1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy - Don't Panic! on: May 31, 2010 04:20:24 PM
This is my entry for the Novel Knits challenge.
I decided to make my very own Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy!

The big friendly letters are made of felt and keep the guide closed so it doesn't activate in your pocket Smiley

I hand-embroidered an article title and text on the screen...

And used short rows to give it body
Back view:

It's also kind of squishy Cheesy

Thanks for reading! Smiley
2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Mini/Portable Sewing Machines on: September 15, 2009 02:05:56 PM
I want a small sewing machine that will fit in my room, and I'll be able to take away to university next year - can anyone suggest a good one?
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Simple Fair Isle Charts? on: February 22, 2009 02:00:30 PM
I'm making a pair of Urban Necessity glittens in a really bright emerald green and, 3/4 of the way through the first one, I've decided that it's just a bit too bright for me, so I'm going to give them too a friend and make another pair for myself. I'd quite like to do something interesting with colours - I have 2 different DK wools that I'd like to use, but no idea what sort of pattern to do, although I'd love to try fair isle, especially as it's quite a small project. So - does anybody have any suggestions of simple fair isle patterns, or where I could find them?
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / DPN phone cover pattern on: February 05, 2009 02:11:17 PM
I'm very very very nearly finished my first pair of socks, and I got asked to make a phone cover cozy type thing for a friend. I've got my wool - a dark blue-grey mohair/acrylic blend that's only vaguely fluffy. I want to make it vaguely interesting (ie not stocking stitch) but not too difficult - does anyone have any suggestions?
5  COOKING / Dessert / Carrot Cake disaster on: August 14, 2008 08:17:02 AM
I decided to make a carrot cake today as it's the summer holidays and I'm bored. I laid all my ingredients out beforehand like a good little chef, put everything in the dishwasher straight away, and made sure I put the cooking timer on the oven on as soon as the cake went into the oven. I even checked halfway through cooking to make sure it was rising properly. But then I came upstairs and logged on to craftster, and it was only when I smelled the cake (from the other side of the house) that I realised the timer was going off. And had been for half an hour. When I got it out of the oven, it looked like this:

Hardly the golden-brown, beautifully risen cake it had promised to be when I last looked. So, my question is, how burnt is too burnt?
