microRevolt is a knitting project targeted against brands that use sweatshop labour. They aim to get the message out by knitting garments with the offending companies' signature logos and their latest project was a petition against Nike, where petitioners would send in hand-knitted squares to represent their signatures. The squares where attached together to produce a 14-foot knit banner of the Nike swoosh. The banner was then presented to Nike Chairman, Phil Knight.

To take part in their future protests and craft against evil, check out their website.

How amazing are these Pencil Urchins by Jennifer Maestre? I love the way she groups together pencil leads of a similar colour.

A perfect decoration for any office desk and a great way to recycle worn down pencils.

It may not be the place where you would expect to find good craft tutorials, but HP's wiki Wet Paint has some nifty little projects.

I thought the tutorial for turning a Rolodex, among other things in to a cookbook was a great idea, though I love my Rolodex a little too much to do it myself.

It's a good thing that the mothers of these food-sculptors never told them to stop playing with their food or they would never have created this awesome Veggie Art.
