Nacho Ordinary Blanket

Remember the taco fleece impulse buy I posted about?

Happy taco is happy.
The blanket is now finished, and so I wanted to share the final product! 

I used a skip stitch blade to cut holes along the edge of the fleece, and then used some sparkly green yarn from my stash and a 7mm hook to crochet a border.
(The yarn was Caron Simply Soft Party, I think.)

After the beginning round, I did one round of HDC (half double crochet). Then I did a simple ruffle edging (slip stitch, chain three, slip stitch around). 

I think the edging looks a bit like lettuce, which adds the perfect touch to the blanket.
(and now I'm hungry. Oops?)

And here's a photo of the finished blanket! 
Isn't it the cutest thing ever?

I'm not certain of the exact dimensions of the finished blanket. The fleece was roughly a yard and a half lengthwise, but I'm not sure of any other measurements, especially after adding the border. 

 But! I am extremely happy with how it came out, and I've been enjoying it ever since its completion. 

I am a burrito of happiness.
So....anyone else in the mood for some tacos now?? XD

Have a great weekend!

Bofur Inspired Hat Pattern

 (Check out this handy dandy Pinterest ready graphic I made!) In The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, one of the dwarves (Bofur) wore this really, really awesome hat.  I fell in love with it, and decided to see if I could crochet my own version of it.  Well, first I scoured the internet, hoping for a pattern, and when I didn't find one THEN I decided to make my own.  And since I know there are others out there who would love to have this pattern, I'm posting it here! PLEASE NOTE: You may make items and sell them using this pattern, but PLEASE link back to the pattern and credit me as the source.

As Seen on Pinterest - The Retirement Survival Kit

One of my co-workers recently retired. I'm happy for her, because she really deserves it and everything...but I hate that she's leaving me!  I tried to bribe her into staying. I even threatened to lock her in the office and refuse to let her go.  Oddly, she didn't like that suggestion.  Since she was set on this notion of retirement, I immediately began scouring Pinterest for some sort of cute retirement gift for her. I knew I'd find something there, and I was not disappointed! Fairly soon after beginning my search, I came across the 'Retirement Survival Kit'.  (Photo from Pinterest - original pin link ) The pin was a link to an eBay auction, but of course my first thought on seeing it was "I can do that!". So I did.   I really should have taken a better photo of it. But this is all I managed to get. So, uh, ta da! I changed a few of the items around (the original link was from the UK, so some of the items weren't available)

Sakura Season Bokksu

Do you like watching unboxing videos?  I do! I've also decided to try my hand at making a few. I uploaded my latest one to YouTube today, which you can watch below. I did an unboxing of the Sakura Season Bokksu, which is full of absolutely gorgeous (and delicious!) snacks from Japan.  Which snack would you want to try first? <iframe width="560" height="315" src="" title="YouTube video player" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe> Feel free to subscribe to my YouTube while you're there. I'm trying to post some fun stuff occasionally, and would love for you to join me!
