1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Re: Small-scale art on: December 19, 2016 12:16:26 AM
Hey!  I came back to this thread because birdcage lady hangs proudly over my bed, and my son wanted to know when I got her.  I had to go digging back through Craftster to find out.  Now he wants us to get a bunny tea party as well.  You still have these kicking around 7 years later, right? Smiley

Kiddo even made a Lego homage to birdcage lady.  Can you see it?

2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Mini Rings of Change on: July 22, 2015 03:30:38 PM
I saw a picture of the full Rings of Change afghan somewhere recently, and was impressed.  I love the idea of constantly changing stitches, because monotony is always the thing that holds me up on big projects.  I found the Mini Rings of Change pattern for free on Ravelry, and decided to make on up on a whim, out of acrylic scrap yarn.  My son has stolen it for the moment, but I'm not sure where its final home will be.

Yes, please on the tutorial!

I've dabbled in glass etching, but the caustic etching compound really freaks me out.  I'd love an alternative, and metal items are more durable anyway.
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My first ever knitted thing - Wild Berries by Tweedysheep on: March 01, 2015 10:17:37 PM
My cousin taught me to knit when I was 12 or so, by which I mean she taught me to make long rectangles with no particular use, which I gave up fairly quickly. I took up crochet in my 20s, and thats been my fiber art of choice ever since. I do get covetous of some of the lovely sweater patterns that knitting lends itself to, though, and when I saw someone else's Wild Berries on another forum, I decided that I needed one too.

My knitting friend fishie talked me through some of the more confusing parts of the pattern via email, and there was kind of a long break over the summer and on into the holiday crafting season where it saw no progress, but tonight, almost exactly a year after I started it, I sewed on the buttons and finished it off.

Not exactly a glamour shot, but not bad, huh?

It was love at first sight when I saw this pattern.  A friend gifted me her whole drawer of mismatched scrap yarn, which got me off to a great start.  The original was made of sock yarn, but since mine is all worsted, he's HUGE, about 2.5' from nose to rump.

Very cute!  Your color scheme is a lot more cohesive than mine.
9  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Paneer Masala Pizza on: January 05, 2014 08:28:13 PM
This is an idea that's been kicking around in my head for a while.  Today was my birthday, and I decided that for my birthday dinner, I would finally make the dream reality.



I used this crust recipe: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/bread-machine-pizza-dough/ though I'm anxious to try it again with the recipe here: http://www.101cookbooks.com/archives/001199.html.  Today, I didn't have the 12+ hours available to let the dough rest in the fridge.

The sauce is a paneer masala type sauce, made with onion, ginger, garlic, lots of Indian spices, tomato paste, and cream (lots of cream).  I simmered the paneer in the sauce, then strained it back out to use as a topping, along with some diced red onion and green peas (and a blanket of mozzarella, of course).

I baked it all at 400 for 25 minutes, and... it was awesome.  My only quibble is that next time, I'd rather have a thinner crust with a lighter flavor.  I used a dark beer in the crust recipe, and while it would have been awesome under, say, a sausage and tomato pizza, it was a leetle too much for the creamy/spicy sauce.  Still, an excellent proof of concept.  I'll definitely be making this again.
