1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Baby gnome on: December 10, 2005 08:15:17 AM
I'm a beginner kitter and this is my first non scarf/rectangle object  Smiley
I used the tutorial from http://www.seasonsoriginals.biz/knit-baby-gnome.html It's really easy to understand, this project was really quick and I learnt a whole load of new knitting skills too.
Heres a pic:

He's so cute, I just need to give him a face.
2  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / 80,000 mini hats for innocent smoothies! on: November 27, 2005 06:44:32 AM
has anyone seen this yet?
http://www.innocentdrinks.co.uk/supergran/how_to.htm
knitting mini hats for drinks bottles might seem quite strange, but it is raising money for charity.

This seems like a good project for someone who has just begun to knit (like me) or wants to learn.
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Another memory wire bracelet... on: October 29, 2005 10:25:25 AM
I've seen so many memory wire bracelets/necklaces on this board, i bet you're all sick of them! but i loved all the ones Ive seen so much, i had to have a go myself. so here is my attempt



it was so quick and easy to do, i just made a loop, strung on some pearl beads(not real, plastic) and ended with another loop. I'm going to work on some more soon and I'll post pictures of them then Cheesy

(by the way, that picture makes my arm look like i have some crazy disease, i don't really, it was just how the picture got resized or something Wink)

5  COOKING / Dessert / mmmmmmmmm........mango and white choc chip muffins! on: May 20, 2005 12:20:18 PM
i found this recipie in one of my mums old dust-gathering cookbooks. the main reason it was dust-gathering is because the recipies are all in cups, and living in the uk, it just made the recipies more difficult. i just used a mug that my mum said was about the right size so the measurements werent completly accurate, but they were still the yummiest muffins i have ever made. also, i know a lot of you guys on crafster are american, and know how much a cup is so the recipie will be super easy for you. here it is:

makes 12 muffins.
preparation time 10 minutes
cooking time 20 minutes

ingredients:
2 1/2 cups self raising flour
1/2 cup soft brown sugar
3/4 cup white choc chips
1 cup chopped fresh mango (2 medium) OR 440g mango pieces, well drained
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup cream
90g butter, melted
1 egg, lightly beaten

method:
1. preheat the oven to 180 degrees c (sorry dont know what that is in other units!). sift the flour into a large bowl. stir in the sugar and choc chips and mix well. fold in chopped mango gently. make a well in the centre o the mixture.
2. add the combined milk cream butter and egg all at once. mix with a fork or rubber spatula until combined (do not over mix the batter should look quite lumpy). spoon the mixture into muffin cases in a muffin tin.
3. bake for 20 minutes, or until golden. leave to cool, then eat.

i hope someone has fun making and eating these! please tell me what you think. my family ate them all before i could get a photo, but if i make some more ill get a pic.

Huh the tennis ball has split about a quater of the way around. anyone have any ideas? i thought i coulde maybe make a little coin purse, but im not sure how. please give me some ideas!

hi! im kind of new to crafster, in the way that i only just joined, but ive been reading and loving everything on here for ages! i recently discovered all my old lego peices and ive been making random things out of the for about the past two weeks.
