431  Three and a Half Dishcloth (w/pattern) in Crochet: Completed Projects by craftADDchick on: December 07, 2008 11:02:51 AM
Not long ago, I took an intro to crochet class to see if I could pick up some things to help me crochet a bit better. Since I already knew the stitches being taught, I had a tendency to do my own thing. So, while we were supposed to be practicing our treble crochet, I made a dishcloth instead. I did include the treble crochet, so I was sort of doing what I was supposed to be doing Wink

It's pretty much 3 rows of hdc, followed by a row of trc. I did that 3 times, and ended with 3 rows of hdc. Then I put an edging on it.

I've written out the pattern, but I didn't test it (I wrote it after I finished), so I'm not 100% sure it makes sense. Let me know if you see anything I need to fix or clarify Smiley

Note: Turning chains count as first stitch of next row
Chain 27 (25  ch + 2 turning chains)
Row 1: hdc in fourth chain from hook; hdc across, ch 2, turn
Row 2: hdc across, ch 2, turn
Row 3: hdc across, ch 4, turn
Row 4: trc across, ch 2, turn

Rows 5 & 6: hdc across, ch 2, turn
Row 7: hdc across, ch 4, turn
Row 8: trc across, ch 2, turn

Rows 9-12: repeat rows 5-8

Rows 13-15: hdc across, ch 2, turn (At end of row 15, chain 1 only)

Edging: sc, chain 3 around. Along top and bottom edges, two hdc were skipped between each sc. Along sides, one sc into ends of first and third rows of hdc (or top and bottom of trc). Fasten off. Or,work desired edging.

I received my last set of yarn and it was from Linda P! She included a ball of glow-in-the-dark yarn for me, too. Thanks a bunch, Linda P!

I really love this swap and all of the neat yarns that everyone is getting.

And, Rumpazel, those little hanks are the BEST! I'm stealing your idea for the next round Wink And, I think you could have a second career in the yarn-naming field. Your names are so much more fun than the ones they originally had! Great job!

Thanks anyway, lucy van pelt! Nice socks!

And, I received from crazy4bags today! She sent along some extra ones, too! Thanks a bunch!

These colors will look great in my Granny's Daughters afghan!

I received my first batch of yarn today! And it's from the very generous RondaS Wink

I should be able to get plenty of Granny's Daughters out of these- enough to share Smiley

Great colors, too! I like the colors in the variegated with the blues and greens, and the one right in front has some sparkly fibers in it- pretty!

Thanks, Ronda!

The cutest scarf EVER!!

All bundled up in the box!

Thanks so much! And, thanks again, TheSapphireMoon, for organizing yet another fabulous round!!

436  Shepherd's Pie in a Pumpkin in Recipes and Cooking Tips by craftADDchick on: November 02, 2008 06:04:42 PM

While shopping for a pumpkin in order to roast the seeds, I started chatting with the gal at the farm stand. She told me that they had 2 kinds of pumpkins and that one was better for seeds and one was better for pies... or making shepherd's pie. Well, I couldn't let that get by me, so I asked her how...

Get a medium-sized pumpkin and cut off the top (cut a wide opening). Scoop out the seeds and scrape out all of the stringy bits with a strong metal spoon. Sprinkle in some brown sugar (I rubbed it around on the inside, and also sprinkled in a little cinnamon and nutmeg). Then, layer in your shepherd's pie ingredients. I cooked up some ground beef with onion (took about 1/2 to 3/4 pound), put in some frozen corn with a few dots of butter, then added in the frozen carrot/pea mix (which I never usually put in shepherd's pie... but I was leaving out the potatoes, so I needed something). I added a few more dots of butter and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Then, I wrapped the lid in foil, and placed it on top. I put the whole pumpkin in a glass dish (I used a pie plate, but a metal cookie sheet with edges would work just as well), and baked it (make sure it fits in the oven... you may have to adjust the shelves) at 350 degrees until the pumpkin was cooked (it took about 2 hours). When serving, scoop out some of the pumpkin along with everything else. Delicious!!

I think the only thing I might change is to put in a small can of creamed corn (we never used it when I was a kid, it was always just frozen corn), to make it a bit "saucier." Although, when the pumpkin got a bit mashed in, it didn't really need it!

Now, I'm thinking I'd like to try a pumpkin stuffed with some ground turkey and cranberries, topped with a bit of stuffing... I'll have to get another pumpkin (and some stuffing)!

Here are my Granny's Daughters from my wonderful angel, Linda P! She sent a few extra, too! And, she also sent me a mini-dishcloth for cleaning in small places (like inside cups, and stuff) and an angel to carry in my pocket (but she's going in my car, instead Wink ).

Thanks myklia for getting me such an awesome angel!

438  Re: Friends of Craftster Raffle Swap R3 FOCR R3 (Signups CLOSED, Sendouts 11/7) in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by craftADDchick on: November 02, 2008 05:49:17 PM
Oh, man! So many awesome things! I love them all (although that polar bear scarf is extra fantastic, and I don't even wear scarves... but I'd so wear that one).

My item is mostly done- I still need to weave in the ends and stiffen the snowflakes (they look much better that way... see my earlier picture). They are all the same (because it's the only pattern I know how to make Tongue ). And, after seeing all of the awesomeness here, I may be tucking in something else, too...

439  Obama Campaign Poster Notebook in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by craftADDchick on: October 26, 2008 06:13:06 PM
This summer, my uncle was expressing his political views, and he happened to mention that he didn't agree with the teachers' union. When I called him on it (I'm a teacher), he said he meant the NEA (National Education Association). He's also not an Obama fan. So, when I was at the state teachers' union summer conference, I managed to snag a campaign poster. I converted it in to a graph paper notebook using my Bind-It-All. Hopefully, he'll get it tomorrow. I wanted to give it to him myself, but it didn't work out. I hope he knows I'm teasing him...  Grin



I did tell my mum that if he really doesn't appreciate it, that I'll take it back...

Yay! I received from Umheried today, and they are awesome! The best things: she wove in the ends for me (big kiss for you!), and she sent me some colors in the same family, but in different shades, so they'll be perfect for my idea of starting with one color and then moving across the spectrum (or around the color wheel). Thanks so much!!
