Nice!  I love the different color variations.  What yarn did you use?

How fun!  I love that it could be used all year round.

Thank you for the kind words Smiley 

The actual weaving only took about 6-7 hours for both towels (including breaks and fixing mistakes as I went) but all of the setup (measuring the warp, beaming, threading the heddles, sleying the reed, etc) probably took an additional 12+ hours and doing the hems was another 2-3 hours.  It sounds like a long time when I write it all out like that! Shocked

This was my first ever weaving project (second warp, the first was just to get a feel for weaving).   After cutting the towels off the loom, I did a quick zig zag stitch before washing, then pressed and hand stitched the hems.  They have some problems (I was having issues keeping a consistent width) but I'm really happy with them overall Smiley

5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Recently completed blankets on: December 12, 2016 06:56:58 PM
Thanks for the kind words, ladies!  I was a bit nervous about the colors for the first one but I'm really happy now that it's done.   The first one will be a Christmas gift for my mom and the owl will be for my niece Smiley

Here are 2 of my recently completed blankets.  Both were done as part of CALs over the last couple months and will be Christmas gifts.  I'm still a relatively new crocheter (about 18 months) so I learned a lot doing these two blankets (standing stitches, front/back post stitches, surface stitches, etc).  I'm really happy with how they both turned out.  Smiley  

This one is called Demelza

And this is the Sunshine Owl

There are more pictures/details on my Ravelry project pages.  Thanks for looking!
7  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Beet amigurumi on: November 16, 2016 08:21:41 PM
I haven't done much amigurumi but I have a co-worker who's last day is Friday and I wanted to make him something special (he loves beets).  I made this little guy in a couple hours and I'm really happy with how it turned out!  Smiley

Here's the link to the patten I used - http://www.nyanpon.com/2012/08/beet.html?m=1

I love the bottom one!  Such bright and cherry colors Smiley
9  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Chickpea cutlets with herb scalloped potatoes and pan roasted broccoli (Vegan) on: June 29, 2016 05:47:54 AM
I have a mild obsession with vegan cookbooks, so over the weekend I pulled out an old favorite - Veganomicon

I made the Chickpea Cutlets (oven roasted instead of pan fried and pictured with some dijon mustard on top), Herb Scalloped Potatoes (I substituted lots of fresh rosemary, thyme and basil for the dried herbs) and did some pan roasted broccoli on the side.  It was so good and my mouth is watering just thinking about it  Cheesy
