Knitting and documentaries

These cold evenings have been spent rolled up in blankets on the couch knitting dishcloths (an easy mindless pattern) and watching documentaries like Burt's Buzz and Tiny.

Burt's Buzz - I'm a big fan of Burt's Bees products, from the old stand by lip balm and hand salve to the newer face wipes and moisturizer. I had no idea there was a real Burt. I was surprised to learn about the story of this reclusive beekeeper and the drama behind the creation of a billion dollar company. The best part was seeing Burt's rustic cabin and watching him make a fire. "A good day is when no one shows up... and you don't have to go anywhere." - Burt Shavitz

Tiny - This is a documentary about the Tiny House movement. It follows a couple as they build a 120 square foot house. There were also interviews with other people that were already living in their Tiny Houses. I just read about a Tiny House in Rochester. I think it is an interesting movement and great for people looking to downsize their lives. Not my thing however.
