I can't stop knitting these mittens from Martha Stewart. I'll write more when I have actually finished a pair but their ingenious construction has me addicted.
Speaking of knitting, I really liked Ysolda's thoughtful piece on pattern pricing.
I have been canning like a mad thing. On Monday alone, I put up 8 pounds of berries - we have at least 8 opened jars of jam in the fridge already, so we have been eating jam with everything (except ice cream, as my ice cream maker broke and I totally cried about it). However, this vegan/GF Victoria Sponge cake recipe is AMAZING and went some way to make me feel better.
Next on my to-make list are salsa and passata.
It used to be that most of my inspiration came from blogs, but these days I am really loving Instagram, my current favourites are: JoyProuty, FareIsle, Homesweethomestead (found via Karen), and Earth_Mamma
