1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Wooley Thames! on: June 20, 2009 06:35:43 AM
I bought this yarn from Liberty during my trip to London a few weeks ago! My vaycay budget didnt allow a whole sweaters worth of yarn, so three skeins was all I could get away with! ;-)

Im psyched it turned out this well, because the pattern was completely improvised! Better pix coming soon!
Check it out on Ravelry! http://www.ravelry.com/projects/voolenvine/wooley-thames!

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Boheme (revised) on: April 24, 2009 03:12:18 PM
For Easter, I knit my little cousin, Summer a revised version of Boheme


I used Lion Brand Cotton Ease in Taupe and only changed the lace pattern. I was a little skeptical about the color at first, but in the end, it turned out very antique doll looking. Her mom LOVED it! *phew!*
Still waiting for picks of her wearing it!!! 

I don't have very much experience knitting cardigans, so this was definitely a good practice project for me, and needless to say very fun to knit!

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Cherries Beta Pullover on: March 16, 2009 05:21:59 AM
I started knitting this not really knowing where I was going with it... but when it came time to knit the sleeves, I realized I had this bright red yarn I didn't know what else to do with, so I just started knitting that into the pattern.

Not totally psyched about the way it came out. The Neckline was too small. I really had to yank it over my head!  Shocked I ended up giving it to my mom, who really liked it!  Cheesy

But, that being said, I definitely want to knit another version... and with better yarn and smaller needles... For this, I just used Red Heart Super Saver on US 10.

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Need help translating "Holvit- pitsihuivin ohje" (Finnish Pattern?) on: January 31, 2009 08:00:40 AM
I want to knit this scarf for my grandmother, but the pattern is, I think, in Finnish...  Shocked can anyone please help me translate it?  Cheesy

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Yarn used for this Stella McCartney Sweater? on: November 24, 2008 06:42:56 AM
Does anyone know of a yarn similar (and preferably affordable) to the one used in the Stella McCartney Sweater that Keira Knightley wore on the cover of the Nov. 08 Glamour Mag?


6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Purple People Eater Sweater! on: November 12, 2008 05:48:29 PM
OK, actually it's 257 Pull Empicement Rond:
as translated by Wabbit: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=122186.0

But this is my 2nd completed sweater EVER! I'm so psyched. I started it about three months ago, messed up and had to frog the cable pattern and start again from there... then decided to take a break... and then I started a new job and only had weekends to finish it... and slowly but surely, I finished it last Sunday!... in a moving vehicle, nonetheless!.

Enjoy the pix!

7  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Spicy Turkey Meat Loaf! on: October 14, 2008 08:25:34 AM
I made Turkey Meatloaf last night, because I've been craving comfort food lately... or actually, after trekking 3 hours in a car to the Oktoberfest on Hunter Mountain in the Catskills, and trying a "home made" German Meatloaf... which actually just tasted like a slab of hot dog... I felt the need to rekindle my love for comfort food, and make it right... and not to mention healthy!

1 1/2 lb Ground Turkey Meat
1 cup seasoned bread crumbs (or whole wheat)
1 medium onion grated
3 garlic cloves minced
1/4 cup ketchup
1/2 cup BBQ sauce (any kind)... I usually go for spicey, hickory or chipotle
1/2 tbsp fresh pepper
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
1 egg
1 tbsp. pizza pepper (optional)
1 tsp. cayenne pepper (optional)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. In a large mixing bowl, thoroughly combine onion, garlic, 1/4 of bbq sauce & ketchup, parsley, salt, pepper, optional spices and ground turkey meat (careful not to cross-contaminate!)
3. spray 9" loaf pan with PAM, and pack in loaf mixture.
4. Brush top of loaf with remaining ketchup and bbq mixture.
5. Grate more pepper or spices to your liking.
6. Place in oven and bake for 1 hour. Let stand for 10 min before serving.

Enjoy!  Cheesy

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Autumn Pools Hat on: October 06, 2008 01:31:53 PM
So after spending over 30 minutes in my LYS I picked out this color yarn to knit a hat with for my boyfriend... Not sure how he's going to react to it... I only know that while I was knitting it, he kept joking about how the colors looked very Rastafarian...
The colors kept reminding me of pumpkin pie, making me hungry! hehe

I actually really like the way it turned out so I might be borrowing it ;-)

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Sugar Plum Fairisle Hat on: October 02, 2008 12:00:12 PM
I took a break from knitting this sweater I've been working on for eons and decided to knit a hat with some yarn I've been dying to make use of.
I didn't follow any pattern. Just went off on my own tangent, and this is what I came up with.  Cheesy
It's actually a little shorter than I would have liked it to be. I might unravel some of it to make it longer... and add a pompom. hehe

**modified: So I frogged it a smidge and made it longer, and added a pom pom!

I also posted the pattern on my blog! 

10  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Chunky Spicy Ham & Split Pea Comfort Dip on: October 01, 2008 01:30:58 PM
I'm more of a knitter, but today I made a super yummy dip I thought I'd share!
Since the weather's getting cooler, and soup is definitely working its way back into my diet, it dawned on me to try making a split pea dip!

15oz Can Split Peas
3 slices Deli Sliced Ham
1 tbsp fresh cracked pepper
Sea Salt to taste
1 tsp lemon juice
1 1/2 tsp paprika
1 tsp cayenne pepper
2 cloves minced garlic
2 tbsp filtered water
Olive Oil or PAM

Cut ham slices into smaller pieces and place in small sauce pan with olive oil or pam on high. Add a dash of salt & pepper. Stir around pan until slightly darkened. Remove pan from heat and set aside.

Place whole can of peas into food processor. Add salt, pepper, garlic, paprika, and lemon juice. Process well adding water as you go along, or until desired density. (note: don't add too much water or the dip will become too watery.)

Add cooked ham to the food processor and blend for one more minute. You may add more pepper or cayenne pepper if you want to and more spice.

Enjoy!  Cheesy
