1  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / I need some MAJOR advice; Vegetarianism on the GO on: February 07, 2007 09:23:32 PM
I've never really liked meat, but consumed it for the sake of my family's sanity in feeding me. However, being now 18, and it becoming a new year I decided to go fully vegetarian. I cannot consume meat now even if I wanted to, it makes me feel physically sick now. But heres my problem. I'm on the go pretty much constantly. Which means of course, no time to cook. So I'm basically dying of starvation and malnutrition. That's an exaggeration, but it is definitely becoming a huge problem. When I DO have time to eat, all I seem to consume is utter CRAP (meaning food with no nutritional value whatsoever). All I can seem to do is snacks. Even if I try healthy snacks, they do not fulful my nutritional needs, nor fill me up. I need some ways to eat MEALS... on the go. WIthout the need to cook. It's becoming a serious problem as I am constnatly lightheaded and weak, and would like to be healthy as possible. I made an appointment with my doctor to talk about options I have, but it is not until a month from now. Unfortunately, I cannot wait that long and need something to tide me over. I'm a generally sick person anyway, I catch every illness that comes in my path and I realize that not eating appropriately is definitely making me even more susceptible. Any tips? I can't be the only one.
2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Cannot find the other end... and I'm getting frustrated. on: November 15, 2006 10:14:06 AM
I have a patternrequiring I use the outside end of the yarn skien and the inside... so that i knit with both strands. I usually never have a problem finding the inside... and when I do I roll it into a ball. But this skien is over 1000 feet, so the rolling of a center pull ball seems a bit tedious and too time consuming.

I can't find the damn thing, I've tried pulling from both ends in the center, and I've got nothing. I've tried the finger wagging trick on both ends, and come up with the same mess and no end.

Anyone else have any suggestions?

Is there any way to avoid knitting with the double strands at all, and still get the same thickness in the end of the project?
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / This poor hat... on: March 30, 2006 01:39:09 PM
I made my first hat [it's my second project].

I swatched and everything.

Yet its too big. OH WELL. =D Atleast I got practice with seaming [knitted on two needles].

I didn't plan on wearing it anyway, it was more for practice than anything else.


So rock and roll.
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / My first scarf. on: March 29, 2006 10:10:02 AM
Just learned a month or so ago, and I completed this about two week ago.

It was supposed to be a scarf from a pattern in the "I Taught Myself How to Knit" book [it didn't help me at all...]. But I ended up changing around the colors, and lengthening the color sections. I also made the scarf longer because I love long scarves.

I used Lion Suede yarn for this. The colors look off in the picture, the colors are really teal, red and off-white.

Im working on a matching hat, though I doubt I'd ever wear the matching hat =P
