This is a really good chocolate vegan cupcake.  It was easy to make and even my omni boyfriend liked these a lot.

Umm, baked/grilled fruit with soy ice cream is always really good.  Whole fruit sorbets are my favorite, especially if it's hot out.

So what is a sewn bind off??  I have only knitted one pair of socks and I followed Knitty's basic toe up pattern as well.  I had the exact same problem where the bind off was soooooooooo tight!  Maybe I should give cuff down a try......

Here are the instructions for the sewn bind off that I use.  It looks a lot like a cast on edge, it's nice and stretchy, but still stable and pretty easy to do too.

The only bad part is, you can't rip it back easily.  You have to pick each bind off stitch apart separately.

I LOVE this with the long sleeves!  It's really beautiful.

I love your bag.  I have been experimenting with plastic bag yarn myself.  Besides bags, rugs and placemats do you have any other suggestions?  I am currently trying to weave mine with an old hemp yarn.  Please let me know any other ideas you may have.  I am very interested.


You could try to make a box.  You'd have to knit/crochet it pretty tight though so the sides would be stiffer, which would be pretty uncomfortable to work on.  I also saw some article about a lady that would braid plastic bags into rope then make sun hats out of them.  I guess they sold, but I think that would be very sweaty to wear on your head.

Anyway, that's a great plastic bag bag.  I recently knitted a tote bag with crocheted handles and was surprised how awesome it turned out.  How many plastic bags did yours take?  I swear mine took at least 40.

You should keep it.  You might move someday where the weather is more suitable for sweaters, or take a trip somewhere cool.

This is that Knitty pattern, Fetching, right?  You did a great job! 
I think this pattern was the first cabling I did.

Anyway, that's a great yarn that you used.  Do you know what it is?

a. That is a really nice sweater, and I bow before you and your knitting talent.
b. Your ex is a moron.  (Aren't all exes morons? Wink )
c. I have actually had a relationship that survived the "sweater curse".  I knitted a Doctor Who scarf for my then-boyfriend.  (Not a sweater, but still a lot of work.  Weaving in all those ends was not fun.)  Long story short, he and I have been married for 8-1/2 years.

Point C is a good test, I think.  Knit your boyfriend something and if you don't break up shortly afterwards, he's a keeper. 

Anyway, it's a beautiful sweater.

Wicked cute.  I just hope for the sake of your friend, that the baby doesn't live up to the hat's suggestion!

Rad!  Was that tough to make?

Tofu does take some time to learn to cook and (at least for me) took awhile to appreciate the texture and taste, but now I love it.
A couple of tofu tips:
If you don't want it to fall apart, buy the extra firm tofu.
For a meatier texture, freeze the package of tofu, thaw it out and press out as much liquid as you can.
For stir fries and other veggie/tofu mix, I ALWAYS cook the tofu first in oil at a highish temperature to brown the tofu and give it a little texture, then add the veggies.
