Ooo yes, I love making these (though until now I only knew them as Wool Eater blankets). They're my go-to baby blanket because they whip up so quickly and turn out so soft. I love your color choices!
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Apartment Wall Decor on the Cheap on: June 01, 2010 09:34:23 AM
So I live in an apartment and I'm not allowed to put any holes of any kind in the walls and being the slacker I am I've yet to invest in command hooks/strips.  

About a year ago my boyfriend got me a print of one of Night Windows by Edward Hopper and I never hung it up because I wanted to get a frame for it so it wouldn't get ruined.  Yesterday BF found a big rectangle of plexiglass left over from a project and I whipped out the contact paper I bought at Goodwill ages ago (cause I just knew there would be a use for it) and fashioned a "frame" to protect my print and stick it to the wall!  The edges need to be trimmed a bit but I'm psyched that I can actually put things on my bare boring walls!

Ooo it's so lovely, I think it would look great with some short gloves!

This is the most beautiful wedding dress I've ever seen!  I'm sure your friend will look stunning in it!
5  COOKING / Dessert / Re: Help with Martha Stewart's Alexis's brown sugar chocolate chip cookies? on: May 14, 2009 07:51:20 PM
While I haven't used this specific recipe, I've had the same problems with my cookies going completely flat when they're baked, and I've had two problems causing mine:
#1, baking soda / powder being expired.  You'd be amazed at the difference this makes.  I don't use it often enough, so usually one of mine's expired.  Also, I'm not by any means an expert baker, so I don't know if this is frowned upon, but sometimes if one of mine is expired i'll add a bit of the other (if it's not expired too) and it's helped them not be so unbearably flat.

#2, over-mixing the butter & sugar -- I've found that just mixing the butter and sugar together works fine as the mixture gets stirred completely together as other ingredients are added (obviously this is useless as you've already made a large batch of dough).

I LOVE this! The colors in it remind me of the ones in Lion Brand EZ Stripe in Jellybean.  This is a great use of granny squares and I might have to get started on something similar soon.  Thanks for a bit of inspiration =).

"Cold Chocolate" which is 1T sugar, 1T cocoa mixed into a glass of cold milk--not the same as chocolate milk at all!  You have to mix it really well but it is DELICIOUS! It mixes better if you stir the cocoa and sugar together and add a bit of milk to make a paste before
adding all the milk.

Yogurt on Ritz Crackers -- any flavor, it's all delicious

Mudpuddle -- Hershey's Syrup & PeanutButter mixed into milk and heated

Backwards toast -- not sure if this one is good for the toaster so I rarely do it anymore, but you butter the bread before you toast it
and it comes out kind-of like a slice of bread from grilled cheese

Sweet potato fries -- not that weird around here, but if you have never had them, they are DELICIOUS.

There's not a name for this, and I'm pretty sure I'm the only person ever to do it but if you hold a metal spoon filled with chocolate chips over an unscented candle (it will get a bit dark on the bottom, so not a nice spoon), and melt the chocolate chips, the bottom will get cooked and taste like the richest brownie ever.

Ranch dressing with crushed red pepper mixed, especially good on breadsticks

LOVE this.  It looks good enough to eat!

Absolutely gorgeous! The yarn and color are perfect.  I've been working on my first shawl for quite some time now and it is not anywhere as lovely as yours. This is really beautiful.

Genius, and yet, so simple. Why don't I ever think of these things? I always try to make things with my left over balls of yarn and then pull them out when I realize that it wasn't a good idea / I don't have enough yarn.  Ages and ages ago before I learned to crochet, I learned to "finger knit" (which was NOTHING like actual knitting) and made a hugely long fat chain and never did anything with it.  This would have been a good use for it.
