Granola

I made this a few days ago and thought I would share my experiences.

The oats turned out yummy, but I added a cup of raisins and a cup of dried cranberries before baking. The cranberries plumped up, they deflated again later, but the raisins burned. So now I have chewy and kinda hard burnt sweet pieces of something that looks black and scary in my granola. I suggest adding the fruit after baking to avoid burning it.

Chunky Slippers

I made these for my daughter to match the Gypsy Shawl, beanie and fingerless gloves I made her for Christmas 2013. They’re super easy and very warm.

I found the pattern on All Free Crochet. There’s even a video you can follow.

I’m not sure I like the feel of the stitches wearing them barefoot, but with socks they seem just fine. The hubby is begging me to make him a pair, so I already have something to make him for Christmas this year!

I added some height to the second pair I made so they would keep the ankle warm, too. I’ll try to remember to post them and a modified pattern after I’ve posted some more backlogged projects.
