I don't think I can add much more to what's been said.....  wow!  I love it in two colours!  Might be added to my fall knitting list.....

The colours are rather limited (pastel, baby colours), but I love the way Bernat CottonTots knits up - very soft and washes well.  Last week I bought three big balls for $10 at Michael's.

I finished my version of this scarf last night!   I think I was the only person here in Calgary who woke and was excited to see snow this morning.   Cheesy

Thanks for posting your projects everyone - this was a fun knit and I love the SWS Natural Earth colours!
14  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Suggest New Boards and New Features / Re: machine knitting board? on: February 21, 2007 02:20:49 PM
I'll put in a vote!  I received an old machine from a co-worker of my mom's last fall and was completely blown away by it.  I made two afghans for Christmas gifts in about two weeks.  The finishing took longer than the actual knitting!  It would be great to see other people's projects for some ideas and inspiration, and to have a place to ask questions!
15  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: to frog or not to frog...my first soc on: February 20, 2007 02:05:36 PM
I say rip it out!  Especially since they're socks and I'm assuming you're making a pair.  I had this problem with one of the first pair of mittens I made - one looked terrible, the other much better.  Now I kind of wish I'd had the patience to start the first one over again. 

Chalk it up to practice knitting and start them over!
16  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Got the new Interweave Knits! on: February 20, 2007 12:00:17 PM
This is the first issue of IK that I've actually bought, so I don't have a strong opinion on the new layout.  I do like having all the big pictures of the patterns together.

People upset about a knitted thong?  I could understand if maybe the picture actually had someone wearing it, but it's just on a hanger! 

The two items I like enough to possibly make are the green bamboo tunic (soon! for spring!) and the aqua topdown cabled sweater (maybe next fall).

Cool - thanks!  I actually haven't had time to even look at sewing machines yet, so your post isn't too late.  Life is what happens when you're making other plans, right?   Wink
18  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Chicago Bears pillow on: February 02, 2007 11:43:28 AM
Awesome!  I made Giants toques for my dad and brother for Christmas; too bad they didn't get to wear them too long in the playoffs.   Cheesy   I want to make something with the Bengals logo on it for a friend and toque wouldn't show off the detail - but a pillow would be perfect (purrfect?)  Thanks for posting your project!
19  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: what do you wish people told you before you became a vegetarian/vegan on: February 01, 2007 12:17:27 PM
I worry a little about the "like a food allergy" point of view...since I have friends with life-threatening food allergies, I'd rather just say that I'm a vegetarian, and that "anyways, I'm here for the company, not the food".  I almost always eat before I go anywhere unless I'm sure that there will be vegetarian food available. 

So true! 

Like someone else mentioned, I do worry about being seen as picky, but lately I've been trying to speak up and remind people ahead of time if food is being ordered at work or suggest alternatives to going to a steak house for lunch.   I wish someone had told me long ago that no one takes it personally and that it's better to say something up front instead of groaning while looking at the menu and being stuck with the only veggie option. 

And I do wish someone had said it's more than just removing the meat and being left with the veggies and potatoes.  It's literally a whole world of new food.   Grin
20  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: Chinese veg? on: February 01, 2007 12:00:02 PM
I cook Chinese and other Asian food a few times a month and I've found that once you have the basic "taste" down, you can modify recipes to suit the ingredients you have on hand or available. 

Taking books out of the library, veggie or not, and trying a few recipes helped a lot!

If you like spicy food: Land of Plenty by Fuchsia Dunlop - she has a ton of great Sichuan recipes - mapo tofu, spicy eggplant, kung pao chicken (modified, obviously  Wink)
