1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: The Stereotypical Knitter on: July 04, 2006 09:17:21 PM
The first time my boyfriend knitted, he did an absolutely wonderful job and I never saw such a quick learner (and I've showed several people how to knit).  Anyway, over the winter he wanted a refresher and he did absolutely horrible and he was trying too.  I don't get it. 

He still can knit better than my mother.  Actually, she can't knit at all.  She just makes a big tangled mess.  I think I'm the black sheep of the family though because I can knit and I don't crochet (I've never really tried it).  My parents had a business selling crocheted sweaters and my grandma crocheted forever and even paid for knitting lessons and still never got it figured out!

I keep sushi in the fridge a couple days and the rice is okay, but any longer than that and it turns to yuck.

I had no problem with the rice, it turned out great!  I just followed the directions on the bag.  (Though it did finish cooking before the time on the bag said it would)

Did you get the same guage with the Symphony yarn or did you have to alter the pattern at all?

Er, to be honest, I never check the guage.  But I didn't alter the pattern at all either, other than the accidental neckline alteration that is.  Wink

It's very airy and cozy, but I never really wore it except for when I just finished making it and was excited about it.  I kind of want to make another one because I'll know what I'm doing when it comes to sweater-making this time and the stitches will be neater and I'll do the neckline properly

I was somewhat daunted by it at first too, but it turned out to be quite simple.

All you need is sushi rice, seaweed sheets, an avacado, a cucumber, and whatever sort of meat you're using(if you're using meat at all that is).  I used imitation crab.  You supposively need a sushi rolling mat too, but mine was pretty useless because I had no idea what to even do with it, haha.

Cook your rice, lay down a sheet of seaweed, put some rice on it and spread it out and press it down so it stays stuck.  Flip the seaweed over, put strips of avacado, cucumer, and fish down.  Then roll it, and cut into pieces and you're done!

What yarn is it?

It's Red Heart Symphony.  Surprisingly, it was pretty nice yarn.  A pain to unravel though  Sad

I actually finished this a loooong time ago, I just never got around to posting it here.  This is actually my first sweater  Grin  I started out using the 'To Dye For' pattern from SnB, but somehow I messed up the neck and ended up with a boatneck instead.  It actually didn't turn out too bad.  It was really inexpensive to make, really soft and light, but I still never wear it  Wink

Aah, I love LOTR!  It seems every single lembas recipe I've seen varies greatly from the next though, hmm.

I know you said you don't like 'plain ol' pasta' but you could try experimenting with the ingredients.  Pasta can be pretty versatile so there's a lot of different things you could try in there.

I just recently tried making sushi too and it turned out to be pretty easy and not too time-consuming either. 

I'm just getting into cooking so I'm not full of a lot of advice.  Most of the things I think of is just being more creative with standard things like sandwiches, salads, etc. 

Grilled cheese and tomato soup is pretty nice  Cheesy
