Sugru Review!

I have to share with you a new product that has so many uses!!! It is called Sugru and it is play dough for grown ups. All you do is find a need, open the package, squish it and mould it anywhere you want. Sugru can stick to anything and hardens like other silicones. I had the perfect problem to trouble shoot. My dishwasher rack  started to rust and fall apart. Yuck! I took all of the rust off but this left a metal rod exposed. You have to squish it. It feels just like play dough but has a funny smell to it.  Make sure you keep this away from children!!  You have to let it dry for 24 hours and Ta Da it is fixed!!! Sugru is amazing! I have used my dishwasher now for an entire week and Sugru has protected the dishwasher rack. No more rust and I did not have to buy a new rack I could still use this one. Stuff is not made to last any more but with Sugru you can fix it. You can even personalize products to make them better.

Oatmeal Pullover Sweater Finished!

I adore my new red-orange sweater. The pattern is called the Oatmeal Pullover Sweater from Jane Richmond . This morning the temperature outside was 40 degrees and it was perfect weather for a sweater! When a project takes so much time you sometimes wonder if all the effort is really worth it. I am so glad I finished it. I did do a few things differently, for instance, I made full length sleeves not 3/4. Funny story, after knitting the amount the pattern asked for I realized that it was too long so I just decided to knit the rest of the sleeve. (I guess I have short arms.) It also looks great under my Minoru Jacket from Sewaholic Patterns.  You should definitely try it!
