1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / armwarmers, wristwarmers and an ornament on: January 28, 2004 11:02:30 PM
*phew* i FINALLY got my camera working again!  so here are some projects i've done, inspired by this lovely message board, of course...

green armwarmers
made these for my friend kat from two types of sock yarn i had around.  the second one started striping, which i totally wished happened in the first one.  *sigh*  o well.  

skully wrist/handwarmers
i started an intarsia/fairisle knitting class and was a big nerd about it so i practiced!  totally inspired by the skully wristwarmers here, i made mine because its damn cold in my basement office.

and lastly...

the most awesomest (and posted waaaaay too late, i know... but that's because i just found this website) christmas ornament in the whole entire world...

Grin the Jessica Simpson 'nelly' hat tribute! Grin

i totally forgot i did this project, but my friend reminded me with pics from her christmas party!  it was a tree trimming party, and i thought what better to represent me but making a smaller version of one of my favorite patterns?  last minute, i thought it would be awesome to stick someone's face in it so a friend found Jessica Simpson, pasted it onto some card stock, stuffed the finished hat with cotton balls and secured the pic in place!  definite scrap yarn project (which i posted asking about, duh) for next year!   Tongue
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / scrap yarn projects? or what the hell can i do with my stash? on: January 20, 2004 10:11:22 PM
i've come to the point where i'm looking at the mountain of yarn that has become my stash and saying "what have i done?"  i've totally become one of those people where new yarn = temporary happiness... because i buy the yarn with specific projects in mind, and then something comes up and i put those projects down, and then next thing you know it's a year later and i'm still buying yarn.  so now, the questions are:

1) what do i do with all of those smaller piles of yarn left over from other projects, and

2) any ideas on how i could get rid of yarn i don't use?  like, i've heard of yarn-trades and i saw on someone's blog that they get a package of yarn in the mail and they swap two or three skeins from the box with something they don't want, yadda yadda...  does this really happen?
3  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / filipino classic - chicken adobo on: January 20, 2004 09:47:27 PM
couldn't help myself, but this is an awesome classic filipino dish and must be shared!   Grin

chicken (or any type of protein you would like to use - pork, beef, tofu)
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1 small onion, chopped
3 bay leaves
1/4 tsp peppercorns (or to taste)
3 Tbsp soy sauce
3 Tbsp vinegar
vegetable oil

in pot, saute garlic and onion in oil until onion is transparent.  add chicken and cook for 10 minutes.  add other ingredients and let chicken simmer until fully cooked.  serve with rice.

variation - replace vinegar with 3 lemon juice.  either way is YUMMY!

feel free to change the proportions to your taste.  i have never seen the same adobo recipe used EVER, so be creative!  also, if you have time to make this the night before, you can marinate it in the sauce before cooking.  more marination time = juicier and tastier meal!
