Crocheted Away the First Day

Of the first day of 2011 BecandCall, and Loongirl came over for a day of crochet and ginger bread cookies.

We were all working on  Snotty Ripples Afghans.

Bec's-a color masterpiece

 

Mine-my eyes! my eyes!

In true ZPDK form, many people are making a crochet afghan, many patterns are being used, and much fun is being had.  As Bec said “Yeah, I think “rules” is just a word to indicate we have some thing that looks like order in our group. That’s how we roll.”

I also have a photo of one made by our very own FatCat!

Bright and Sassy!

So, you want to get in on the fun?  Well, if you need some crochet pointers, or inspiration, check out Lucy at Attic24.  Her Neat Ripple Pattern is full of instruction, and her blog is straight up filled with awesome.

Oooh, cookies.  Besides being a top notch zombie slayer, the Ogre is quite the chef/baker.  If I were to make cookies, they would be of the pilsbury premade variety.  The Ogre though got his mortar and pestle out and ground spices and made a delectable treat.

Here is the recipe he used-

It was really nice catching up with friends.  I miss everyone with all this work and school going on.

New Year’s Day 2012…COME OVER!

 

It’s 2011!!

I want to start eating healthy, today.  But we have all these delicious left overs!  The Ogre really out did himself and made a multi course meal with recipes from Disney.  No, not like Mickey Pancakes, food from the Disneyland and Disney World restaurants.

You too can own this lovely cookbook.  Available at Disneystore

 

Today is supposed to be the Grange Craft Day.  But really, I didn’t feel that it would be safe to drive in all this snow.  Non locals-please note, it’s Michigan, that is normally the case, but today, it’s 53 degrees and sunny.

So, if you’d like to get crafty over at my place…come on over!  I have a lot of food.
