As a Valentine's Day gift, I quickly knit up this brother and sister set. What do you think?

Huit                                                           He has a snazzy little beret in brown wool.

Petit                                         She has a ponytail and bangs of matching brown wool.

The colors in the pics are kinda off, they're a pretty baby blue yarn. Just about actual size!

Their tags are on cardstock just to introduce themselves and can be removed.

4  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / NEW ZEALAND / Hamilton/Waikato Groups on: January 11, 2006 05:31:16 PM
Hiya, everyone.
I just moved to the area from the States and i'm looking to join up with any knitting/sewing/crafting groups out there. Anybody interested? Or, if anyone just wants to have coffee (or a beer, whatever) give me a shout.

5  EUROPE / GERMANY / Berlin, Berlin on: March 02, 2005 06:22:37 AM
Hey, other German craftsters. I am an American living in Berlin (near Warschauer Str) ,working at Adlershofer Kostumfundus making costumes, hanging out, having fun in the snow (!). Anyone have suggestions for good fabric/sewing supplies. I hate going to KaDeWe and those giant places and want to find/support local little shops. Any hints?
6  UNITED STATES / North Carolina / *South* Carolina on: February 17, 2004 10:59:14 AM
Hey everybody. I'm a native Charlestonian but I've been living in California for about 8 years. Now, I'm moving back to the Carolinas. I was wondering if anybody knows of resources around my neck of the woods that I can go to. I realize that I'll have to do a lot of exploring on my own to find fabric shops, bead stores, etc, but any help would be greatly appreciated.
Plus, if there's anybody in Ashville, I plan on going up there to see some friends every now and again, so any places there I should see?

9  COOKING / Dessert / Super Easy, Super Yummy Chewy Chocolate Chip Bars on: February 11, 2004 06:03:25 PM
My mom taught me the recipe for these when I was a kid and it's so easy that I've never forgotten.

Preheat the oven to 350.

Melt 1/2 cup (1 stick) of butter. I usually do this in the microwave in a microwave safe bowl like Pyrex.

Stir in 1 cup of light brown sugar, packed.

Stir in 1 teaspoon of baking powder, 1 teaspoon of salt, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla.

Stir in 1 large egg. At this point, the batter should be pretty liquid.

Stir in 1 cup of flour. Don't worry if the batter is still thin and "goopy". It should be.

Throw in as many chocolate chips and/or caramel chips as you want ( i usually use half a bag).

Pour batter in an ungreased pan, a 9 or 10" square works well for thick, chewy brownies.

Bake for approx 40 minutes.
When you take it out of the over, it should still look a little gooey. Slice into squares while still hot but wait till cool to gobble them up!
