French fries would be easy if you have the right color yarn. Maybe you could get a fast food place to give you one of their fry boxes--it would be free publicity. Sounds like a fun project. I haven't gotten requests from my kids yet for costumes, so nothing in mind at all for me.

Friday I won a costume for Cassie -- a Hot Dog. They have a costume contest at Petco the last Saturday (I think) in October and I am trying to figure out how to add to the hot dog. I am thinking of potato chips on Cassie and maybe figuring out a grill with cheeseburger and bun on it and carrying some French fries. Do you think I can make some of those things by crocheting them? I don't have material for sewing them except maybe I can find remnants somewhere for the fries (thinking crochet might not stand up too well). Of course, I think all but the cheese will have to be stuffed to get it thick enough. Everything other than the food would be made with clothes, felt, and aluminum foil.

Any ideas on that? Thanks.

The other day I saw a spare tire cover that was either crocheted or knitted. I didn't really get close to it, but I am pretty sure it was crochet. That was different.

I like the afghan colors.

I crocheted a dor mat and have a sweater in progress. Have been trying to get caught up with photos and cleaning more than crochet.

An advantage of grannies is that you can give a small one to a new baby and then add rows each year for each birthday. The gift that keeps on giving.

Wishing you all a beautiful and successful day!

Kira, that looks similar to a baby blanket I did for my cousin's baby a few years back (I think he's in 2nd grade now). I'm not the best at granny squares, but got that one done.

Your afghan looks beautiful.

I love working on grannies. I can work on them while watching TV or visiting with friends because I don't need to look at what I'm doing. It's also an easy way to just keep going until you reach the size you want. Most of the blankets I make for Bundles of Love are grannies. However, occasionally I just like to try something new.

Wishing you all a beautiful and successful day!

I'm working on a very basic granny square afghan.
