Always wanted to learn to make cold process olive oil soap? Scared of lye? What the heck is saponification?

Wow, those look incredible! I love love love the rosemary, mint and green clay one!

One question~on the honey one, you have honey listed before lye....so do you use more honey than lye? Or is it not listed in order of the amount that you use them? I am wondering because I used too much honey one time and it kind of leaked out in unattractive beads, I'm wondering if there is a secret to using lots of honey?!   Grin

No, that ingredient list isn't in order of amount, I probably should be more careful to do that. I just type them as they come to my head... LOL....It's probably about the same actually.  I make really small batches - I think the lye on that one was 3 oz ... and I put a good bit of honey in directly after I mixed in the liquid (when its in milky stage). If you put it in after it starts to trace, I've had problems as well.

I love the color that the honey turned the soap during curing!

Flax, orange, cinn and juniper!

Rosemary, mint and green clay. I need to practice my swirling and be more adventurous.

7  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My first two sweaters! on: October 05, 2008 07:21:06 PM
So this one is a free pattern from Drops Design. I used Red Heart Super Saver since it was my first and I didn't want to make a big investment. I'm pleased with how it came out! Husband thought I needed a pipe in the photo... LOL

This was before I had sewn the other sleeve on. hehe

This is the Lion Brand Country Car Coat. I used the Thick N Quick when it came on sale at michaels at about half price. YAY!!! I paid for this pattern, which honestly kind of sucked and wasn't worth the 4 bucks. It was a simple pattern, SUPER fast and easy to work up, but there were a lot of corrections and some unclear places in it. I think they have a VERY VERY similar pattern on there for free that doesn't look as bulky. It's called something-white I think.

Excuse the ends.  Wink

I think I made the Small, and it's VERY big and bulky. The pattern flares out at the hips, which is unfortunate b/c I don't need to accentuate my hips. LOL... If I ever work the pattern again, I will make the back all the same width (Same width as the top).

So I like to crochet sweaters; I look on ebay often for lots of yarn on the cheap b/c we all know that 10-12 skeins of nice, non Red-Heart yarn can get pricey!!

So I see cones of yarn a lot ... is this meant for crochet/knitting? I've assumed it's more for weaving?

Doy, that's it. I was trying to apply that to the beginning of the row I want to decrease, but you decrease at the end. Bleedin hell why was I making that so hard.

THANK YOU!!! *Smooches*
