Weekend Craftiness

Here’s a view from Peet’s Hill, where we watched fireworks friday night. There were amateur fireworks (the $$ kind) going off constantly for the hour or so until the main show. I can’t believe how many people do fireworks here (and continue to do them all weekend long). Where I grew up, fireworks were illegal within city limits so it’s new to me.

I’ve been extra crafty this weekend…it’s that whole rule that says the more you have going on the more you accomplish. We’re leaving for TX next week and I am trying to finish a lot of big stuff, but I added some holiday fun to the mix, along with this project, which I meant to do on the plane (but oops, I’m nearly finished).


It’s a crocheted bodice (or dress, if you so desire) from last summer’s Crochet Today. I saw it again on Ravelry, realized it looked good even on bigger people, and found 2 skeins of luster sheen in my stash. I’m about 80 percent of the way done- I have a sleeve to attach and then I’ll work the collar and bodice edging. I see no real way that this would take 3 skeins as the pattern suggests, but I’ll let you know if I’m wrong. I might change the borders from the pattern depending on how I’ll sew the fabric to the bottom of the bodice (to make a shirt…or dress), we’ll see. My one concern is that the half-circle part of the bodice might not contain my bust, so it may get cut off in that weird seam line on  your bust way (I’m trying to avoid words that will make weird traffic steer through this crafty blog!). I’ll figure something out, it’s pretty stretchy, and the pattern is easy to follow, so yay. I really have never followed a clothing crochet pattern and I figured it was high time to try. My main problem is that I am NOT a sweater person and I’m not about to make something I won’t wear. It was -20 this year and I still own about two real sweaters. So I was delighted to find this pattern made with thinner yarn. Knowing me it will still be relegated to fall/spring, but that’s okay in my book.

As my final weekend ‘making’ project, these sweet things just came out of the oven (tho the pic above is of them before going in). I made them for a little cookout we’re having tonight. I got the recipe here–I like the premise behind the site and it was so easy to follow so I gave it a shot. I haven’t tasted them yet but I did taste the batter and it was delicious. Sometimes it is nice to have 3 guys (Paul and his friends) with big appetites around so I can make these terribly unhealthy things and not devour them all myself. I also made this super tasty curried pasta salad which I have been eating all weekend (even for breakfast!). I did just what it said minus cilantro, raisins and red onions and it is still dang good! I may just whip up some mashed potatoes too for tonight, what the heck.

Sometime this week I’ll post about my 2nd version of Simplicity 4589. I made more alterations this time, which was a good thing. First I need to wash it, because I wore it on Friday when, for some reason, we thought it’d be a good idea to walk to the museum and back in 102 degree heat. Not. Smart. At least there was free ice cream.

  • super cute top! I'm making it too - my bodice is finished and I've been procrastinating for months on attaching the fabric part. I didn't find that there was a risk of the annoying cutting-off-at-the-bust thing... I'm sending good vibes your way. You're inspiring me to finish mine now. wanna race? :)
