The Best Pork Ribs Dry Rub

Something New: The Pattern Exam

A group of bloggers launched something new today called The Pattern Exam! I have been furiously working behind the scenes for the last few weeks and neglecting my own blog (OK, I was doing that anyway) to get this ready. Another blogger came up with the awesome idea of testing various categories of sewing patterns out there and putting it …

Circle Shrug Free Pattern

Happy Thursday! Today I have a really easy and customizable FREE pattern to share with you! I kept seeing a ton of these drape cardigans out there, but nothing in a circular shape like I see in a lot of knitting patterns.
