Hey everyone,

I'm just trying to describe this coaster I have made, does any one know if this type of pattern has a name?It is stitched in k1, p3, k1, p3...etc then switching every 3 rows.


3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Slouch hat on: January 05, 2013 04:39:24 AM
I haven't posted here for some time but any way here's a hat I knitted a few weeks ago. I used a pattern by Coco knits. Free pattern here: http://cocoknits.com/downloads/free-patterns/cocoknits_SimpleSlouchyHat.pdf

I used 2 balls of purple Big Softie yarn, and only cast on 60 as most hats seem to fall off my tiny head!

Aah yeh that maybe it thinking of it - I decided to use my hand mixer as it was out when I usually just mix with a spoon. Thanks for that  Smiley
5  COOKING / Dessert / Rubbery Texture [in cupcakes] on: July 22, 2012 02:16:11 AM
I made some cupcakes yesterday, some that I have made before many times. But this time they came out with kind of a dense rubbery texture rather than the usual light fluffiness. This also happened about a year ago when I made a chocolate cake. I followed both recipes exactly, but the recipe isn't to blame as I have made both cakes many times before with no problem.

Does any one happen to have an explanation for this?

Many thanks,

Very nice!!! Looks like a nice work skirt and am very impressed that you did not need to add the extra triangle. I've needed to add that on all my jeans to skirt recons.

So I've been seeing a few of these mini lace skirts around in the shops and evertime I think I could so easily make this myself. So I did!

Wasn't completely from scratch as I used a 4 H&M skirt as a base - and then sewed the lace to it. But you could easily make that base by cutting the top part off a t-shirt.

I'm also quite lazy so I didn't put a zipper in . I just made the skirt somewhat stretchy by stretching the jersey skirt as I was sewing the lace on so the lace was ruffled.

The tutorial is on my blog: http://tashymakesstuff.blogspot.com/2012/02/lace-mini-skirt-tutorial.html

Any way here is the result:

Aah I see - the silly recipe I used only said a 15ml - I'll remember that next time!
9  COOKING / Dessert / Red Velvet cupcakes on: February 26, 2012 05:30:14 AM
So here is my first attempt at Red Velvet Cupcakes, and second attempt at cupcakes altogether (first one went horribly wrong!). Its a Nigella Lawson recipe and I found an adaptation here: http://www2.readersdigest.ca/food/blog/2010/11/09/nigella-lawsons-red-velvet-cupcakes/

Unfortunetely they didn't have the right type of food colouring in my local shop so they ended kind of brown, but hey-ho it's the taste that counts and they came out rather delicious!

And of course the cat did feel the need to help!
