Crochet Boot Cuffs

20170530_181646

Yesterday all I managed to make was dinner and these Crochet Boot Cuffs.  I had another Drs appointment, which affected most of the day, but I didn’t want to not post today!

These boot cuffs fall into our Quick and Easy Crochet week well.  It only took just over an hour to make both of them from start to finish! I know it really isn’t boot weather now but they would make great Christmas gifts if you are like me and start planning what you are doing this early!

I took different aspects I liked out of various boot cuff patterns I had read and turned those into these!  I will include the pattern below!

Pineapple Cherry Dump Cake

Last night I finally tried a dump cake recipe that I found on Pinterest, courtesy of http://www.cupcakesandcutlery.com/cherry-pineapple-dump-cake-recipe/ and I have to admit it was really, really good.

I just could not wrap my head around how something like this could work and be delicious at that.  It smelled so good while it was baking, I think both Chris and I might have been drooling a bit waiting for it to be done lol!  I still had my doubts at this point that it would turn into anything other than a sweet smelling mess… boy was I wrong!  Now I have so many thoughts going through my head about what else I could “dump” into a cake pan like this and enjoy!

I will do a quick run down of what I did but the “recipe” is on cupcakesandcutlery’s website at the link above!

Mexican Wiener Wrap

I saw this recipe on the Pillsbury website: https://www.pillsbury.com/recipes/crunchy-nacho-dogs/5aa85f70-4c05-4084-a66f-cddede49ec23 and it just looked so good I decided to try it.

As it happens, Chris had a few friends over to “play” in the shop today so between them and Dillon I had plenty of taste testers for this recipe! And it received all thumbs up!

Now, I of course changed it up a bit from the way it was on the Pillsbury website but for the most part kept it pretty close!

Crocheted Baby Neck Tie

This week we are going to be posting Quick and Easy Crochet patterns we have found or created.

Today I am posting a Baby Neck Tie Pattern.  I made two of them and it took me less than 2 1/2 hours from start to finish, including time outs to reply to texts and emails lol!

This is a very simple pattern, worked in half double crochet stitch.  I originally tried doing it in single crochet but it looked too holey for my liking so I reverted to the HDC. I just made them in a worsted weight yarn and a size 5 crochet hook, one in black for formal occasions and the other in a bright green for not so formal occasions lol! Finished the tie itself is about 9″ long. 

Just a note, while I was crocheting this I was listening to my 8 lb. cat Lulu snoring like a drunk lumberjack…. really, she is that bad lol… and my mind started to wander to the possibility of making even smaller versions of these for cats… and maybe dogs too.  I will update with pictures if I actually follow through on this!
