I have one blue thing so far. I have another thing in the works, but I need more eyeballs before I can stuff it and sew it together.

I found a couple patterns that start off as yo-yos. These are so fun and easy, and super cute!

13  My First Knitted Babe in Knitting: Completed Projects by KimberlyPye on: August 14, 2008 07:48:52 AM
I made this for a little girl I know. I had no idea how to do the hair, so I just winged it. I've since found a couple tutorials, so next time maybe I'll have better luck. As she is now, I think her hair is a little thin.  Anyone have a great hair-attaching method they want to share?

There are more pictures here: http://flickr.com/photos/thepyefamily/sets/72157606717105763/

She still needs shoes before I ship her off...

14  Exactly Four Chocolate Cupcakes (Link to recipe!) in Dessert by KimberlyPye on: August 08, 2008 12:28:00 PM
Last night my husband and I celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary, and late in the evening I decided we needed cake. I didn't want to make a whole cake, so we developed this recipe for exactly four cupcakes.

The recipe can be found here: http://kimberlypye.blogspot.com/2008/08/fourth-anniversary-cupcakes.html

And here are our cupcakes as we decorated them (they were vegan until we added milk chocolate candies):
(Mine are on top; my husband decorated the bottom ones.)

Recipe box from koalascout:

The back of the box:

Plastic bag holder from koalascout:

Vegan Chocolate Cake

1.5 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 c vegan sugar
1/4 c  unsweetened cocoa
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp white or cider vinegar
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 c vegetable oil
1 c water
confectioner's sugar (optional)

Preheat oven to 350*F. Grease and flour 8-in sq. pan only if you plan to unmold the cake before serving.

Combine flour, baking soda, sugar, cocoa, and salt in the pan (a bowl works fine, too, then you can pour it all in the pan at once). Level ingredients, then make three holes in the flour mixture. Pour vinegar in one hole, vanilla in another, and oil in the remaining one. Pour water over all. With a table fork, stir mixture very well, making sure to mix bottom and corners of pan. Batter should be almost smooth. Bake for about 30 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Remove from oven and let stand 5 minutes before turning out of pan if you are going to do so. When cake is completely cool, dust with confectioner's sugar (or make some other tasty glaze).


Maple Cinnamon Glazed Almonds
(from http://bittersweetblog.wordpress.com)

1 c raw almonds
1/4 c maple syrup
1 tbsp cinnamon

"Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Throw a silpat or a sheet of parchment paper on a baking sheet to prevent the nuts from sticking to the bottom and thusly burning. I prefer using a silpat because it creates less waste, but use whatever youve got.

"Throw all ingredients into a small bowl and combine thoroughly, being sure to coat all the almonds completely in the syrup and spice. Spread evenly in one layer on the baking sheet and roast in the oven for 5 minutes. Shake around a bit to flip them over and make sure they arent sticking too badly. Bake for another 5 minutes or more, until they turn a slightly darker brown or smell nutty. Careful now - Nuts go from lovely golden to steaming turd in no time flat.

"Remove from the oven and immediately take off of sheet, or they will continue to cook. Allow to cool and store in an air tight container."


Yeast-Free Applesauce Pizza Crust

2 c flour
1 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
2/3 c water
1/4 c apple sauce

Mix all ingredients. Knead on floured surface until spreadable. Apply toppings, bake at 425*F for about 20 minutes.

(Notice the apple sauce takes the place of oil, so it's fat free! It's very soft and delicious!)

16  Raindrops -- Etched Water Glass in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by KimberlyPye on: August 05, 2008 06:11:57 AM
I received some etching cream from the OWS a while ago, and this is my first serious project I've completed with it.

I got the glass at the dollar store, and I stole the raindrop idea from a window pictured in the latest ReadyMade.

I'm drinking water from it at work right now. I lurve it.  Cheesy

17  Re: Jar of Mini Whimsies Round 2 Swap Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by KimberlyPye on: August 05, 2008 06:02:20 AM
I got my super fabulous tube of whimsies from mommy2tnk yesterday! I had so much fun opening it and digging out all the stuff!

Here are some close-ups:

The container.

A little teacup.

I love this pear magnet! (And crochet hooks! Wahoo!)

Extra yarn in the envelope for my yo-yo afghan! I just have three more wads to add, and I can post pictures of her section!

Here's a link to the first big picture on flickr with notes, if you want a closer look: http://www.flickr.com/photos/thepyefamily/2733578945/in/set-72157606553776270/

18  Re: Dishalicious Dishcloth/Washcloth Swap Round 5 in The Swap Gallery by KimberlyPye on: August 01, 2008 05:58:31 AM
And here's what I got from Daniethanas:

I got two fab dishcloths, a snail, a candle, some tea, and some yarn scraps. Now she can have a bona fide section in my yo-yo afghan instead of being an overall contributor.  Wink

Here's a close up of the darling cotton snail:

(I think I've settled on the name Sloopy.)

And a close-up of the stitching:

(The earth-tone one is ridgy. It made me say, "Whoa!")

And here it all is again, with the oddly festive bag for a warm summer day. I love it. :-)

(Stay down here, Sloopy!)

Thanks a berjillion, Danielle!

Here's some yellow stuff!

First, a little yellow heart, among others:

And second, a tawashi. I made about a million of these over a couple days. It was my first time following a Japanese chart, and it was stupidly easy:

I made one of these a looong time ago, and another one more recently.

At work today, I needed the pattern again. I got it through Ravelry, and then was reminded that this came from Craftster!

Thanks for the great pattern!

Below are my first two baby octopi. My third and fourth are on their way!
