I am a chocolate lover. Not sure how I came by it as my parents aren't fans, but my son has inherited by obsession with it. So it was only fitting that when I found this recipe that involved chocolate, we had a mother/son bake session.
I did change a couple things after eating it. I found that the graham part of the batter didn't have enough flavor, so in remaking, I would try to add more. For now, I just topped the cupcakes with graham cracker crumbs.
Also, my marshmallows baked up and out of the cupcakes more than in the recipe, which wasn't a big deal, but as marshmallows deflated when they come out of the oven, my cupcake sunk a little. For the better because I filled my little "dip" with some marshmallow creme for more flavor.
They were yummy (but I could eat almost anything if it was chocolate covered, so I'm a little bias)! Definitely recommend trying the recipe, though.
Okay, so this is probably a really dumb situation, but I'm about to break my needles lol
I've never done any two color knitting other than changing for rows...
So I wanted to do a POLICE LINE style scarf, but the wording is different. So I have the letter charted out, which "blocks" are a yellow stitch and which will be black for the letter.
And just fyi, I've started this scarf three or four times so far, getting about 20 rows in and starting over because I've messed something up.
ANYWAYS, I have the first letter, Z, all planned. And I start the letter on the RS...get about halfway through and my letter is backwards. ARGH. If I would see through the floats on my WS, my letter would be perfect. Fricky frick frick...I've been racking my brain as to how this was even possible lol...logic is failing me right now
Any help would be appreciated. As I said, I've never done two colors in a pattern, or worked a chart before, so I'm sure it's just my newbie-ness here.
SO...I decided to take my late fiance, Danny's, old shirts and make a quilt from them. But there were so many poor shirts that didn't make the quilt cut (ha...*giggle*) because they were just plain shirts. So after feeling bad for these clothes, I decided to upcycle them.
And here is the final product. It doesn't look at as good in the pics, it's a gold color...not so much yellow. I'm not sure whether I want to tuck all the ends in...I personally think it gives it a little something that the plain ole garter stitch lacks.
And a kinda blurry, but necessary action shot:
I'm going to be making a few more for Danny and I's son, and possibly his two other sons. So any hints, tips, criticism, advice...yaknow...all that stuff would be appreciated (:
Okay, so I'm sure there are plenty of posts about old clothes, but this one is a bit more specific, so I thought I'd go ahead and post.
My fiance passed away about 5 months ago, I've put away some of his better clothes. He was a police officer, so shirts with patches and his name, etc. Also some of his stuff from the Fire Department, and Rescue Squad that he volunteered on...I'll be using all of this important stuff to make a couple quilts.
However, I still have tons of socks, pants, shirts, sweaters and...everything. Things that weren't important so they won't be making it to the quilt...just wondering if there's anything I could make with it that would be something special for out son. He's almost 4, has way too many stuffed animals, so that's out. But anything else? Any other ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
I've been knitting for about a year now, so I'm not exactly a beginner, but darn close haha.
Up until now I was using just a regular set of Clover bamboo circular needles and I really liked them. However, my fiance recently passed, and things in out house got moved around because his children from another mother will obviously no longer be coming to stay. Moral of the story, I lost my knitting needles, too.
So, I was thinking of asking Santa (my mommy, teehee) to get me some better ones for Christmas. I was thinking, perhaps one of the Knit Picks sets. Of course, I'm 25, so friends my age that are into knitting are few and far between. I was wondering what people's opinions were on these particular needles? I like that you can switch back and forth from cable to standard ended needles. So are they good ones? And which do you prefer? Wood, nickel or acrylic?
Also would like to know what other options there are out there that people like. Any opinions would be greatly appreciated! (:
EDIT: Also, I see that they also have dpn sets in 4,5,6 and 8 inches. If I could only have one set, which would be the best? I don't use them often, but it's mainly because I don't want to go out and buy a new set all the time.
