  1. Thanks for the link on mending knitting. I read it with interest because I have a couple of things I need to repair. I've been meaning to ask you though, do you know how to darn? That link suggested I re-knit the toe but as an inexperienced knitter I'd rather darn it. The socks took me so long to knit that I don't want to risk undoing them. I have Nana's darning mushroom but don't know where to start. I'd love you to do a post on darning!

  2. Thank you for the recommended reading...I will be checking out cooking as a political act.


Comments keep blogs going. Without them it feels like no one is reading. That is true of my blog and every other blog available for public viewing.

I know that children read my blog so I always check my links and information to make sure they're family-friendly. I don't publish comments containing any kind of link now because I don't have time to check the links before publishing comments.

All comments in English, please.
