That makes sense, absolutely (well, it does to me now, I may still get confused when actually doing it! ha ha)
Thanks so much. I can't wait to get started!

There's a new TGS!! I love tompkins. A number of my friends and I all seem to bear uncanny resemblances to the tgs girls, and go along quoting them. I'm the ugly one. 16 hour drum solo!

I am also about to launch into a blanket, for a cousin who's due in May, and could use some help.
How do you do a border, seed-stitch or otherwise?

Check out this link to a lil comic i'm sure we all appreciate... I'm only putting the link because I'm not so sure about copyrights.

6  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: New Vegetarian on: January 09, 2005 07:36:25 PM
I've been veg for about two years, and I also had to deal with my mother looking over my shoulder to see what I was eating...though it seems your mum has good reason to! ha ha.
Everyone's suggestions are good. There are tons of great cookbooks out there, Moosewood's of course being a classic. There are also a lot of them that are specifically aimed at teenagers (which I can assume you are?), with ideas and recipes for bag lunches, easy dinner recipes, etc. And there are obviously zillions of recipes online.
Despite my many reservations about Peta's methods, their website does have a wide variety of recipes, all in one place. You might want to check that out.
Now, I don't know why you decided to become a vegetarian, but yay! for you, as it really is very ecologically friendly. Which brings me to my next suggestion:
Please, please, please read "Diet for a Small Planet"!!! This is an old-school book about the ethical benefits of eating from the bottom of the food chain instead of the top, as well as practical tips, and some good recipes. I promise that reading this book will change the way you look at food.
One last tip: don't be afraid of ethnic foods! There are so many cultures out there which don't emphasise meat in thier diets, that there is a lot of room for you to explore and have fun with what you eat.
Being a vegetarian in a family of meateaters means a little extra care and planning in your meals, and a willingness to experiment. Trust me, though, it's worth it.
Good luck and happy eating!
7  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: how to de-spicy a too spicy pot of chili -- HELP! on: January 09, 2005 06:58:39 PM
Well, i'm not sure if this will work or help. But I know that this is what you do if a sauce or soup is too salty--- add potatoes.
Cook a few potatoes in it, them remove them. I don't know if it works with spice, but it might be worth a try before you go out and buy more meat and start upsizing your recipe (though maybe you'll have to do that anyway.)
Good luck. The worst case scenario is that you end up with gallons and gallons of chili, with lost chunks of potato in it, right?

Those are absolutely brilliant. Thank you so much for bringing them to everyone's attention. All the time I've wasted counting rows and stiches...only to get distracted and have to start again...sigh.
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: my hobo scarf. on: January 07, 2005 08:48:00 PM
I think the handwarmers really compliment the hobo vibe of the scarf.
I got a little kit for a pair of similar handwarmers for Christmas, and I'm wondering  - were they very difficult to make? I'm a freshman knitter; I'm pretty good on straight needles, but have never worked in the round. Yours are so cute, that I would like to ask for any tips for before i start.
