5  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Mochi? on: February 22, 2008 09:15:29 AM
Okay so this is my one of my first times venturing far from the crochet forums but i figured this might be the best place to get some answers.

Mochi/ Mochi balls? what are they exactly i have been told that they are icecream kind of... and that they are a rice flour ball. so which are they?
i have never really heard of these until i heard of Pinkberry. I live in South Florida, a good solid hour with no traffic from Miami beach, so going to any of the "nicer" Japanese restaurants that offer them is out of the question.

If i must i will make them to figure out what exactly they are, thats what led me here.

if you know a simple recipe than i would love to try it out.

9  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / short and maybe not so sweet.... on: January 28, 2008 05:31:11 AM
Hi Ive been reading all these boards since October i got my Happy Hooker book in December and i am finally trying several patterns. i have printed the corrections page and the help page that explains the "right front" of the short and sweet but am having problems with it before row 6.  i am making the large and am having problems with my shell count and the book and explanation page only has the diagram with 1 shell. could it be because I'm left handed i just have it all backwards? i don't know i might just frog the whole thing and try something else/. any help is appreciated!
