1  COOKING / Dessert / Hubby's marshamallow fondat cake on: May 30, 2008 11:46:42 AM
THis is my husband's first time working with marshmallow fondat.  Talk about interesting stuff.  SUPER sticky and sweet.  The cake was for our son's first birthday.  I think it turned out wonderful!!

2  COOKING / Dessert / Pink Fairy Cake on: February 20, 2008 03:36:46 PM
My husband worked all night on this cake.  It is three layers, covered in buttercream icing (dyed pink to match) and with a Barbie Fairy.  He also added tulle, and paper roses to give it a more delicate look.  I am soo proud of him!  Our newly 3 year old daughter was pretty impressed too!

And considering this was transported through a small Alaska snow storm, and into the humidity of a swimming pool facility, up a flight of winding, SLIPPERY steps, to where it sat on the table in the balcony area and held up beautifully!!

and from the side

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: Oh Gauge, why do you hate me so? on: February 08, 2008 09:48:02 AM
Its depressing.  Now I am scared to try other socks.  And of course I didn't do a gauge swatch, because I figured if it was to small for my 3 year old I would just use them on my toddler.  HAH!
Since I just forked over the money for FOUR (size 3-6) Addi Turbos at $17.50 each, I am a bit reluctant to buy more.  At least until the husband forgets I just bought those.  I can just see it now.  Me knitting socks on giant size 10 Addis.  Wow...
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Oh Gauge, why do you hate me so? on: February 07, 2008 11:14:09 PM
Sooooo, I am learning to knit 2 socks at time on one long circular needle.  Ok, got that part all figured out.  In fact I have worked 3 pairs already.  All are the same pattern and for toddler size 2-3 years old and all are the same worsted weight RH SS.  The problem is that the first pair was knitted on size 4 circs (as the pattern suggested) but they came out very tiny.  Like newborn baby tiny.  Ah well, I wanted a new set of Addi Turbo needles anyway, right?  So I bought size 5 and gave it a go.  And yet again, tiny.  Hmmm.  Angry knitter you say?  I agree.  Sooo again I go and get a nice shiny new set of size 6 Addis and knit like a fiend.  And once more tiny.  In fact they are so small I cannot even get them on my 8 month old son's foot (he is a large baby, but a baby nonetheless!) and so I am trying to figure out how the hell to get my gauge where it needs to be.  I am about 2 stitches and 2 rows off as far as I gather.  Any advice or suggestion?

That rocks!!!  I love how you felted it!
Is there a pattern you wouldn't mind sharing?  I would love to make one for my husband.  He sled all winter long with our toddler daughters.  And since we live in Alaska, its ALWAYS winter.  Well...nine out of twelve months anyway.

Are the Addi Turbo Straights as buttery smooth as their circular needles?
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Hubby's first lace!! on: December 20, 2007 11:58:58 PM
My husband and I took up knitting over the summer, and he has far surpassed me.  Here is his first attempt at lace, a scarf for my brother's wife.

I did try the scissors for paper but had no luck cutting the edges.
10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Felt Food need help! on: October 27, 2007 09:48:28 PM
I am trying to make felt foods for my daughter.  Nothing complicated, I thought.  Just two sheets in simple shapes with a bit of batting in between.  I searched on the forum but had no luck.
Ok so here are my questions. 

How do you get the nice scalloped edge?

Are you using old cheap-o felt or wool felt?

How do you cut the pattern?  Do you free hand, trace, or template the pattern?

Hopefully I can managed to pull together some resembling food for x-mas!
