Birthday Steak- New Recipe #4

I surprised Hubby by making him steak for his birthday! I went to the butcher and picked them out all by myself! He's the grill master and picks the steaks to grill. I, on the other hand, was making them in the house.

FO: Sarah's Sweet Tea Shawl

Sarah is always hot and wears short sleeves or no sleeves at work. She wanted something that would still allow her to wear her short sleeves, cover her arms and not be too hot. I originally had another pattern picked out. I even had 10 rows crocheted on it. Then I saw a Ravelry friend make this shawl pattern and I knew it fit the bill for what Sarah was looking for.

Potato Pancakes: #1

1st new recipe of 2016! I made them 1/3/16.

FO: Kim's Hat

At the December craft fair- a coworker asked me if she thought I could replicate her boyfriends hat. The original met an unfortunate demise. I asked her to bring in the original to see what the pattern was & size. Worst thing I could say is I didn't think I could make it. I mapped out the original and went from there. 
It turns out- it fit perfect. This is thicker than the original- I can't seem to locate the proper yarn.
The Hunt Continues.

Crescent Wrapped Baked Brie

For Thanksgiving I made the usual baked brie- and it never baked through. 
I used a different brie than normal- it was thicker. I think it was part of the issue. 
I used apricot filling as a topping on one and homemade apple filling on the other. 
Better luck next time =)

FO: Double Corner Pot Holder

I wanted to try a pattern from a library book- in addition to making a new pot holder for Moi. 
I would use this pattern again. It makes a thick Pot Holder/Hot Pad

Sarah's Birthday Hot Pad

Miss Sarah had a birthday at the end of December- so I wanted to make her something =-)
What better than a useful Pot Holder/ Hot pad. It is double thickness- I used 2 strands of yarn.
I think I need to make myself one soon!

Started & Finished:  12/27/15
Yarn: Lily Sugar n'Cream Cotton- Pink and Purple
Hook: J
Pattern: Starfish Hot Pad by Jo Ann Loftis 
(From a book I got at the Library)

The pattern is 7 rows- but I skipped row 6 and went straight to 7 because it seemed big enough since I went up in hook size. The Hot pad curled a bit- so I hope as she uses it, it flattens out because of the heat from the dishes.
