OT - Neutralizing odors with coffee grounds

Lucinda Shastid
 

From an RVing list I'm on:

"Here’s an endorsement for the coffee fix: I work in a hospital, and sometimes odors are unavoidable and bad, sometimes for days, even with good cleaning. Our coffee is supplied in prepacked in paper “pods” which are put in rooms and hallways as needed. Works great! Even on the oncology ward where the chemo patients can smell hand sanitizer at 25 feet."

I didn't like the description of Wool Week as "the mecca of all knitting and textile festivals," and the fifth(?) photo was captioned
"Native breeds of sheep on Bressay Island" but I think all the sheep are of the same breed.

Still, it's interesting.

Today's Meeting

Lucinda Shastid
 

Lucinda, Shelley, Jane, Helen and Charlene were there.  Discussions included recipes, family, etc.  Nothing world-shattering, but very appropriate for Thanksgiving: good friends, good fiber, good fun.

Jane inspired me to "take a fresh look at" how I can weave two knitted pieces together, and I hope to show you the results next time I come.

All Meetings in Classroom

Lucinda Shastid
 

During this winter, all of our meetings will be in the Classroom (third building on the left, at the top of the hill).  This is mostly because it warms up more quickly than the Historic House.

Re: OT - Hilltop Hanover Farm Thanksgiving Box

Helen
 

There was a post on Instagram to show what is going into the Thanksgiving Boxes.

By looking at the picture it looks like:
Lots of greens butter lettuce, mustard greens, spinach, Kalem Radishes, colrobi, spagetti squash, butternut squash and black futzu squash, carrot, potatoes, garlic, shallots, herbs.

Hope that helps

Hi all, has anyone purchased the Hilltop Hanover Farm Thanksgiving Vegetable Box in the past? I understand that it changes year to year but I’m trying to figure out what does it generally come with.

Hi Charlene,
Have you tried contacting the folks at Hilltop? They could probably tell you what is in the box.

Hung With Care!

The children are nestled all snug in their beds, the hand-knit stockings are hung by the chimney with care, and congratulations, you’ve created a beautiful Christmas tradition without a whole lot of stress and fuss. Our Knit Before Christmas Stocking contains all the love that goes into the making without taking the twelve days of Christmas to do it!

Just Two Skeins Of Gentle Giant

But a swift knit isn’t any less special, especially considering this stocking’s considerable charms, starting with its festive scale. Using just two skeins of our Gentle Giant, big stitches work up into a big stocking with a right jolly old spirit. Its splashes of bright color, how they twinkle, its toes how merry, its heels like roses, its hanging loop like a cherry!
