This week Chicago writer, Franklin Habit offers his (always) unique perspective on holiday coping strategies. I wax poetic (again) about the fabulous Clapotis (see image), by Kate Gilbert. I am clearly not smart enough to get on with the Felted Clogs pattern from Fiber Trends. Knit a Hug for Hope, or your favorite needy tree. Don’t miss Interweave’s Holiday Craft Patterns, and if you’d like to read the text of the Gnu Free Documentation Licence you can do so here. Or get the jump on next week by reading the Creative Commons Attribution Non-Comercial Licence here. (There will be a test.) Huge thanks, as always, to Dave. You can follow the progress of the Dink Dolls here. And don’t miss We’re Almost There, the new podcast from Marty, and Dame Candle Company’s own candle-maker extraordinaire, Wendy. Warning – it’s rated R, (for rockin’)!
