2  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / Craftster symbols Help on: March 01, 2009 03:58:42 AM

Sorry if I'm posting this in the wrong place, but not sure really where it should go. 

Can someone tell me where to find out what all the little symbols that appear below your avatar mean?  If you hover over some of them you get a description, but with others you don't.   I know some link to blogs etc, but some people seem to have loads and others only 1 or 2. 

Have looked around the site, but can't seem to find the answer, am sure I've seen the info somewhere, but am still learning I find the amount of information overwhelming at times.   Any help would be really appreciated.

3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Fairisle Cross Stitch on: February 21, 2009 03:27:48 AM
Looking at a recent post by Wildanimus 'Fancy Little Cross Stitches' reminded me of something I made a few years ago.  I had forgotten all about it as I haven't been able to do cross stitching for a while, and when we moved house I must have put it away.  I went in search of it, not sure if I even still had it, but low and behold I did - it was the only thing in a basket I'd put on top of the wardrobe in the spare room.

I thought I'd share it, as by doing just that with her project Wildanimus reminded me of something I'd forgotten all about, and may be even able to try again.

I used a selection of fairisle knitting patterns to do this, and it started off as just a couple of sample ones to see if they worked; they did and looked OK, so I just kept going.  I ran out of thread an had to use one that didn't match, but it was only a trial after all - that's probably why I put it away and forgot about it.

Glad I found it again.  It's far from perfect, but I am going to put it on my wall once I've finished decorating.
Hope you like it.

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Diamond Crochet Scarves on: February 17, 2009 06:26:31 PM
I made my friend a scarf for Christmas and liked it so much I made myself one - then another.

I was so pleased with the way it turned out.  I found an old, 'vintage' (1980's?) pattern for a top on the local market, but only liked the stitch used and not the top.

Played about with the stitch, and made these scarves. Is much easier than it looks.

The pink one is in a soft acrylic fibre and the green one is cotton.

Lots of pics so you can see the detail.

Will post the pattern if anyone is interested.

5  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / vegan/vegetarian fruit bran bread on: February 11, 2009 12:02:00 PM
Hi, I was just off to start making some of this when I thought I would share it.  It's one of my favourites, as it is quick, easy, cheap and really simple.  It's also fat free, and quite low in sugar -

4oz (125g)  All Bran breakfast cereal
4oz (125g)  dried mixed fruit
3oz (75g) brown sugar
4oz (125g) self raising flour (or plain with baking powder added - I use this)
1/2 pint milk (300ml).  You can also use soya milk - I often use this and it tastes no different.

Put the All Bran, sugar, fruit and milk into a mixing bowl, cover and leave to stand for 1 hour.
Then add the flour and stir in.
Pour into 2 x1lb loaf tins (lined with baking paper, or greased and lightly floured)
Bake at 180C 350F Gas Mark 4       for 40- 50 mins
Cool in the tin for about 20 mins then turn out.
This tastes better next day.  You can store this in an air tight container for about a week.  Have with or without butter.

Enjoy  Smiley

Word of warning - I thought this would make nice muffins as it is very moist, but they don't cook well in small amounts - they dry out quicker and go hard.

6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Paul's cat blanket on: February 09, 2009 05:06:28 AM
Hi,  I was well proud of the blanket I made for my cat Paul, but he doesn't like it  Sad  Will have to knit him one instead.
What does your cat like to sleep on?

7  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Crochet Sea Creature Friends on: February 09, 2009 05:00:47 AM
Just thought I would share the octopus and manta ray I made for my daughter (age 19).  Our cat Paul also loves to play with the octopus, so I made 1 specially for him to play with  Smiley  These patterns were both free online, I'll post the link if anyone woul like them.
