The German Heel is really quite lovely.
It has an extra four stitches at either end of the heel flap, giving the side of the foot a lovely decorative edge. Because of this, the heel will pull in a bit between the ankle and the back of the Achilles tendon. For those who prefer a snug fit, this is perfect.

Hannah Rose—a newly-discovered Danger to Everyone—is sent to live with her aunt in Brooklyn. There, Rosie discovers a family legacy of strange abilities and dangerous talents. She also finds others like her at her aunt’s summer “boot camp” for psychic teens. Her training tests her gifts—and her patience—but over the summer she does begin to learn to control her unique skills and meets a boy with equally dangerous strengths—a boy who seems to be made just for her. Together, they find a sort of peace that neither has ever experienced, and it looks like it will last—until disaster breaks them apart in a way neither saw coming.
“What a way to start a series! …Grounded will keep the reader swept along, rapt in magic and wrapped in yarn, to its stunning conclusion.”
author of A Life in Stitches

I hate dishcloths.
Really really hate them.
I don’t like sponges much either. Brushes are okay —especially the kind that let me squirt soap out of them. They rock my world (in a very small way).
But I LOVE dishtowels. I like the feel of an absorbent towel soaking up the damp and making my hands nice and dry.
So I can’t join the dishcloth revolution, but I CAN add my hand towel to the mix. What’s even better is these fit the bill for low-key mindless kitting.

This toy is a fabulous math lesson for your young friends (or yourself) and is also–as I’ve learned–a nice stress toy for kids with ADD.
The hexaflexagon is knit sectionally, attaching one piece to the next as you work, then seamed to create the hexaflexa shape.
The pattern includes a photo tutorial on how to seam and fold the hexaflexagon. Picture seen here from © facelikefizz via Ravelry.
The blog post, HexaFlexing Fun, and the pattern link to videos of hexaflexagons in action.
I can’t wait to see the modifications you make! Enjoy!
Current file version: v2.
This free eBook walks you through the process of knitting socks top-down. For ease-of-reading, the book has been laid out in landscape, giving you a wider (and thus larger-font-sized) view of the text.
Links in the eBook are live, giving you access to tutorials and more. We are on version 5 of this as folks have sent in new/different/better links and such. Check your version number to be certain you have the latest.
There is a companion book on toe-up sock knitting.
A book about an eminently practical character needs an eminently practical book.
Within this prototype enhanced eBook PDF, we have created a digital book that includes:
- The full text of Jane Eyre
- Direct icon-links to the CraftLit and Just the Books mp3 audio which covers the indicated chapter
- Each chapter includes discussion questions for book groups and writing prompts for students—making it eminently useful for ESL students and homeschooling families
- Note: This edition/version does not include expanded annotated in-text links—those are planned for future EeBooks. However, any links which appeared on CraftLit and Just the Books show notes are included. Future enhanced eBooks will include more robust annotations.
Many thanks to the sponsors whose generosity supported the creation of the EeBook:
The eight socks in this eBook are inspired by the characters in the novel Grounded. The pattern eBook currently includes Rosie’s Firestarters, Izzy’s Bouncin’ Blues, Jenn’s Subtle Majiks, and Jasmine’s Ethereal Socks.
Or you can get the eBook with all 8 patterns!

The Great Gatsby
by F. Scott Fitzgerald
One of the greatest moments in modern fiction, The Great Gatsby is a book you can discover anew every time you pick it up.
This recording is a special “Just the Benefits” version of this book—the audio you download here is only the curated commentary Heather provides before and after each chapter—with audio indicators letting you know when to go read or listen to the next chapter.
We can’t play the book’s audio, but we can recommend: As a companion to our “Just the Benefits” version of this fantastic novel, you might like to listen to Jake Gyllenhaal narrate The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald.
(This version has come highly recommended by other CraftLit listeners.)
