* Learning to carve wood has been on my handicraft wish list for a long time. Not least because Frank inherited carving tools (or rather sculpting tools) from his grandpa. Finally I was able to finish a carving. It looks like it was made by a baby ;), but I'm happy anyway.
* I could not handle the knife in the Beavercraft carving kit, so I decided to buy another knife. Doug Linker says in one of his videos that the knife does not make the carver, and I agree because better knitting needles do not make the knitter, either, but I have noticed the difference a good knife makes. I can carve through the wood much easier and the cuts are much smoother! I am super happy with the Flexcut knife.
* By the way, the hedgehog made friends and explored the area right after he was born.
