21  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: So, I made even more Pickled Eggs! I'm obviously addicted. on: November 25, 2011 03:22:44 AM
Sweet! My BF likes pickled eggs (I have to admit I never tried one - shame on me) but I never thought of making them myself! What a great idea! To be honest, the Balsamic Vinegar one on your blog looks quite ... surreal and intriguing and I'm not sure if it is appetizing or not! haha! I think I might have to try that out! Thanks for sharing!

23  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: Ladies: thrush free bath products? on: November 09, 2011 12:58:44 AM
I'm not a soaper either and I apologize to MareMare if she has closed that topic due to the medical issue, but I'd like to say this:
 i'd not make anything for your mum and tell her not to take a bath but shower instead if possible. I've been plagued with thrush many times and bathing does not help, I think it makes it even worse. From my experience, and since this is not any real medical advice in my eyes i think I'm allowed to say this: yogurt did help me a lot to get my system balanced. Internal application. And by that I don't mean orally - but eating yogurt helps, too, of course. Natural yogurt tho, no strawberry or so. When your system is out of balance e.g. pH and bacterial composition which can happen easily e.g. if you have to take antibiotics, the thrush can grow easier. The yogurt cultures are similar and help to restore the system and help to make the environment unfriendly for the thrush and it will retreat. You don't wanna get any soap near there while the thrush is growing!
Good luck to your mum.

25  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Aeolain Shawl - problem with edge set up chart on: November 02, 2011 03:23:47 AM
Hi Nven,

I had a look at the pattern. The shawl looks beautiful, but I'd be put off by all the different charts.

The only increases are made at the edges, that is the only place where a YO is not together with a SSK or a K2tog. So whatever you increase in the centre always has to be "neutralized".

There are three combinations of your increases/decreases:

YO and SSK
YO and K2tog
YO, centre decrease, YO

each time the increases are "neutralized" by decreases. You always make up to the same number of stitches.

I think if you try to imagine those sets of two or three stitches as one unit of two or three stitches respectively, it might be easier to understand. Each time there is a YO there has to be a SSK or a K2tog right next to it. Whereever there is a S2KP there have to be TWO YOs right next to it, one on each side.

I think the problem is the red box and you have to go back to the beginning of the row within the red box which causes a break in the thinking. Try to see it go more in a fluent round.... damn I sound like my flute teacher when she tells me to "let go", haha! it wouuld be easier if the red line as a marker for the repeat would be in the middle of like maybe a k6 or so, rather than cutting through a unit of increases and decreases.

I do hope that makes sense! It is a bit abstract I'm afraid  Wink
Good Luck!

i started cooking!!!


Those are PaleAngelLex's Hot Crushed Potatoes. I made a Tsaziki to go with them, because unfortunately the potatoes I had at home were super-floury and a bit dry. But they turned out so loooovely and crispy! Will make again for sure (with better tatties)!


DesignVigilante's Ground Turkey Sloppy Joes - tasted so yummy! Love the green peppers with the turkey!
30  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / jellyfish-dress on: October 01, 2011 06:43:43 AM
So, this is the first time I'm brave enough to show some photos of something i sew!

I used a pattern, Kwiksew 3718, very easy, and some cheap denim fabric (next time I'll spend a bit more on the fabric, it is a little bit stiff and does not really drape at all). 

I'm quite happy how it turned out, BUT it looked a bit boring, even for ME and usually I do normally wear more the plain kind of clothes.

So i decorated it with two jellyfish! I used Pebeo Setacolour Pearl, it is slightly shimmery and that is why the photos look a bit odd, my legs are not really THAT pale altho I really got hardly any sun this summer. I used freezer-paper stencils for the bigger parts and just a fine brush for the thinner tentacles. It was the first time I painted on fabric and used stencils and so on, and apart from a few little blotches it turned out not too bad I think.

here are the photos, i hope they are not too big to be posted.







Thanks for looking
Smiley
