The baby blanket is finished. I made four stockinette mitres, used slip stitch to crochet them together, and crocheted a border–which is curling like the blazes. The whole thing is made in acrylic, and I’m not sure of the best way to flatten out that edge. Any suggestions?
I’ve never been a huge fan of marshmallows in their raw form (although I like them roasted while camping, and melted in hot chocolate in winter), and before going vegetarian had never tasted a s’more.
Enter Dandies vegan marshmallows, a slight chill in the air, and the craving for something melty and sweet.
This version, made with wholemeal saltine crackers, sugarfree dark chocolate with almond chips, and Dandies toasted under the grill, certainly didn’t disappoint. I actually think the addition of a little salt was a happy accident. I see many more of these in my future.
Ever since the first rainy day of Autumn late last week, I’ve had the strongest craving to knit and/or crochet a blanket. I’ve been drawn to all kinds of completed and in-progress projects on ravelry: stripes, ripples, squares, hexagons, knit, crochet–any kind of blankie will do.
And then I realised: apart from my main sweater project and an unfinished sock, I have several blanket projects in various states of completion on the backburner. This is the rundown.
1. The ripple afghan, begun September 2010. Currently measures 50″ x 19″.
2. The mitre square baby blanket for K4C, begun March 2011. Currently consists of 4 squares, crocheted together and awaiting a border.
3. Granny squares for Crochet a Rainbow, begun on Tuesday night. Currently three squares in.
4. A mitered crosses blanket from the genius pattern by Kay Gardiner; only a thought at this point, but growing more insistent by the day.
So what’s on your backburner?
