Two failed attempts.
Can you guess what they were supposed to be?
After I saw Becca's post about them and a link to the pattern at Planet M Files, I decided to give it a go. I mean, after all, it was supposed to be a "very quick and easy pattern". You would think after all my years of crocheting, I would get it right on the first try, but my pattern reading skills truly are lacking at times.
I guess the third time IS a charm as I finally have something that at least resembles a lovely little pinecone. The pattern does call for a lot of slip stitching which I found to be fiddly. I may or may not make a few more.
Next up was a recipe I've wanted to try for a while. Carrot, cumin and kidney bean falafels from the blog A Girl Named Jack.
They were shallow fried in vegetable oil but I wound up also putting them under the broiler for a little while to try and crisp them up. We had them for lunch with roasted sweet potatoes, salad and spicy pita chips. Yummy!
And finally, food for thought from Nelson Mandela along with a snapshot of the end of yet another day.
Hope you are having a wonderful day in your little corner of the world.
