But that said, I recognize there is a lot of good on the Internet. It certainly enables me to keep in touch with my family with an ease that we only dreamed about 20 years ago. I also love online shopping, Pinterest, Ravelry, My Fitness Pal, and a number of other sites. But probably the neatest thing about the Internet is how it can teach you to do stuff. Almost all my knitting know-how came from Youtube videos. And today, during my kids' three-hour nap (yay!) the Internet gave me the idea to make these cute little handwarmers and even taught me a couple basic embroidery stitches with which to embellish them.
And then I made them. They are filled with rice and fit into the palm of your hand. You microwave them for 30 seconds, then slip them in your pockets for a winter stroll.

non-blurry indoor photos on a winter's day.
