Project Name: 10th Doctor fingerless gloves
Project Link: n/a
Brief Description:  I started these ages ago with a different pattern and then frogged them and got 80% done and ready to submit them for the month of Nov. in the Fall nerd battles but Thanksgiving and everything happened and they got put aside and I missed the deadline to submit anything for Nov. So....I finished them this month! I made bow ties for them but really didn't like how they came out, so...I decided to just forgo the bows.

>>mistress batty..I love that stitch! It looks like one I could do  Grin Let me guess. Single crochet, chain two, then chain up for the next row? Or did you do it flat and then have a seam? If that is it, I think I could figure out all kinds of neat things to make like that. I don't crochet often, but I wish to get back into it. All the neat projects here like yours are so inspiring.

I love the colors you chose for your water bottle cozy. And it looks a good project to use up scraps, too.

~T


Thank you!

This is the easiest stitch ever. lol  I found it here on this blog post -  http://adaliza.com/2012/01/30/between-the-lines/

It's UK terms in that post......
so the US terms ....

sc 1, ch 1

Go along one side with a color, ch 1, turn, and then start with a new color.

now when you're doing a sc it'll be in a ch sp. and vice versa.

lol That's it.  I did it flat.  I used 11 colors in total for the one I did. Mine is braided ties -- lol instead of cutting off my yarn ends, i braided them so i could tie the cozy onto the bottle.

I hope that helps & makes sense! lol

Prompt: October Battle - Yeti
Team: Multimedia
Bonus Points: N/A
Project Name: water bottle cozy
Project Link: N/A
Brief Description: The yeti may enjoy the cold weather, but not me! I have my water bottle always at my desk with me but it freezes my fingers. I hate trying to type and work when my fingers on my right hand are cold and achy. Sucks. Soo....I found this neat crochet stitch that I like....picked a color scheme...and boom! No more cold fingers.

UFO sighting is a prompt on its own, though any project can get UFO bonus points.  It's an extra UFO opportunity!

Thank you so much!

I have a quick question. I'm trying to make sure I've got things right before I post my projects.

Okay.....so the UFO sighting.....is this something I can submit on it's own.
Like, any UFO can earn points (plus the water UFO bonus points) all on it's own.

OR

Is UFO something that isn't a standalone project, but it HAS to fit under another category ....like picking team Yeti, and then getting bonus points for it being a UFO.

Prompt:  October - Chupacabra
Team: Multimedia
Project Name: Habichuelas y Arroz Con Gandules  (Beans and Rice with Brown Pigeon Peas)
Brief Description:
Chupacabra originated in Puerto Rico! When I was in middle school, I started taking Spanish. My neighbor's, their dad was from Puerto Rico and his parents still lived there. They were planning a trip to PR and they said I could come with them if I bought my own ticket and could learn how to roll my R's (which I couldn't do and needed to for class).
  Puerto Rico was awesome. I'm really grateful that I got to go and experience a different culture. Omg, it was so beautiful!
  But their Grandma, omg could she cook. I loved her cooking there, and I loved when she would visit my neighbors back here in VT and she would make the most delicious stuff. (I still need to find a recipe for this corn pudding she made).
 
  So.....I made Puertorican food for dinner! These are two of the basic recipes I remember Grandma making, that taste just so good.

I made Arroz Con Gandules  -  which is rice with brown pigeon peas and
(http://myloveforcooking.com/recipes/arroz-con-gandules/)

Habichuelas which is beans....but the beans actually have a lot going on - a tomatoey sauce, potatoes, capers, olives, etc.
(http://www.elboricua.com/habichuelas.html)

 The rice recipe I followed to a T, the beans recipe I substituted the cured ham for some pulled pork I made in the crock pot.  The pork shoulder was cooked with sofrito, rotel, adobo, salt, pepper, Sazonador Total (another seasoning mix by Goya), onion powder, garlic powder......and just let it cook until it melts in your mouth. lol

lol please ignore the full bowl. I didn't eat all afternoon, just waiting until this was all finished and ready. 'cause....it's simply delicious lol
