11  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Looking for a Cardigan Pattern.. on: December 12, 2007 08:55:28 PM
Hey Y'all,
After knitting for years and years I've decided its time to make a cardigan. I've been digging around online for days and cannot find quite what I want. I'm looking for a basic cardigan pattern (ie- no lace or super fancy stitches) knit in a bulky or chunky type yarn. Free is good too. Also, I'm not opposed to a sweater pattern, Its just that I'm a bit odd shaped. Cardigans usually fit me much better. I just need something that won't take me for freaking ever- I'm one of those people that knits on the metro and occasionally at like 4 30 in the morning. Help me Craft-stars!!
12  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Thai Chicken Wraps on: December 12, 2007 05:59:25 PM
I'm trying to figure out how to eat actual meals without wasting a lot of food, since I live alone. So, here it goes.
This is a small serving, for 2, maybe 3 people.

2 chicken breasts, coated in Braggs (or soy sauce) whatever seasonings you have, cayenne pepper
cook these in a frying pan with a little bit of oil

julienne 1/3 cucumber, shred some carrots, chop a bit of red onion and mix with some vinegar, a few splashes of braggs, salt (if needed) and cayenne pepper to taste. leave to marinate while everything else cooks.

put about 1/4-1/3 cup of peanut butter in a bowl. add a tablespoon or so of vinegar and a few dashes of braggs. microwave for 30 seconds or so, until soft. mix, add olive oil till smooth (no more than a few tbs). add cayenne, garlic and ginger to taste.

warm a tortilla, spread some of the peanut sauce on it, fill with chicken and cucumber salad. I added sprouts on top. EAT!

This is pretty basic as I have an empty kitchen. Anyone have any suggestions for improvement?

Has anyone had any success selling in any stores in town? I'm looking to sell some jewelry and knitted items at pretty moderate prices.

I really love making these. I used leftover yarn from my Dr. Who scarf

So I bought some pendants on ebay. You know, the octopus ones that everyone has. I figure since these are everywhere there is probably no copyright infringement to worry about, right? As long as I make necklaces out of them I'm ok?
16  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Dr. Who-like Scarf for My Man on: December 03, 2007 09:56:29 PM
Actually finished a few weeks ago but I was really anxious to give it to him and forgot to take pictures. So I borrowed it tonight. Woolease knit in Cartridge Belt Rib which I love love love because you don't have to purl!

17  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Moda Dea Tweedle Dee and a Question about Sweaters on: December 02, 2007 05:56:54 PM
So after a very successful trip to Michael's yesterday I ended up with some Moda Dea Tweedle Dee shaded effect yarn in indigo run. Its really gorgeous, really soft and I think I'm gonna make a scarf out of it. So here's my question. What stitch should I use? I feel the colors and texture would work really well with a seed stitch (which I of course, loathe)- but its too good for a plain garter stitch and maybe too thick to look nice ribbed. Maybe a dropped stitch scarf? Anyone ever use this stuff before? Any ideas? Its bulky and knit with a size 11 needle.

Also, does anyone have a free pattern for a relatively easy sweater or cardigan knit in bulky yarn?
After knitting for 10 years its time to take the plunge..

19  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / New Banana Republic Hat! Must make!! on: November 29, 2007 07:44:13 PM
Not that I shop there or anything, but I saw a picture of this in a newspaper ad and NEED to make it. Its got a BRIM! I don't even know how I would start... well, ok, not true. Can anyone tell if this is knit or crocheted?

I don't know if this would generate a lot of interest. But its so crafty to brew your own booze.
