Hilarious! Just don't become too attached to it - remember, you will have to euthanize it eventually...  Wink

What a fun way to try out colorwork. Way to go.

I love the expression on your poor little pumpkin's face. The stem makes for such a good nose! A wonderful idea.

And I would love to see a lit-up picture of your friend's pumpkin. To me, it's definitely a vampire in that classic cloak-lifted-to-cover-the-face pose, right before he decides to attack. Hilarious. I love it.

Oh My Goodness.
These look much to good to be cut up!

I can't help but try to imagine the amount of work you put into these cakes. I have no idea of the difficulty involved in decorating cakes, but I am officially in awe of your skills. Beautiful!!
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: how do you get over the fear of socks not being the same size? on: June 23, 2007 05:36:02 PM
When I knit my first pair of socks, I felt somewhat like you.

What if I made some mistake knitting the second one, now that the first one was done?
Or worse yet, what if the second one turned out different, but so much better than the first one that I'd end up frogging the first because I couldn't stand it?!

In the end, I didn't even try to make a perfect copy of sock nr. 1.
I had knit the first from the cuff down, so I simply cast on for sock nr.2 at the toe. Knitting from the toe up was a new skill, and that way, I figured I could at least justify the unavoidable differences between the two socks to myself...

Rest assured: My non-knitter boyfriend does not notice the difference. My feet do not notice the difference.

Still, whenever I put on that first pair of socks, I have a wacky feeling that I'm wearing fraternal twins instead of identical ones.

Seriously, though: If you use "real" sock yarn, you would have to try very hard to change your gauge by so much that you'd notice. After all, what's another stitch or two when you're doing 30 per 4".

Very nice!

When it comes to knitting baby clothes, I always take the easy way out (i.e. very simple construction, next to no texture, knits up in 3 hrs), so it's a great change to see such a wonderful garment.
I love the cables and bobbles and allover texture!!

It's precious.

Sorry, manda, I can't think of any German meal that contains pork, peas and white gravy. Maybe it's something so basic that I'm thinking right past it!

I'll keep thinking about it, though, and if I come up with anything I'll tell you. And like cadillac.tramp I'll keep my eyes open at the stores. Who knows!

ryangoff, thanks for the explication.

I asked because when I first saw this, the shape of the piece of wood reminded me of the wooden plates a lot of people use here in Germany to eat (cold) supper, which consists of bread, mainly.

Wouldn't that just be the sweetest thing, eating off Calvin's nose? Wink

I think I have to get some plain small cutting boards and try this!
Let me rephrase that: I need to try this on scrap wood and then get the boards...

Way to go, you chose a wonderful image and did a great job!

I only just found out about woodburning when you posted this and have been reading up on it. Here's my question: Is the finished object usually used for decoration, or would you eat off it, or what? A whole new world is opening up to me... Smiley

The only green package I can think of is Knorr Sauce Hollandaise. You can check out a picture at knorr.de -> Knorr Produktwelt -> Knorr Saucen -> Knorr Feinschmecker Saucen

However, you might have simply had what's called Helle Soe in Germany, a generic white gravy that's sold by a whole bunch of brands.

Can you give me a more detailed description? (Ha ha, I sound like Eliza: Can you elaborate on that?)

Did you add only water, or butter as well?

Side note: I DO hope someone finds that mix for you, cause I can relate: I had the most amazing beef jerky that was wrapped up like candy while travelling in China. I threw away the wrapping, and when I got to the next store, turns out they have a gazillion different brands. Most of them taste nasty. Never found it again... Sad

That's a perfect combination!
I just love it when that happens, you take 2 pieces of clothing, and together, they somehow become something different altogether.

Great FO, way to go!
