Looking for a high quality RC 4x4 truck under $200 for my 9 year old son. I know nothing about these things!
I would like to learn how to cross stitch; I have never had any hobbies that involved cross stitch type skills (never tried knitting, sewing, crocheting, et cet.) but it looks awesome! How do I get started? [more inside]
Craigslist has been (too) good to me, and I find myself in need of some kind of workbench to hold various tools. Please help me think about my construction requirements. [more inside]
I'd like to ask for a few months of a project-based subscription box as a Christmas present and am looking for recommendations! [more inside]
I was careful not to twist my stitches while casting on, nor in the first few rows, and I've really enjoyed the beginnings of this piece. Until I realized: the twisting just keeps twisting. [more inside]
I'd like to get my wife a set of wheel lights for her manual wheelchair. The requirements being a bit different from typical bicycle applications, I seek insight and suggestions. [more inside]
I want to gift my husband with a game (board, online, whatever) that we can play together an hour or so after work each weekday. Recommendations? [more inside]
Aimless wandering is one of my preferred pastimes, and finding things locally blends well with this; I have a strong collecting impulse and it's a good way to know an area. But many recreational spins on this - geocaching, Ingress - are too internet-based for my tastes lately, and feel somewhat artificial. So what other things do you find it interesting/useful to go hunting for? All I can think of offhand is edible weeds/plant stands.
I live in a hot, humid climate. I have bought a 60% acrylic, 40% nylon yarn to make baby presents for friends. It's not the best choice for this climate. What can I make with it? [more inside]
Anyone know of a place in the Brattleboro/Putney VT area where I could watch the MLS final on Saturday?
OH is a keen amateur photographer, but the camera is very bulky (Nikon D3200). I just read about pancake lenses. [more inside]
I've switched to an e-reader for most of my reading material, but I still love physical books and I enjoy getting new ones that I can somehow justify as unsuited to the screen. What are some books that really CANNOT be experienced properly in electronic format? [more inside]
I bought this piece (and a side view) today, but all the sellers knew about it was that it had been donated by a weaver. What bit of kit did I luck into? [more inside]
My five-year-old nephew likes building traps and contraptions. I know he uses tape and bungee cords, and presumably stuff from around the house. What could I give him for Christmas that would help support this hobby? Do you have kids that like to build? What're their favorite scraps and fancy things to create with? [more inside]
Please recommend well-written cozy mysteries that won't make me angry. [more inside]
I want to buy my partner a beginner's electronic drum kit. I know nothing. Please help. [more inside]
I'm in my early thirties and I don't think I've ever been creative. I just don't think I have much imagination for those kinds of things. But it's something I think I'd like in my life, and I'm a little bewildered where to start. Is creativity or imagination something I can learn (or be taught), or is it more innate?
Recently took up a sport, which I LOVE, but which my body doesn't seem well suited for. It has been suggested to me to seek orthopedic treatment, but I think it's an anatomical problem. What should I do? [more inside]
The World Chess Championship is tied after 12 games, and goes to tiebreakers on Wednesday. I haven't played chess in years, but do understand the rules and can anticipate and avoid fool's mate. How can I get up to speed to best appreciate Wednesday's tiebreaker? [more inside]
Looking for cool jigsaw puzzles, preferably 1000-2000 pieces and under $25. Trying to avoid Kinkadian landscapes and anything overly busy. [more inside]
