1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Granny Square shirt on: July 06, 2014 12:01:20 PM
I just finished this baby and it is simply the most easy thing. The idea came when one of this days I wanted to create a project and I wanted to have a cool shirt, unfortunately I didnt have anything to wear and mostly all my shirts are warm because I used to think that Germany is too cold but! there have been some lovely 30 degrees days.

So here it is!



If you want to learn how to do this shirt is pretty easy, no gauge is needed, all you need to know is how to make a Granny Square.

On this shirt I did 21 rows in each peace and from there measure your arms and neck to have a proper opening.

3  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Help reading a pattern. on: August 05, 2013 10:10:05 AM
Hello everyone!
I hope everyone is doing great although is Monday  Grin

Well I've bought this magazine called Simply Crochet and I really want to make a poncho from this magazine. It's really cute, it's my first time I am adventuring myself on following the gauge and yarn that the pattern needs and the first time I am doing a "big" crochet project.

I know it might be a stupid question but I seriously don't have anyone to ask, and I learned to crochet by myself. So the question is The pattern says I have to make 3htr in ch 3 sp, do I have to do all 3 htr in one chain or 3htr in in each chain from the chain 3 space?

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Cowl and shoulder warmer on: February 22, 2013 05:01:16 AM
Hey everyone!
Hope everybody is having a wonderful day!
I just finished 2 projects this day and I wanted to share them you! I will leave the pattern on how I did both of my projects.



This is a cowl I made with 90% Merino wool 10% Acryl and I combined it with 100% mohair
The pattern goes like this:
Cast on 250 sts and work on the round until you have it on the desired width.



This shoulder warmer I used 100% merino wool and combined it with 100% Mohair I used a 5.0 mm knitting needle.
Cast on 53 sts
row 1. K3, P3 *to and from*
row 2. P3, K3 *to and from* Until you are able to wrap it around your shoulders
bind off and sew both ends
Then pick up the outside sts to form the shoulders, knit and work it as a round for about 10 cm and then knit 10 sts and K2 together.

7  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Easy Teriyaki Chicken Recipe on: February 04, 2013 02:08:40 PM
I found this recipe and I've done it for dinner. It is pretty easy and delicious.

INGREDIENTS

    3/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
    1/4 cup honey
    1 1/4 teaspoons peeled, grated fresh ginger (from about a 1-1/2-inch piece), grated on the small holes of a box grater
    1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs
    Freshly ground black pepper
    1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
    2 medium scallions, thinly sliced

INSTRUCTIONS

    Bring the soy sauce and honey to a simmer in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring often until the honey has completely dissolved, about 5 minutes. Add the ginger, stir to combine, remove from the heat, and set aside.
    If using chicken breasts, place them on a cutting board and cover with a sheet of plastic wrap. Use a meat mallet or a frying pan to gently pound them to a 1/2-inch thickness. Cut each in half so you have 4 pieces roughly the same size. (If using chicken thighs, no need to pound or cut.) Season both sides of the chicken with pepper.
    Heat the oil in a large frying pan over high heat until shimmering. Add the chicken in a single layer and cook without disturbing until browned, about 3 minutes. Flip and cook the second side until browned, about 3 minutes more.
    Reduce the heat to medium, slowly pour in the reserved sauce, and cook, flipping the chicken occasionally to coat in the sauce, until cooked through, about 3 minutes.
    Transfer the chicken from the pan, letting the excess sauce drip off, to a clean cutting board. Reduce the sauce in the pan over medium heat until slightly thickened, about 3 minutes more. Slice the chicken crosswise into 1/2-inch pieces. Place on a serving dish, top with the sauce, and sprinkle with the scallions.

8  EUROPE / GERMANY / Hello! on: February 04, 2013 09:46:00 AM
Hallo!
How are you? I hope everyone is doing great! I recently found about Craftster, and I am so exited that there is a group for Germany. I learned how to knit and crochet 2 years ago while I was learning German. I am from El Salvador, Central America and my husband is German. I go to Berlin and Nrnberg often and I live in Bayreuth. My question is, is there any monthly meetings in Germany? Like, to meet up with other craft colleagues and share your projects, crochet or knit together and drink a cup of coffee or tea?
It will be really cool if there is something like that, I have been looking for people to share the same interest in crafting, but I haven't found nothing like that. Does anyone have an idea if there are some meetings like that?

I hope I don't bother, and I wish all a beautiful day!
