Check out some unique Ramen recipes here.

I'm Crushin'

Ah, October and the beginning of the Wine Country Craze...Recently we got a fun postcard from Bethlehem Valley winery, announcing their "Crush Party" on Sunday, October 9, from noon-5 p.m.

Among the highlights: a tasting of the 2002 Norton (rated 87 by Wine Spectator magazine), food, wine, hayrides, vineyard tours—and here's the good part.

"mini horses, full size cows"

DIY or Die

If you're looking for a little bit of an underground shopping alternative—the holidays, kids, are not as far off as they seem, and you can always find things you need just for you, too!—we recommend marking October 22 in your calendar (also, can we plug the Urban Almanac? Love it, love it, love it).

That's the date for the "Rock'n'Roll Craft Show," at Junk Junkie, and flyers promise jewelry, scarves, journals, hats, zines, towels, wallets and much more.

RNR! It's like DIY that you don't actually have to do *your*self.

A Cheap Yarn

It will come as no surprise to those who know me that I heart "The Dollar Spot" at Target. Lots of it is junk I don't need, but I'll note that today, the offerings have expanded to include numerous skeins of yarn of the "fun fur" and "ladder" varieties (albeit generic versions), along with some very frail-looking bamboo needles and small instructional booklets. You know the Knit Revolution has arrived when even the Dollar Spot's hip to it.

As someone who knits constantly, I'm pretty excited to give these varieties a whirl. At a buck a skein, there's no chance of stash-builder's remorse.
