1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Honey cowl on: July 02, 2015 08:58:57 PM
I recently finished the Honey Cowl (free pattern from Madelinetosh). I used Manos del Uruguay Maxima in Limerick. I CO 320 stitches so it's long enough to comfortably wrap around twice (although I think about 280 stitches would have been enough).

I made another pillow a few weeks ago using some apple fabric and some vintage dutch fabric (both received years ago in craft swaps! so good to finally put them to use). I made this one a little bit bigger, so it can be used for the lower back also.

thank you all for your lovely comments  Cheesy

i am in australia so i don't think i would be able to buy deer feed. i did read that rice can burn easily in the microwave so i will ensure to only heat it for about 1.5 minutes at a time. i also read that lightly misting the bag with water before hand can prevent the rice from burning.

i'm not planning to make these for sale, but i agree with SonjaBoo they would make great christmas gifts.

Hi all, wasn't sure whether to put this in Home/Beauty & Bath/Misc so feel free to move the topic if necessary.

I have recently had shoulder surgery and suffer from very tense muscles in this area and my neck. I have a long wheat bag that can drape around my neck but i find all the wheat just bunches at one end and I can never get it in the right spot, so I thought I'd try making my own with sections so the filling stays evenly distributed. The sections also mean it can be easily rolled up to put in a drawer/bag for travel. I couldn't buy wheat so I used uncooked rice with a bit of lavender oil. I am a very beginner sewer and it was my first try at top stitching so it's a little wonky in places but the dark fabric conceals it pretty well.

8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / help choosing wire gauge and hardness on: October 28, 2014 05:27:02 AM
hi guys, i want to recreate a necklace similar to the photo. just wondering for the wire star what gauge and hardness of wire i should choose. i want to make it in silver but i am a bit lost in terms of the gauge and hardness. i presume i need a low-ish gauge and possibly half hard for the star to not get bent out of shape during normal wearing??

would something like 14g, half hard be appropriate?

many thanks  Smiley

i highly recommend you give magic cake a try (even just the vanilla version) it's very yummy and so cool how it turns into a 3 layer cake whilst baking. here's where i found the recipe: http://www.jocooks.com/bakery/cakes/magic-cake/
