Thanks for all the love, guys. Smiley

The pattern is available on Ravelry here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/happypotamus-the-happy-hippo-crochet-pattern

It was love at first sight when I saw this pattern.  A friend gifted me her whole drawer of mismatched scrap yarn, which got me off to a great start.  The original was made of sock yarn, but since mine is all worsted, he's HUGE, about 2.5' from nose to rump.

Very cute!  Your color scheme is a lot more cohesive than mine.
4  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Paneer Masala Pizza on: January 05, 2014 08:28:13 PM
This is an idea that's been kicking around in my head for a while.  Today was my birthday, and I decided that for my birthday dinner, I would finally make the dream reality.

I used this crust recipe: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/bread-machine-pizza-dough/ though I'm anxious to try it again with the recipe here: http://www.101cookbooks.com/archives/001199.html.  Today, I didn't have the 12+ hours available to let the dough rest in the fridge.

The sauce is a paneer masala type sauce, made with onion, ginger, garlic, lots of Indian spices, tomato paste, and cream (lots of cream).  I simmered the paneer in the sauce, then strained it back out to use as a topping, along with some diced red onion and green peas (and a blanket of mozzarella, of course).

I baked it all at 400 for 25 minutes, and... it was awesome.  My only quibble is that next time, I'd rather have a thinner crust with a lighter flavor.  I used a dark beer in the crust recipe, and while it would have been awesome under, say, a sausage and tomato pizza, it was a leetle too much for the creamy/spicy sauce.  Still, an excellent proof of concept.  I'll definitely be making this again.

No, that one's a Ravelry pattern as well: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/fancy-goldfish-amigurumi

I used this one from Ravelry and found it clear and easy to use.  I like that it's easy to memorize the patterns for the parts, so after the first couple you can do them an auto pilot while you watch TV: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/amish-puzzle-ball-crochet-pattern

I've been slamming out the gifts over the past week or so.  On a whim, I made this goldfish for a friend, and the puzzle ball for my 18 month old.  I'm really happy with both of them.  I think a whole school of fish would be fun, all in different colors and patterns.

I loved this pattern when I found it on Ravelry, and thought it would be a great way to use up the odds and ends of different colord of Simply Soft I had lying around: http://knits4kids.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/Star.pdf.  As a result, my color scheme isn't quite as cohesive as the examples shown, but I still think it's cute and funky.  Hopefully the manflesh's sister will think so too, since I'm gifting it to her new baby girl, due in February!

Ooh!  Thanks for the honor, guys!  Glad you like them.  Cheesy

Gayle - Bonita has actually rolled out an adult version of the pattern that includes S, M, and L sizing to cover a range of women's shoe sizes from 6-10.  It uses all the same techniques as the baby pattern, so you could probably engineer it yourself if you're clever like that, but I opted to just buy the pattern.
