So much to love here. Mainly, that my heart may never recover from this cuteness, but on a practical note: Thank you for introducing me to Fog Linen - so many sweet gift ideas.

This book cover is amazing.
This is awesome.
Oh my God, are the tomato thief and the cantaloupe thief the same person? for shame.

Honey Rhubarb Ice Cream You won't be sorry. P.S. For the ice cream, I usually just use 3/4 cup honey and axe the sugar.
I love this color combo, and the gorgeous stitches make me excited to break out of my current stitch repertoire rut. Can't wait to see more progress.

This is gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous.
I think your work-in-progress installments are my favorite of all the posts on Idle Hands! It's so awesome watching the projects come together in a vicarious thrill kind of way. Also, this yarn is so lovely.

I'm obsessed with the photos in this post. I love them. That yarn is so butterscotch-y and delicious looking.

Oooooh, I love the buttons on the Twinkle Hoodie! So fun for fall.

I'll just put it out there that simmering apples in some sort of bourbon and then serving them over ice cream wouldn't be a crazy addition to something like, say, an annual shrimp boil.

This post made me laugh out loud several times. Also, the picture of the little mantis on your finger is impossibly cute. Kind of like if "A Bug's Life" was real.

Oh man. I am so looking forward to a tutorial from you on stuffed animal knitting. This is a skill I need to start perfecting before my future little nieces and nephews begin arriving.

It's time to confess that I have some pretty significant feelings of inadequacy and trepidation about cabling. But I'll tell you this, that hat is so, so cute. It makes me want to get over my anxiety by signing up for a class asap.

I just read the recipe for Grilled Portobello Stroganoff and immediately began searching for a day to make it for dinner. It. Looks. Amazing.

This might be my favorite photo ever on this blog. Kind of makes me want to knit little hats for all my fruit.
Without a doubt, my favorite feature is your "works in progress." I love seeing your projects in various stages of completion and watching them come together. I'd love to see more sewing projects as well -- the pleated apron and embroidered quilts were so, so fun and awesome.
This is blowing my mind. When I was watching Dawn knit Tate's blanket (, I remember feeling amazed that she could keep only six(?) strands from getting hopelessly tangled. I can't even fathom 1000 strands. Wild.

I also really love the Mountain Spirit and the Half and Half Boar, although there's something bizarrely realistic and yet oddly comforting about the Wall Mole. Which is nice, because I find actual moles to be bone-chillingly creepy (they have hands for noses!)

This is the most adorable sweater ever - I love the tiny buttons and the way the yarn looks so soft. What a fun gift.
