Thanks for the tutorial!  I've been meaning to make a pencil pouch for the longest time, but haven't had the time while in class.  Well, finals were this week, and I finally had time!

The pendant is her property.  She can do anything to it she wants to.

do you know how you could make one that's already been chained up and used a bit?
i have a friend who has epilepsy and she's 15, and HATES it.
i'd love to make it for her as a surprise.

If you have pliers available, you could probably take off the chain (there should be two rings holding it onto the pendant) and replace it with something like what I made.  You could have rings on either end and use the pliers to close them in, or you could do the lobster claws to attach the bracelet to the rings.

this is a great idea and the change out is great.  i didn't think you could use fishing line with a lobster claw, so I learned something new.  Did you tie knots around the loopy thing on the clasp?  thanks

Pretty much.  Before the first, and after the last strand, I tied knots through the loops and hid the tails inside the beads.  Between the strands, I did a single loop of the fishing line through the clasp to reduce bulk.

I've been shopping around for a medical bracelet for a while, but all I've found has either been hideous or too expensive.  When I found a pre-engraved tag for really cheap on Ebay, I decided to make my own.

The three strands were strung on a single piece of fishing line anchored with a lobster claw on either side. Each strand follows a different pattern using the same four types of beads.  Because of the lobster claws, if I get tired of this bracelet, I can easily switch it out for another one.

Glucose syrup and corn syrup are pretty much the same thing.  We do have malt syrup here, apparently, at health food stores I think.  I've never noticed it but I saw local places that sold it online when I looked.
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Trilobite Hat on: August 21, 2009 09:40:08 PM
Hey Craftsters!  I knit a hat!

It's the Trilobite hat from Knitty, knit with size 6 needles and Queensland Collection Kathmandu Aran yarn.  I used just slightly over one skein, so I have enough left over to make one for my bio-nerd brother if I cut a few rows off the ribbing.

I cast on the day the summer issue of Knitty came out and was the second person on Ravelry to finish it.  It's a little frustrating having a nice new winter hat finished in the middle of the summer, but from when I tried the hat on, it's nice, soft, and warm.  The yarn is silk, cashmere, and merino, and considering how itchy any kind of wool usually is for me, I think this yarn is a miracle.  The color isn't one I would normally like (I got the yarn in a mystery bag from discountyarnsale.com), but it really works for this hat.

The pattern is GENIUS and I can't wait for the weather to cool down so I can wear it!

This looks yummy - thanks for posting the recipe! Im kind of addicted to sugar, and when I started to consider veganism I thought Id be stuck with dark chocolate for the rest of my life  Sad, but Im slowly realising how many possibilities there are  Grin.

They actually make vegan milk chocolate.

I want some...question is what is nuterlex?

I looked it up, and it's a margarine in Australia.  Folk in the US/Canada can use Earth Balance (that's my preferred vegan margarine).  Now, where to find glucose and malt syrup...

Recipe please!  I've been vegan for 8 years and have been craving caramel practically the whole time!
