More Donuts In The Works

I stopped on the way to work this morning, and bought an iced coffee at Dunkin Donuts. The clerk asked me if there was anything else I wanted. Something possessed me at that point and I heard myself blurt out “A dozen donuts!” Yikes! I took the dozen donuts to work with me and put them out for my office companions to help themselves. I called it a Friday celebration. This inspired me to make a trip at lunch time to AC Moore, where I went shopping for donut ingredients. Actually, yarns the color of donuts…I can make some pumpkin donuts with cream cheese frosting.

I bought a print yarn and tried to make a blueberry donut. It didn't turn out quite the way I pictured. There was a great nutmeg color yarn at the store that I will pick up next time I have a coupon with me. I’m addicted to donuts – thankfully, they are the fiber arts kind and not the eating kind! Also in the photo is a chocolate donut with chocolate icing.

I also acquired another pattern magazine. Just what I needed – NOT! But there is the cutest pattern for baby bibs in it, and I’m really anxious to make one. It’s the Spring issue of Interweave Crochet.

I tested a scrubbie I made using Beadies yarn. I bought the yarn on sale from Herrschners - never tried it before, but I like it. I used it to make a couple of these scrubbies, as well as the skirt for Barbie's Easter outfit. The scrubbie was great! Perfect for the non-stick cookware, and it machine-washes and dries nicely.

Back to work on my grange fair project - a baby afghan. I'll update with more photos of that when I have a little more finished.


  1. Good Morning! Just want you to take a peek at my blog when you get a chance! My gosh you keep'em coming! These donuts of yours look so YUMMY!
    Thanks for the inspiration to try them! You always do beautiful work on whatever you do!!

  2. That's my kind of donuts. Won't gain weight with those around. I'm making some for my daughter to go with her play kitchen for Christmas.
