11  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / United Colors of Benetton Circular Sweater on: August 29, 2006 01:08:15 PM
It is hard to tell from this picture, but this is a really awesome circular sweater with Fair Isle Motifs. I am totally going to make one. I think I am going to use the Elann Pinwheel Sweater as a base, but what about the motifs? Any suggestions on how to plan it out? In wedges?

Golden syrup is made from sugar cane, it is refined ad concentrated, whereas corn syrup is light.  It is actually a little difficult to get corn syrup in Oz.  I tried to get some to make fake blood, but I'm told glucose syrup should do.  I have that at least.

I found corn syrup in a health food store of all places over here. The slightest bit of research would reveal that high fructose corn syrup is actually a poison food, prominently featured in middle America's Wonder Bread and fried chicken diet! Yuck!

Not all Corn Syrup is High Fructose Corn Syrup.

Actually Tablespoons can be different, in NZ a tablespoon is 15ml and in Australia it's 20ml.
And yes, golden syrup is good for baking, yum!  The one annoying thing about american recipes: a "stick" of butter.  From what I've read online  sticks can be completely different weights depending on who/where the recipe is written as aswell :/

A stick is a volume measurment and is half a cup, so about 120 mL.
But it is also  a 1/4 pound (a pints a pound the world round)  which is about 113 grams.

Ribbing flares when you bind off unless you bind off the knits as knits and the purls as purls, this is becuase for most people knits and purls are different sizes.

How I do jogless rounds is hard to explain but easy to do.

First I mark the first stitch. Then I change colors, when I get back to the first stitch I slip it and move the marker so that what used to be the second stitch is now the first stitch.  I can either change colors again right now or keep knitting with the current stripe color. The next time I change colors I do the same thing.
15  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: Vegetarians. What do YOU eat? on: August 22, 2006 08:55:35 PM
I am not a vegetarian, but I like to go meatless a few meals a week. I just discovered a really yummy vegetarian (but not vegan) food base. I take warm brown rice and ricotta cheese and mix them together. This binds together very well, and is quite yummy all alone. But you can mix in some sauteed veggies, form them into balls or patties roll in breadcrumbs and pan fry. You can mix in chopped green chilis, chili powder, and black beans or pinto beans and use it as an enchilada filling. You can even mix in some sugar or honey, some milk and some dried fruit and scoop it into muffin tins and bake like 15 mins for a sort of brown rice fruit kugel. Kugel normally has eggs to make it custardy, so if you are okay with eggs you could stir in one or two.

Baking Powder is basically baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) with cream of tartar (tartaric acid) and cornstarch mixed in, so that less acid is required as an ingredient to produce a rise. Some Baking Powder is Double Action, which means it acts once from the acid/base interaction and once from the heat of cooking.

Cups, tablespoons, and teaspoons are volume measurements. 1 cup is 8 fluid ounces. 1 fl oz is about 30 mL so 1 cup is about 240 mL.

1 teaspon (tsp) is about 5 mL.
1 Tablespoon (Tbsp) is about 15 mL.
There are 16 Tablespoons in a Cup.

If you have a problem with yeasties you should always wear panties with a cotton crotch for good air circulation.

Very cute!
19  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: Tattooed Wedding Bands??? on: August 08, 2006 01:19:03 PM
I think the most important opinion to consider is your fianc's. Since he is not in favor of a tattooed wedding band, I think that should be the end of it.

I think it looks really cute and non-frumpy. Please don't take this as an insult, but I think you need a better (more supportive) bra to wear with it. It would make a world of difference.

A different bra, and I would go with slacks instead of the flowy skirt. I think it would make a big difference. I like it.
