okay, i see it now.  the part of my brain that's used to sewing assumed that there was a tube for the thumb added into the seam.  that is much classier than i had imagined it to be.  oh the possibilities of knitting! thanks for the update! i'm glad you posted before i ran off to knit it and had the clunkiest seam ever from trying to add in a thumb tube!

nancie wiseman was also on "the art of knitting, volume 1" dvd.  she showed off her book and gave a quick tutorial on knitting with wire.  i post this just in case you are like me and don't have cable TV.  the dvd's available through netflix.  i do love these napkin rings.  the colors are great and the rings are funky and classy.  great job!

those look great and oh so warm.   i've been making these this week without the thumbs, mostly because i couldn't figure it out.  i think i get it now from your pictures, so thank you!  good work!

you have leftover curry?  my friends come over and eat all of my leftovers.  that sounds like it would be great as filling.  i think i'll try that next time i make curry, and not tell anyone, of course... Wink
6  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: I am in need of a samosa recipe anyone got one??? on: October 06, 2005 03:29:35 PM
here's my recipe from the little big cookbook from the borders bargain bin:

vegetable samosas (serves 4-6 people)

3 potatoes, boiled and mashed
3 oz. frozen peas, cooked and drained (i use a small can of peas from the canned veggie aisle, right by the...)
2 oz canned corn, drained
1 tsp cumin
1 small red onion, chopped
2 green chile peppers, finely chopped
2 tbsp each fresh mint and cilantro, coarsely chopped
salt to taste
juice of one lemon
1 package spring roll pastry/egg roll pastry
2 cups oil for frying

place potatoes, peas, corn, cumin, onion, chile, cilantro and mint in a large bowl and mix well. season with salt and lemon juice. if you're making this for a bunch of friends, make this part the day ahead and refrigerate it. it's better after the flavors sit together for a while.

place a piece of pastry on a work surface. don't let the rest of the sheets of pastry dry out! use cornstarch to keep anything from getting too sticky and on your work surface.  spoon 1 tablespoon of the filling onto the center of each piece.  fold up the pastry to make a triangle. stop now and freeze if you want to cook them up later. 

heat the oil in a large skillet/frying pan until golden brown all over. drain on paper towels.  salt them while they're hot, if you like.  serve hot with a fresh cilantro relish or a chile sauce, says the book.   i like to mix up a combination of soy sauce and thai chili garlic sauce, but that is not very authentic.

mmm... poke cake....    unless i'm mistaken, you pour the jello all over the cake, but you focus on the holes. the holes absorb more than the rest of the cooled cake does.

votre pull est vachement joli!  il faut me laisser savoir si vous aurez besoin d'une autre traductrice.  plus!
9  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: Luigi Quilt (Graphic Intensive) on: October 06, 2005 11:25:54 AM
good work! the quilting does look good.  this is not your first stippling, is it?  i think keeping the lines from touching is the hardest part.  my mother has a machine like this and quilts for people.  most folks don't like to do the (hard) finishing part, just the fun part, the top.  way to save money and do great work by finishing your own quilt!

this is a lovely scarf you've designed (as you have heard plenty of times, i'm sure).  could you please send me a copy of the pattern?  my e-mail is harp0998@blue.unco.edu.  thank you very much for sharing this wonderful idea!
