I'm getting better and better in baking, I must say. The first one, an apricot cake, was gone in one day, and the last slice of the rhubarb pie only hardly made it to the next day. Ond we're only two people in the house!

Two weeks back me and a few friends from the Essen kniting group went to one member's place to have fun and dye.
She had set up everything at the back yard, so we won't mess up the house. There was also bread and salad to eat, plus chocolate of course. How lovely!

Updated 07th January 2012!
this site a while back and thought the idea was great - but didn't do anything at the time. Now I came across it again, and thought why not? I've been looking for a direction to my life, and it is known to me that I work best towards goals.

I've been requesting and getting Kool Aid as "Random acts of Kindness" from many lovely people lately, and decided now's the time to try how they work.
I've dyed with Kool Aid before, but only in a microwave, a machine I don't have at the moment. So stovetop here's looking at you!
I followed the advice on
Knitty and first dyed some white sock yarn with three bags of Orange and two bags of Tropical Punch (that's red). I think they came our really nice and happy looking!

Darfur group at Ravelry has been moderating the Pencil cases for Sudan -KAL/CAL since the beginning of the year. The results are great - by the end of January we had about 50 cases done and sent to HELPSudan, I don't even know how many we have now!
But the KAL is not over yet. It will end on the 31st of March, so now's the time for the last push (or better said knit).

This time I'll use my Darfur Friday to make a book review. I devoured such a strong, impressive, emotional, raw and honest biography this week I have to share it with you.
Tears of the desert by Halima Bashir, a Darfurian doctor who did all she could for her people, was hunted down for it, but could escape to Great Britain and survived.
