1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitters: What are your values and norms? on: October 05, 2010 12:54:50 PM
Hi all,
I'm working on a sociology project on subcultures, and I decided to give a speech on the subculture of knitters! Yay! In my speech, I'm supposed to discuss the symbols, language, values, and norms of knitters. I've got the first two down, but I'm having trouble thinking of what the values and norms of knitters are, so I thought I'd ask you all.

values: standards that people use to decide what is desirable, good and beautiful, and that serve as a guideline for living.

norms: rules and expectations by which a society guided the behavior of its members.

So, what do you think are some values and norms of knitters as a whole?

Thank you so much in advance for your replies!

Diane- I think I will try the wire cutters again. The ones I bought are mainly for wire stripping with a small area for cutting. do you think you could post a picture of the kind i need would look like?

I do have to cut them becuase I need to back absolutely flat in order to glue flat pad earring posts onto them, so hammering or bending wouldn't work.

Mansonette- I tried that. The pliers keep slipping, and the metal posts are close together already, so it doesn't work.

10  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / ~Wanna get rid of old bags of chips and croutons? don't waste! (Fried Chicken!) on: June 26, 2009 09:38:27 AM
Do you have bags of chips that are only a 10th full?  How about old bags of croutons that got pushed to the back of the pantry? Don't know what to do with them? If so, read on!

I think, that, in this economy, nothing should go to waste.

Yesterday, my mother and I had an intense craving for fried chicken. She was ready to deep fry, but I offered to try to oven-fry the chicken instead. The chicken was ready, but when we checked the pantry, we couldn't find the breadcrumbs we thought we had. There were just a 1/3 bag of two week old potato chips, 3 bags of croutons from last months party, a 1/4 tin of french fried onions, and a sandwich bag of rice chex, all of which we were planning on throwing out.It was seven o'clock, and, not wanting to disappoint, I had my mother relax in the living room and I got to work! I put salt, pepper and garlic on the chicken legs. Then, in a separate bowl,  I crushed all of the chips and croutons and onions very finely (And added some parmesan cheese). After brushing the legs with a butter-garlic mix, I rolled them in the coating mixture, and put them in the oven at 375 degrees for 1 hour, flipping halfway through.

They came out really yummy!!!! And we didn't waste!

I hope you enjoy the recipe as much as we did.

Here's a picture of them after about 5 minutes in the oven:
