Learn a new language with DK Language titles

DK Language titles
We believe knowing more than one language is a gift, it makes you better understand everything around you and appreciate it more. It is never too late to learn a new language - so we checked out a few DK Language titles. Each of these books have a similar format so we can spend 15 minutes each day, and learn to speak, write, and understand in 12 weeks.

Lacy Ripples Blanket

lacy ripples blanket
This lacy ripples blanket measures 122 x 131 cm using 4 ply medium wool and a 5.5 mm crochet hook. Our completed blanket measures about 150 cm by 140 cm, as it depends on the type of wool and the tension. We can use any combination of wool, I used 2 balls of each of these three colour. The wool I used was the Red Heart Super Saver Jumbo 14 oz 744 yards. This design is from Bernat yarn.

Understanding Food and Spices

spice book
Over the years, I have experimented with different spices while cooking and baking - either adding or swapping it to get flavours we enjoy. Reflecting back, I feel my journey to understand, know, and appreciate different spices was because of my opportunities to experiment and include it into our meals. This has made me feel comfortable in deciding which flavours would work well, and which spices I want to add.
