    Keeping with my red, white, and blue patriotic theme, I present the In Between Dishcloth. I gave it that name as you double crochet the stitches in between each other for the main body of the cloth. The result is a simple but cute dishcloth pattern that works up fast and is easy to crochet. The free crochet pattern below is written for the blue dishcloth as the main color. For the red dishcloth, you just substitute your main yarn using red cotton to start the dishcloth. Then trim around the red cloth using white and finishing with the blue cotton.

    THE REAL ASBESTOS HORROR STORYIn a little-noticed article in the Washington Monthly in March 1984, Jim Sibbison, a former press officer for the Environmental Protection Agency, boasted about how easy it was to use gullible reporters to spread scare messages. A former Associated Press reporter, Sibbison joined EPA in 1970, under Administrator William Ruckelshaus, and stayed there through 1981."One of the first things I learned in the job is that reporters take too much on faith what the government tells them," Sibbison wrote. "In those days, the idea was to get the media to help turn the EPA…

    I crocheted another double layered towel topper which is similar to my pointed handle towel topper. The main difference in this towel topper is that it’s a heavier, more basic pattern for the topper. It has a waffle looking texture to the pattern and so I named it the Waffle Towel Topper pattern. This towel topper is crocheted using sugar n’cream weight cotton yarn with a G crochet hook. I used a kitchen towel folded in half that requires no cutting or sewing.

    I needed to make a strap for my grey and pink colored recycled bag so I used a spool knitter. There are many variations of this 4-prong tool and you weave the loops around the posts by slipping the bottom existing loop off and over the new loop. You work around to each post in this manner to weave a long braided-style strap. I love how by using the grey and then pink bags, the strap has a variegated look about it. Here is a photo of the spool knitter I used which is made by Rugworks. The handle is being made from recycled plastic bags made into plarn. I created a striped look for the strap…

    All the sex in all the world could never compete with the feeling I experienced some years ago in a single, solitary moment, which was seared in my memory for all time and now resides at the forefront of my consciousness. It happened when I was in the final year of my apprenticeship as a syringe-handler at a waste dump in South Wales. The dump lay at the bottom of a U-shaped valley in the rural hinterlands of Pembrokeshire. No-one could say how long the dump had been there, but a continuous inflow of material over time had created a monster. From a distance one could see a vast, undulating…

Aside from being absolutely awful, you have to sit there going through your own things and reassuring yourself over and over again that you are not a hoarder. You end up with a million trash bags of things you do not know why you kept. Things like, oh I don’t know, an accordion file stuffed with papers and assignments from school that you thought maybe you should keep but haven’t even opened it since you stopped going to grad school anyways, and your reason for taking all the horrible classes you did are stuffed…
