    Just to let others know, I found Borax, Fels-Naptha soap, and Washing Soda all at Schnuck’s in the laundry aisle. I was so happy!

    I love your “learn how to make pasta” resolution. Once you start, you won’t want commerical pasta ever again. I have a recipe for pasta dough, I know it is only Semolina flour and eggs, but I forget the amounts. I’ll find it and send it your way. I also have a super inexpensive pasta press/cutter that I LOVE! It only takes about 3 minutes to make the pasta and another 5 minutes to cook it. It is wonderful! Then you can experiment with flavors and colors, etc. Do it! Do it! You’ll wonder why you didn’t do it sooner!

    One of my resolutions is to knit my first pair of socks. I am swatching now, but still trying to narrow down which pattern.

    I am also looking into the green laundry ideas. You’ve got me very intrigued…

    Hi Meghan,
    I think there’s a good alternative to leaving all those yarn ends dangling till later. I love to splice yarn. Spit splicing works with wool, but regular splicing works just as well. Here’s a good link to show you the method. Hope it helps.

    Here’s the recipe I use for homemade pasta:
    1 1/3 cups of semolina flour
    2/3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
    1/4 tsp salt
    2 eggs at room temp
    1 1/2 tbs water

    You can mix it in q food processor with the metal blade. Mix until dough balls form then run the dough through a hand crank pasta machine.

    Or you can mix by hand. Make a mound with the flour and salt then dig out a deep well. Crack the eggs in the well. Mix the eggs in with a fork and slowly incorporate the dry mound ingredients. Knead the dough for about 8-9 minutes. Then run it through the pasta machine.

    Pasta machines are pretty cheap and you may be able to find one at thrift store. (Like you need another reason to go thrifting…)

    I really do love making pasta. It is so inexpensive, quick and delicious!

    I’d love to hear what you think about the laundry detergent after you’ve been using it for a while. :)

    I like using a Russian join at times when spit splicing doesn’t work.

    I was going to buy the ingredients for the laundry detergent, and was wondering what “fels naptha soap” was, so googled it. Have you read the wikipedia page?
    The health considerations are kind of scary… I’m not so sure I want to try this now. :(
