It is amazing what you can do with what you have on hand. Good thinking!
We have a padlock on one of our outbuildings - the one we keep our car in in the winter - that gets wet and then freezes. We tried all kinds of sprays and different locks and nothing was satisfactory. Finally I put about 1/2 C uncooked rice in a net bag. We put it in the microwave for a few seconds, it keeps your fingers warm while you walk out to the barn, hold it on the lock a little while and the key will go in and the lock opens.
I used a rubber hot water bottle for my recent injury, I had to get a heating pad for the low back but I much preferred the water bottle for the torn muscles in my leg as it had that gentle comforting weight that wrapped around so nicely.
I think a knice knitted cover for your emergency heat pack is a brilliant idea!

I think I will continue to use it when we go on road trips, out on the patio.
It is portable!
I had some water bottles in the freezer (use for cooler) well I grabbed the handle of pot that was in the oven yoke what a burn.
Grabbed a frozen bottle , put a cotton sock on it held in to it and dh put the other sock over my hand.
It looked strange but it worked great!

This article addresses it.

I have most yarn in plastic storage bins and some finished items in the bags, but not vacuumed. I think it is more important to keep critters out than it is to save space. I don't really have that much, but enough to last my lifetime.

Re the cedar chest for storage, I have one that is 60 years old and is used more for mementos that anything else. I do know that if you store fabric in cedar, it needs to be for a short time (6-8 mo.) and then aired or cleaned. For things like quilts, they need to be in acid-free wrapping to prevent the acid in cedar from touching the fabric. Cedar is for seasonal storage, IMO.

My yarn has never had a "critter" problem, your article is about clothing, NOT yarn.
If someone has a "critter" problem with vacuum sealed bags?
The critters were already there to begin with.
My yarn is just as nice coming out of the vacuum bags as it was going in.
Totes only work if you tape all around the edge to seal it.
Mice can get in an opening as thin as a dime.

The article you put up has some untruths, I store feather duvets in warm weather in vacuum seal bags. I put two in a xlarge bag
The squish down amazing thin.
I also store extra comforters and blankets in them.
When I take them out I give them a good shake and the fluff right back up.

DH had a large gingerale soda bottle (2 litre).
Filled it with hot water wrapped in a teatowel.
It worked great, it was still a little warm this morning.
We joker and called it my hillbilly hot water bottle.
I am going to knit or crochet a cover for it.

May I suggest ignoring her posts.
You give her control over you every time you post in response or even read her posts.
Please consider this:
She controls YOUR time, YOUR energy, YOUR emotions, YOUR every thought, each time
you focus on her.

It's YOUR choice to allow her to take control or not.
If you ignore her, she has no control over you.
Think about it.

You have been here less than a year. Go back and check some of her posts.
You do not know the her history here!

President Donald Trump may lose control of his tax filings after years of defying a modern presidential norm of disclosing them to the public, Bloomberg News reports.

A federal judge in New York ruled that Trump can’t stop his accountants, Mazars USA LLP, from turning over his taxes and other financial documents to Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr., whose office is investigating whether the Trump Organization falsified business records related to hush-money payments.

More information is available on the Bloomberg Terminal.

I read the posts from 2015 about compressing yarn but wanted to double check in 2019 in case someone has had problems since then.
I have boxes and boxes of acrylic yarn that will hold me over for about 4-5 years, if I don't buy anything else...ha!
Will there be any damage if I store them in those bags where you vacuum out the air for that long a time?


I have much of my yarn vacuum sealed.
I check it every couple of months to see if it still sealed.
Occasionally I need to reseal it.
If it lets go again I just buy another bag and repack and seal.
It keeps the yarn fresh, and pops right back into shape

Actually, the article is "political," in that it references 'a 30 year diet of Fox and Rush' as a factor/cause of bigotry and concludes that paragraph describing those listeners as 'wannabe white separatists.' That's using a pretty broad political brush on a very large audience.

As far as the article applies to actual racists or bigots, the points made may be justified; however, I do not believe the majority of white Americans are actually racists, bigots, or white separatists. Being against illegal immigration does not make one a white separatist.

The US admits about one million legal immigrants every year. What other country does this? Our policies have not changed significantly, although I think there is a need; rather, there is pressure on our government to enforce our existing laws to stop illegal immigration. The key word left out the article was "illegal" as it pertains to immigration, leaving the reader to conclude that those mean, white people are against anyone coming here. It's just not true.

That diatribe may make some readers feel better, but "brilliant" ? I think not.
