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.

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!

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.

A fun time was had. Thank you for the invite. I'll have to try that cookie recipe in about 25 pounds from now.
