5 Things I learned from blogs

I've learned a lot more than five things from blogs, but since you're probably sick of seeing how my sock race is coming along I thought I'd share these top tips from the last week:

1/ You can save yourself a lot of time by putting a tissue paper pattern between your needle and what you're embroidering.

2/ There is more than one way to knit a short row.

3/ Someone else's good photography skills can crush your self-esteem and simultaneously brighten your day.

4. Having a laundry room with space for a vintage table turned ironing surface means a lot more to me than I would have expected.

5. Life really is better with Japanese masking tape in it.

(Okay, I learned that last one from the stationery shop where I bought four rolls of patterned Japanese masking tape, but I only knew to look for it because of blogs.)

Have you learned anything from blogs this week?
