NYTimes scones

As soon as I saw these, I knew I had to make them. I couldn’t find dried strawberries so I used blueberries instead. It was so delicious and simple that I think I will be making these often.

Also, this *large* pat of butter was completed unnecessary. The scones are perfectly buttery on their own.

Sweater Maintenance

I am currently in the process of putting away my winter clothes. Before I store my sweaters, I make sure they are clean and ready to go for when I open them next winter. This also helps prevent any potential moth infestation.

First, I use an electric defuzzer to remove pills. I then put like colors together in a laundry bag and wash on delicate (with cold water, low spin), using a detergent formulated specifically for sweaters. I remove and roll the sweaters in a towel to remove excess water, and then lay flat to dry. One of my favorite tips is to check the sweater measurements as it is drying. I find that it usually shrinks a bit and it is easy to stretch back into place when wet.
