I picked up the leg warmer I started knitting nearly 2 years ago Smiley  maybe I'll actually finish it and it's match before the summer Wink 

what kind of legwarmers are you knitting?  All the patterns I've knitted are super boring, I'd like to find a better one.

oh gosh, I just cast on  ( I think) 55 stitches, and knit them up on dpn's.  I started with the ply in ribbing, then switched to knit alternating the singles when I get bored with that color.

Here's a pic, it might be more explanatory then my words:
single, ply, single

terrible photo booth pic of it: (excuse my kid. he insisted on being in the pic Smiley )

304  Tunisian and lace headband in Crochet: Completed Projects by Belladune on: January 06, 2011 07:21:28 AM
 Cheesy
 I had fun doing this, and I've now got an awesome headband!
I used my own homespun (z twist) single laceweight (with it's slubs here and there Smiley )
The flowers were my own design, but I used techniques I learned while learning to make lace snowflakes.
The band that goes around the top and sides is Tunisian pearl stitch.  I love the way when done in a single row it gives bars with spaces between.




The back was done in the basic Tunisian crochet stitch.


I made an anklette as well, but it's twisted and I'm out of time to make another :/

Hope you like it!  and don't forget to Vote!

does this count as destashing?  I used ingredients I had on hand (except the coconut, I needed one of those)   and it's white!  And it might go well in J_kieviet's Arctic themed birthday party! 

I posted it and the recipe here:

306  Lemon Coconut Snowball cake in Dessert by Belladune on: January 03, 2011 12:56:22 PM
For my friends birthday, I made her a snowball cake!

I used this recipe:
http://www.marthastewart.com/recipe/lemon-variation

Everything was from scratch, even the coconut! I even used the frosting recommended but I made one small change.  When I cracked the coconut to make the shredded coconut that covers it I saved the liquid and condensed it.  I then used that and added enough water to make the required 1/3c water. 





this is where I got the pan I used.  http://www.sweetbakingsupply.com/   They don't appear to have it anymore though... :/

this is the pan I used:  http://www.wilton.com/store/site/product.cfm?sku=2105-6506

Enjoy looking at it!  It's delicious!!

this is my stash.  I have no idea how to use Adobe photoshop elements, so this could be terrible.. so who knows... it may work out okay, and you may be able to see it all...   Don't laugh at my terrible layout.. I just still don't get that program......



as you can see it's all spread out. and I totally forgot to take one pic of the fabric scraps in a large drawer in my dresser....

309  Red lentil bread in Recipes and Cooking Tips by Belladune on: December 29, 2010 12:35:07 PM



RED LENTIL BREAD
1/2 cup red lentils
1 cup water
~In a large pot, cook the red lentils for about 30 minutes.

4cups of lukewarm water
4 tblsp sugar
1/4 cup oil
2 tblsp active dry yeast
approximately 12 cups flour (this can be a mixture of whole wheat and unbleached all purpose if you so wish)

Combine water oil sugar and yeast and allow to proof for 10 minutes. Cup by cup, add the flour. Start off with a whisk, Before it becomes to thick to whisk, add the cooked lentils. Once it becomes to thick to whisk dive in with both hands until well combined. Don't use all the flour at once. Once you get a semi wet dough turn it out on to the counter (lightly dusted with flour) and begin to knead. Knead like you've never kned before. for at least 10 minutes, but I recommend longer. Once yo've done this, put the dough back in your bowl and allow to rise for 2 hours. Don't rush the rise!!! this will give you nice fluffy bread!
Now it's time to punch it down and shape into loaves. Preheat your oven to 400`F. What I find works best is to cut the dough into approximately even pieces and flatten into rectangles. Then I roll the rectangles into loaves. Place into your bread pans and let rise again for at least 30 minutes. I generally forget about it and end up letting it rise for 45 minutes to an hour.  So long as the bread is at least doubled in size you are safe to put it into your oven. Bake it for 25 minutes.
Pull it out of the oven, enjoy the smell of fresh bread but wait at least 20 minutes before you cut into it. Slather it with butter and enjoy!

For more pics check out the blog, but all the info on how to make the bread is here in words. Smiley
