1  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Tomato Vegetable Lentil Soup (can be vegan/vegetarian!) on: July 15, 2012 06:48:32 PM
I just made this, and it tastes so good! I ended up leaving out the onions and tomatoes (they're not my favourite vegetables) and instead added more carrots, and broccoli. I also added chicken. I love the flavour of it! Mine turned out to be more of a stew than a soup, but that's fine with me. Thanks for the great recipe! Smiley
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Too-short lace-trimmed dress into skirt! on: June 30, 2012 11:54:40 AM
So one day a few years back I was at a thrift shop when I found the neatest little dress. It was kind of short on me, but I liked the colour of the skirt, and it was cheap, so I bought it, thinking I could lengthen the skirt a little.
Then it sat in my closet. For three years.
Last week I finally bought enough lace to wrap around the bottom of the skirt, so I decided to finish up the dress. It looked like this (excuse the pyjamas):



But after trying it on again, I realized that the top of the dress really just didn't look right. So after some thought, I ripped the seams from the bodice and decided to make it a skirt. The dress already had a waistband complete with ties, so all I had to struggle with was shortening the zipper a little, but it actually wasn't so bad! And now I have this wonderful skirt to wear! (Those little things sticking out the bottom are just the ties on the back):



Sidenote: I definitely need to practice sewing more. My seams were always slightly crooked. Undecided

Thanks for looking! Comments/critiques always appreciated!

Not technically. I found the picture online, and then ran it through this website: http://www.microrevolt.org/knitPro/
And then it gave me a picture to follow. It's a really great site to use if you want to stitch a picture (at least, I found so).
4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Portal Cake Sign Cross Stitch on: May 17, 2011 03:28:47 PM
*insert cake joke here*
Lately, I've been slightly obsessed with Portal (probably since Portal 2 came out). One of my friends also plays it, so for his birthday I cross stitched him the cake sign (I plan to make myself the turret one soon...).



I wish I'd gotten a picture after I actually put it on its backing, but sadly this is the only picture I have of the final version. He loved it, though. Smiley
Thanks for looking!

Thank you so much for your help!! It worked really well!
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Mid-project cast on? on: July 23, 2010 03:28:15 PM
So maybe I'm way too ambitious, but I decided I wanted to try knitting the Broad Street Mittens (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall02/PATTbroadstreet.html). I got confused when I got to the part of the thumb gusset that says "Place these added stitches along with the purled stitch and the stitch at the end of the needle [14 stitches in all from the second needle] onto a holder, and co 11 stitches."

I have put the stitches on a holder, and have knit up to the increase, but I can't figure out how to cast on those eleven stitches. I'm knitting in the round with five DPNs, like the pattern says. Is there a certain type of cast on specific for mid-project cast-ons? I'm not mid-needle (I just finished knitting the second needle), so I don't know if that makes a difference.

Anything helps! Thanks in advance.
