11  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: TroubleT's Adventures in Canning 2012! on: June 18, 2012 01:51:59 PM
I love canning!  I've only done the water bath method (and have stuck to jelly/jam/relishes - high acid stuff).  I'm so glad that you're loving the pressure canner--I'm wanting to jump on that train!  Everything you've made looks so yummy. Smiley
12  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knifty Knitter Loom Slipper Socks on: February 20, 2012 07:33:46 PM
I'm a pretty new knitter (just barely comfortable with the basics), so using DPNs feels a bit out of reach for me right now.  For some reason, loom knitting seems far more accessible.  I used Isela Phelp's pattern for "Chunky Ribbed Socks" in her book Loom Knitting Primer.  Super easy to follow and a nice introduction to sock making.  It made me buy sock weight yarn, and I'm eagerly awaiting the arrival of a fine gauge adjustable loom to make socks that are thin enough to wear with shoes. 

These are made with Wool-Ease Thick & Quick yarn in sky blue.   They were knitted on the blue knifty knitter, and they're definitely thick and warm enough to be slippers.  I guess they'd be awesome in boots in cold weather, but since I'm in Texas, I have no idea what real cold weather is. Smiley



Sorry for the crummy phone pics!

@Sandroo - I work in a small department within the customer relations area of a major airline.  Smiley  I definitely feel you.
14  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / I hate you the least. on: February 14, 2012 11:46:00 AM
After a long day at work or an especially disconcerting conversation regarding the state of the world/politics, my husband or I often sigh and say, "I hate people."  This is generally followed with, "But I hate you the least."  So, for this Valentine's Day, I stitched up that sentiment to remind him how much I love him. Smiley

(We're both actually very positive people and really don't hate anyone, but I know you guys get the humor.)

This will eventually get framed, but I barely finished it last night in the wee hours, so it's still awaiting some finishing touches.

Happy Valentine's Day!  I hate you all the least!

How did they not know she was Scarlett O'Hara? Smiley  Both the original costume and this remaking are wonderful!
16  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / First FO: Loops and Threads Pom Pom Yarn on: November 15, 2011 10:36:19 PM
I'm a newbie when it comes to hand knitting.  I've finished several loom-knit items, but I haven't been patient enough to just sit and practice knitting/purling to make anything more than practice squares let alone items I'd wear out of the house.  I bought some Loops and Threads pom pom yarn at Michaels on a whim, and I really, really enjoyed knitting with it.  The scarf is ridiculously plush, and it was a very quick knit.  I think just knitting the carrier yarn was actually easier to handle than regular worsted or bulky yarn as a newbie.

The Michaels site has an easy-to-follow video for both knitting and crocheting with the pom pom yarn (though I haven't figured out crocheting yet).  http://www.michaels.com/Bunny-Tail-Yarn-Video/LtBT1Vm2172u2,default,pg.html

This color of yarn is named Outdoors, and it's a really pretty combination of colors.  I'm just excited to actually finish a knitting project!  Grin

Aww, thanks guys!  You made me very happy. Smiley
19  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / PB&J Pillows on: June 27, 2011 10:05:01 AM
Our bed is a little boring (and our bedroom is way too purple), so I made some bread stuffies.  I'm used to more traditional beds/bedding - so although I love our new bed, the bedding has me flummoxed.  I just need to give up on the "too many pillows" look that doesn't fit with more modern style furniture -- it just looks.....weird. Smiley



Some day we'll repaint our bedroom a more neutral color (grey, perhaps?), and then the bedding won't come across so plain.  Until then, the pillows will have to do to add much-needed interest.  They make me happy regardless!
