieces of old crayons, put them in some sort of mold (here we used silicone ice cube trays), expose to heat to melt (in this case, we put them in the oven), remove from heat to let harden. Pop out of the mold and color!

Judging by the state of an errant crayon left out in our driveway a few days ago, I suspect this project could easily be accomplished by leaving the mold full of crayon parts out in the sun for a while.

More socks, y’all!

I am on a roll. This is the third pair I’ve finished in recent months, after not knitting any for years. (And yes, I’ve started another pair! Jaywalkers! Only ten years late.)

This pair is Lacy Ribs Socks, from the book Socks From the Toe Up, which I love. The yarn is The Woolen Rabbit Harmony, which I also love, rescued from an already-knit single sock that never worked for my foot shape. These are much better! I do love me a nice heel flap.
