1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / baby blankets for twin boys? on: September 15, 2008 08:24:05 PM
A friend of the family is having twins, twin boys. I want to make some baby blanket, but I have no idea what pattern to use. So I'm posting to craftster for ideas!  I need something that would work up fairly quick, not be so challenging that I'm pulling my hair out, but not so easy that I'm going to be bored making two of them. Nothing with eyelets, nothing with fun fur, give me your best shot. I'm cross-posting this to crochet.

3  COOKING / Dessert / My Peanutbutter Chocolate-chip Cookie Recipe on: May 06, 2008 11:53:24 AM
So this is my peanutbutter chocolate-chip cookies, adapted, but improved, from the back of a Jiff jar, there super yummy. Everybody who has tried them really likes them, even if they aren't big cookie fans, or peanut butter fans.

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees F
Ingreidients
1 and 1/4 cups of dark brown sugar
1 and 3/4 cups of smooth peanut butter
1/2 cups of margarine, NOT BUTTER
3 tablespoons milk
2 tablespoons vanilla or imitation vanilla
1 egg
1 and 3/4 cups of flour
3/4 of a teaspoon of baking soda
1 whole bag of Ghirdeli (sp?) milk chocolate chips, this is important, these chips are bigger than other chips, USE MILK CHOCOLATE, this is aprox. 2 cups.

Combine margarine, peanutbutter milk and vanilla. Combine until everything is encorporated, but if there's some lumps of margarine, that fine.
Add and blend in the egg throughly.
Add the flour and baking soda and stir until combined.
Add chocolate chips and to get them evenly distributed through the dough.
To bake cookies roll the dough into balls aprox. the size of golfballs with at least a couple of chips. Place these balls about an inch apart. Bake for 9 minutes. Recipe yield about 3 dozen.
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitting nmemonics? on: April 13, 2008 11:59:11 AM
So on a whim, I thought it would be cool to collect up all those poems for teaching kids how to knit and turn it into a kid's song. Everybody's grandma has a different one, so let's hear them!

Edit, these are the ones i have so far.

Go in the front door,
And grab your scarf,
Then take it outside,
Before the cat barfs.

In through the front door,
Sneak around the back,
Peek through the window,
And off jumps Jack.

Under the fence,
Catch the sheep,
Back under and out,
Off we leap!

In the woods goes the hunter,
Round the tree goes the dog,
Out pops the rabbit,
And off they run!
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / suggestions for a skein of lamb's pride? on: March 27, 2008 09:18:18 AM
So I have a leftover skein of lamb's pride bulky. I'd make a hat or something, because ususally I really like lamb's pride, but the yarn is hot pink, which i don't ever wear, any suggestions for something?
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / How wide should a shawl be? on: November 24, 2007 05:40:44 PM
So I have never knit a shawl before, and I was wondering aproximatly how wide a shawl should be, both on average and in relation to the wearer. For general informaiton my shawl is triangle shaped and the recipiant is about 4'9'' and has a 5'1'' armspan.
7  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Jayne-along on: November 04, 2007 09:11:08 PM
So, I have very short hair, unlike last winter and am planning to make a couple hats for winter so my ears don't freeze. Amoung one of these I would like to make a Jayne hat for the hell of it, I've checked and there is no knitalong for Jayne hats, and I really think that their should be. I'm using the pattern from http://dryope.typepad.com/grove/2006/02/jayne_cobb_hat_.html and am probably going to do it in lamb's pride bulky, since I had some in the wrong colors and it was sort of the right kind of yarn. So how about some people join me in making a Jayne hat?
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Fashion Fusion? on: May 01, 2007 08:53:16 PM
This is more of a discussion than a question. Even though it starts with a question. Have any of you ever had a thought for an outfit or garment that sort of sounded weird or sillified? An articule of clothing that takes more than one era in fashion or borrows from various cultures or sources? I definantly have, especially since I started liking Firefly. I'm a weirdo and I think that sunbonnets are cool looking. Any of you have stuff that has lots of different sources? Want to post ideas  or pictures, I'm open to any off the wall idea and I like the look of clothes that have different sources. Plus I'm trying to figure out if it would be a good idea to incorporate sun/poke bonnets into modern attire (the recent hottopic about them + the fact that I think that I might be allergic to sunscreen prompted this line of thinking).
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Crown Decreases on ribbed beanie-help!!!!!!!! on: September 13, 2006 12:29:57 PM
Hi i want to make a hat with a 2x2 rib hat and i have no idea how to do the crown decreases, i've been knitting on and off for almost 2 years, so i'm not a complete n00b, but i am not really very advanced, i am going to be at school, so i might not see this for a few hours.
