Oh man, these are gorgeous! I recognize the pic of the little boy with the frog and the little girl under an umbrella -- what book is that? So sweet.

So, not to be nosy, but how do you do these? Cut out the paper and modge-podge them to wooden discs, and attach pins? They are so lovely...

Mmm, apple butter! And an L-shaped handle. What a good idea.

So, I haven't gleaned from the previous pumpkin butter debate on this thread: is apple butter safe to can with a water bath? I'm sure, graced, that you do it beautifully; I am such a beginner, though, that I'd want to be sure it's very safe (and relatively idiot-proof) before I try it!

Oh my god I love Koalas! Those are so adorable, and look very well done. Where did you buy the pattern? (I imagine you bought it, or made it up, since a pattern that rockin' doesn't come free...)

Good job!

Oooh, now I am craving pickles! Will lunchtime never come?

I have have good and bad experiences so far with canning. The first time, last summer, I tried doing blackberries. I was uber-anxious; a coworker who cans never found time to show me, but found time to insist over and over that I had to be careful or I would KILL someone. Yes, lady, I know! I've been reading about it because you won't teach me...

Anyway. Blackberries. Didn't try a jam, but I should have. They sealed fine and I boiled them, but when I opened them a few months later, there was a slightly boozy smell about them. Fermentation, I'm sure, but no idea how it happened, esp. since they sealed okay and I was very careful. So my idea of canning was not great, esp. since I'd spent all day in the summer over pots of steaming water.

A few weeks ago, I tried again, a small batch of apricot jam (recipe here: http://www.justhungry.com/2006/06/weekend_project.html). So good! Small batch, easy recipe, not too much sugar, and no pressure (literal or figurative). It comes out soupy, more like sauce than jam, but I liked it. So now I think I will try canning again, small batches, until I know exactly what I'm doing.

Sorry for the long post! Keep the recipes and ideas coming...

Thanks for the help, guys. Good idea about the contrasting heels and toes! Will have to find something a leetle less pricey for that...

Thanks for the youtube vids! I saw the movie last Friday and spent a good deal thinking of how we knitters were all distracted by the gorgeous sweaters, scarves, hats...

I love Luna's green/blue hat, in Hogsmeade.
48  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Socks that Rock (STR) yardage - one skein enough? on: July 18, 2007 09:19:16 AM
Hey sock knitters,

I know there is a love affair with STR out there, but I have a question. Not realizing the yardage, I picked up two skeins a year or so ago, intending them to be two pairs of socks (diff. colorways).

My skeins are only 360 yds each, of the lightweight (8 st/in) sock yarn. (I think STR now makes skeins with 400+ yds, but that's NOT what I have, sadly.)  Do you think 360 yds of such thin yarn is enough for a pair? I could try toe-up, I suppose, but am trying to ward off any catastrophes...
