Granny's Square


Yesterday, Mother's day, we sat in the sunshine, three generations of mamas and the rest of the family too. We sipped virgin Lotus Blossoms, ate yummy food,  chatted, and crocheted. Well, I crocheted. Everyone else just chatted. 

Virgin Lotus Blossoms

Mango Nectar
Peach Nectar
Fresh Lime Juice
Coconut Milk
Sparkling Water
Serve over ice

Proportions are totally at your own discretion. For less than virginal blossoms: replace coconut milk and peach nectar with coconut rum,  peach schnapps, and add a dash of cream.

Oh, that yarn just looks so snuggly! Snuzzly, squishy and delicious. The colors are scrumptious. :) Did you use a pattern for the spiral pillow or just wing it?

I like to wing it! I worry a little about following patterns.I know that at some point, if I want to make my favorite cardigan, I am going to have to, but not yet.

How on earth did you get the circles without the whole thing ruffling up on you???

I only added a stitch every other loop, and only when I noticed it starting to turn into a bowl. I think it was something like a double stitch every other loop on every other orange row. (ish)

Does that make sense?

Yes!
