2  Slouch hat in Knitting: Completed Projects by mashy on: January 05, 2013 04:39:24 AM
I haven't posted here for some time but any way here's a hat I knitted a few weeks ago. I used a pattern by Coco knits. Free pattern here: http://cocoknits.com/downloads/free-patterns/cocoknits_SimpleSlouchyHat.pdf

I used 2 balls of purple Big Softie yarn, and only cast on 60 as most hats seem to fall off my tiny head!

3  Lace Skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by mashy on: March 01, 2012 07:58:37 AM
So I've been seeing a few of these mini lace skirts around in the shops and evertime I think I could so easily make this myself. So I did!

Wasn't completely from scratch as I used a 4 H&M skirt as a base - and then sewed the lace to it. But you could easily make that base by cutting the top part off a t-shirt.

I'm also quite lazy so I didn't put a zipper in . I just made the skirt somewhat stretchy by stretching the jersey skirt as I was sewing the lace on so the lace was ruffled.

The tutorial is on my blog: http://tashymakesstuff.blogspot.com/2012/02/lace-mini-skirt-tutorial.html

Any way here is the result:

4  Red Velvet cupcakes in Dessert by mashy on: February 26, 2012 05:30:14 AM
So here is my first attempt at Red Velvet Cupcakes, and second attempt at cupcakes altogether (first one went horribly wrong!). Its a Nigella Lawson recipe and I found an adaptation here: http://www2.readersdigest.ca/food/blog/2010/11/09/nigella-lawsons-red-velvet-cupcakes/

Unfortunetely they didn't have the right type of food colouring in my local shop so they ended kind of brown, but hey-ho it's the taste that counts and they came out rather delicious!

And of course the cat did feel the need to help!

Grrrrr... I hate pleats, does anyone know of an easy way to work out which size they should be? I had to use a lot of trial and error and headaches!

Roughly based on this tutorial: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=25255.0
