41  Re: Magic Ball Knitting in Knitalongs by booglass on: May 04, 2007 02:17:13 PM

This is the shawl/wrap a made a few years ago as a first attempt at magic 8-ball knitting.  I made it for a Harry Potter Swap.

I have a bag of scraps that need to tied together......this KAL is inspiring me!

42  Re: Argyle Headband ** Chart Added** in Knitting: Completed Projects by booglass on: February 12, 2007 08:57:43 AM
I am a lucky girl since a friend made and gifted me this headband!  I was so inspired that I decided to overcome my fear of fair isle.  So I whipped up this version of the headband with hearts just in time for Valentine's Day using Cascade Fixation. 

Well the South American brand Fixacao which I suspect is actually Fixation.

44  Tamales - Costa Rican Style (Img Heavy) in Recipes and Cooking Tips by booglass on: December 20, 2006 05:55:10 AM
This year I got to see my abuela and mom make tamales from start to finish.  

1.  Leaves - Prepare the hojas (banana leaves) which are used here instead of corn husks.

2.   Masa - Tico tamales are made with white corn masa, mashed potatoes, chicken broth and pork lard. Yes the idea of lard is gross but the taste is out this world. And all tamale novices take note: the masa makes or breaks it. Once the masa has been cooked you are ready to stuff.

3.  Filling - Masa is smeared like butter on two banana leaves and the fillings are placed in the center of the flattened masa mound.  
 - Meat (normally pork)
 - Rice
 - A green olive
 - A slice of roasted red pepper
 - A prune (yes, a prune)
 - A slice of boiled egg
 - A dollop of a spiced tomato based sauce tops it all off.

4.  Folding - The tamal is now folded. In Costa Rica two tamales are stacked and tied togeteher for cooking. It is called a pina.

5.  Cooking - The tamales are boiled in hot water for an hour.

6.  Cooling - After cooking they are taken out of the water and neatly stacked to cool for two hours and then refrigerated.

And that is how you make Costa Rican style tamales.  Yum-a-licious!

46  Toddle Scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by booglass on: May 28, 2006 03:31:16 PM
I fell in love with this pattern the moment I saw it on knitty.com  Toddle is the scarf of choice for sophisticated toddlers everywhere.

I used Angora-Tweed from Garn Studio.

I guess I never posted my Ballet Tee.....I used Cotton Fleece in Barn Red and had to do a few adjustments to accomodate my bust.

Rather than start a new thread I thought I'd add my latest baby hat and scarf here.  I am calling it the Boho Baby Set because it has a bit of a bohemian port baby look.  Although, at the age babies aren't writing poetry or thinking deep thoughts but who says they can't look like they are!?!?
