There is a raw foods vegan restaurant in Guelph, ON that uses them (exclusively, I hear). I've had my eye on them (for home use), but am going to try making one. If that really doesn't work out, then I'll be more willing to shell out the cash!

I've read a bunch about kefir tonight, and I didn't come across an answer to this. I have a question that's still unanswered as well: when I wasn't doing well on milk products, I threw my kefir grains in a jar of water and stored it in a part of my fridge that gets very cold (many items freeze there). I wonder if the grains are still okay. Probably best to try them out, I guess!

I'm currently making a 16" doll (kit from Dancing Rain Dolls) for my 6 year old, but I have a feeling it's going to be well used, and the next one I'll make would ideally be like Jess.

Tung oil is often used to finish children's toys, and is from the seed of the nut of tung trees. Other nut oils, such as walnut, can also be used for finishing wood. Food sensitivities or allergies will be a consideration of course.
I only have fibre reactive dyes. How could I adapt this method for those? Here's the Dharma recommendation, but it won't work for the rainbow silk as is: http://www.dharmatrading.com/info/dyeing_wool.html

I have two cast iron "food choppers", one of which I tried this morning to grind Kamut, without much success. Anyone else used these for grinding grains?
Thanks mama! sbgrace, I didn't know eggs reduce absorption of iron.
