Lattice Dishcloth

I finished a dishcloth today. This one is knit and it's called Lattice Twists & Eyelets.

I took the picture at a little bit of an angle so that you can see the cables better .. What do you think?

HPKCHC HMC 2 - Snow Day!

the HMC (HeadMistress Challenge) is to create something that will help you shovel.  So of course, what better help is there than someone to actually do the shoveling for me?!?!

I created this doll ... and I really wish "Alice" (the doll) could shovel the snow for me! :)

Tell me how cute she is?

PS - Alice - because I kept thinking of the song "White Rabbit" by Jefferson Airplane.  Alice for Alice in Wonderland .. and that song kept running through my head while I was making her.

HPKCHC Detention

Well, it's another month, and another round of classes to submit projects for.  My first one to submit is going to be detention .. because I want to WIP the First! :)

This is the before photo .. it has loose ends that need to be tidied, and I also need to put a handle on it ...

And here is the finished piece.  Looks nice, uh?

Star Trek "Red Shirts"

For my 6th HPKCHC class of the month I am submitting for Muggle Studies (make an item for fiction fandom) a Star Trek inspired cloth.  My own lacey design, this could be used as a dishcloth or as a candle mat or as a coaster .. it's fairly versatile ...

Explanation of the Red Shirt phenomenom.  Any red shirt person who went on an away mission in Star Trek was usually dead within a short period of time ..

Sunny Starter Smoothie

Another HPKCHC submission ... this one isn't knitting or crocheting though .. but it was fun.

My son really likes protein powders, although before today I have never tried one.  This is a drink that I made up today for myself to try.  I always have orange juice in the morning (it’s like coffee to me, I NEED orange juice or it’s not quite a good start to the day.) and I like yogurt, and I figured orange and vanilla would go well together, so add the powder, ice cubes to thicken, and (blend 10 seconds) wahlah … here’s the drink. Hope you enjoy it! J

Recipe:  1 cup orange juice, 1 container vanilla yogurt, a handful of ice cubes, and 1 scoop of protein powder.
