21  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Felt In-N-Out Burger (for Lebowski swap) on: September 10, 2006 02:41:38 PM
Hey there!

I made this for the Big Lebowski swap...my version of the In-N-Out Burger so enjoyed by the Walter and Donny (and the Dude?):


Me enjoying the felt tastiness:


Sorry the pix are so big.

The sewing is far from professional but I like it. Might make one for me'self, for a pincushion. Thanks for looking!
22  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Irish Hiking Baby Hat on: August 15, 2006 05:27:47 PM
In the tradition of the Irish Hiking Scarf, I've made a little cabled baby hat. I cast 84 stitches on size 7 straights, did 2x2 rib for a few inches and then switched to the Irish Hiking pattern (7 twists). Squared it off, seamed, and added tassels a la Sprout from www.magknits.com. It's bigger than I expected, but I like it, and hopefully the almost-mom will.



I can give slightly more precise instructions if needed. This is the first project I've "winged" and it's not perfect.
23  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / GRR! on: August 10, 2006 05:40:58 AM
I must say, in just a quick moment of ranting, how very annoying it is that the Fall 06 IK issue is on the shelves at my local Borders WRAPPED IN PLASTIC. Like porn. And I know a lot of knitting people will say that it's better than porn, but I am not about to pay $7 for something I can't leaf through. The pictures on the site just aren't enough.

Okay, whew. I am done. Happy Thursday, everyone!
24  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Intarsia chart - how to determine how many colors? on: August 08, 2006 01:39:35 PM
Hey there,

I have watched the Intarsia video on www.knittinghelp.co m and feel ready to try intarsia. The tough thing is that what I want to try, the Om Scarf, (http://www.itsbyerin.com/ then click "knit knat") is a pretty curly little pattern. I don't know how to determine how many bobbins/butterflies of yarn I should start with, and where to go from there. Can I carry (i.e. fair isle) some very short floats, like 2 stitches?

Please advise. Thanks!
25  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Baby Hats for Save The Children on: July 25, 2006 06:12:49 PM
Not sure if you knitters/crocheters have heard of this, but the international health organization Save the Children is putting out an APB for baby hats. These hats are used to conserve crucial body heat for at-risk newborns in the developing world.

Read all about it here:
www.savethechildren .org, scroll down to Caps to the Capital

These are my contributions so far:


They are a very quick knit, and addictive. Please spread the word. Save some little lives!
26  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Recipes for a Dutch oven, e.g. Le Creuset? on: July 18, 2006 01:07:46 PM
Hey there,

I just splurged (and it was quite a splurge...will be eating ramen for a while) on the 5.5 quart Le Creuset round dutch oven. I want to make it an oft-used piece, but so far have only thought of making chicken casserole type things in it: Chicken Cacciatore, Coq au Vin, etc.

What have y'all made in your dutch ovens that you can recommend?
27  COOKING / Dessert / Candy that keeps well? on: May 31, 2006 07:25:36 AM
Hey there,

I am getting married in July out in Portland, OR (we live in DC). We're doing a Candy Buffet, which I am ridiculously excited about, and for the moment I am gathering ideas of what candy to use.

I saw a post where someone (Lothruin) mentioned how nice it is to have homemade candy, and having made some candy in my life, I was interested. Unfortunately, I won't have the time or space to make candy out in Oregon, so I'm looking for recipes/ideas of things to make here and either ship or bring with me. So, something that lasts for a long time and doesn't require refrigeration.

Is this even possible? would love some ideas, and thanks!
28  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / small cabled gift on: May 18, 2006 12:52:40 PM
A friend is leaving work abruptly, which majorly sucks. She was one of the few people here I could talk knitting with, and I want to make her a small goodbye gift. She seemed impressed by cables.

Any ideas?
29  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Brown pants and green cord - what to make? on: May 11, 2006 09:25:17 AM
Hey there,

Hope this is the right board; I'm new to the sewing end of Craftster.

I know my way around a machine but am not sure what to do with some things I recently picked up: 2 long green corduroy (sp?) jumpers -- and that's the American jumper pinafore type thing, not a sweater -- and 2 pairs of Old Navy pants in the exact same dark brown color of heavy cotton. No patterns or pockets, just good heavy fabric begging to be refashioned.

Now all of these items are too small for me, so there's not making a short dress or a cool pants-skirt. I know there are loads of ideas on Craftster but am not sure where to start. Help?
