1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Re: Envelope-style laptop jacket on: June 13, 2007 06:16:28 AM
This is super cool!  Was it hard to make?

Not for me because my friend did all the work.  Seriously though - we just cut out the fabric and sewed it (inside out) almost all the way around, then turned it right side out, and closed up the rest of the seam by hand.  Trifarina stitched around near the edge for a nicer finish and to keep the fleece from moving inside.  Then i sewed on the velcro.  Very easy.  We were going to make hers with some white tapestry and purple velvet but she got cold feet - too... I don't know...  Prince?

Trifarina you have outdone yourself this time.  Beautiful work as always, and you are a super nerd.  Miss you -

Very nice job Trifarina
Your prowess with the crochet hook is approaching the level of your expertise with the tiny wetted paint brush
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Vegan friendly yarn suggestion on: December 26, 2006 11:40:32 PM
I guess I'm playing devil's advocate here... but all those synthetic fibers are petrochemical products, and really energy expensive to produce.  Also not biodegradable. Seems like there are a lot of options in wool products that are a lot more environmentally responsible than the artificial fibers.

But that's the principle I use to make my choices.  What else is guiding our yarn buying choices?  Just wondering what everybody thinks...
6  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / seaweed salad like what's served at sushi restaurants on: December 26, 2006 10:36:33 PM
Hi all,
My husband and I love the seaweed salad served at sushi restaurants.  We have been rolling our own at home for a while and are looking for more ways to incorporate sea vegetables into our diet.  I googled around and it seems like the "restaurant" style seaweed salad is usually sold pre-made?  If the "internet experts" are correct, the salad is made with wakame stems and agar with a dressing of chili flakes, mirin, sushi vinegar, and sesame seeds. 

My problem is, although I have access to Asian markets I can only seem to find the usual wakame leaves, not the stems.  Have I got the recipe wrong?  Any help appreciated.

here's a link to a photo of the salad I am seeking:

Speaking of blocking - I just made my 4th (!) pair of knucks and I was thinking about blocking them but I am not sure how to set them up to dry.  Pin to a cushion?  stuff with small rolls of newspaper?  how does one block gloves?

Here's my first one, I used a leftover ball of wool, don't remember what kind. the wool kind of fuzzed up when i blocked it and it didn't do much for the stitch definition.  I think the key to making these look nice is use yarn with good stitch definition and use needles that are too big for the yarn.  This was made with 3 wraps but I'll be using 4 from now on.
