Purple Unicorn

I wish this was my unicorn and I had made it, but it belongs to Cotton Candee on Crochetville.  I saw it a few weeks ago and immediately contacted her to see where I could get the pattern.  Of course, she said she just made it up and there was no pattern!  I think it is so cute, and I love the purples.  I have seen some similar horses, but none of them have the mouth and face shape done as well as this one.

Go check out that link.  She also made a matching round ripple blanket.  So CUTE!

The cake turned out great.
White Cake Mix + Homemade Chocolate Frosting =


More info on the Crochet-Along Sampler:

Crochet-Along Leader is HERE.  (Scroll down to find beginning)
My Yarn:  Various Blues/Greens, ILTY from Hobby Lobby and Vanna's
My Hook:  Size H
My Starting Chain:  150 = width of 46 inches

She's going slowly so you still have plenty of time to join in!  I won't be following her stitches exactly, but she says that's fine.  Do whatever you want.  I think I'm doing a few more rows of DC & HDC and then some Bobble stitches next.  I'm flying by the seat of my pants!


The Captain is home today.  We took a tour of the Senior Center on his last days off.  He informs me we are going to go join today.  I'm SO SURE!  I am not old enough to join a Senior Anything, am I?  I'm afraid so.  The qualifying age is 50.  I never thought I'd make it this far.  They do have a nice workout room with fancy equipment, and they take day trips all the time.  They were gone to Winstar Casino when we were there for our tour.  WHAT?!  SOLD!

I'm going for my final follow-up with the doc since the back surgery tomorrow.  I'm still having pain requiring prescription pain meds, but this may be as good as it gets.  I'll just have to see what he says.  I'm usually pretty good until later in the day.  I'll wait for the go-ahead from him before I jump on any exercise equipment.

Time for another cup of coffee.  See ya.


  1. Hi Sr. Pammy! ;-)

    I love your colors! Sr. Centers seem a lot more active now! The one here seems to go all over the place!


  2. Your cake looks yummy.. that is a unique way of cutting it! I absolutely LOVE the colors in that CAL blanket.. greens, blues and creams.. so restful and sea-like. I bet you'll shake up that Senior Center! LOL! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  3. Sorry to hear you are still having some pain. I had upper back surgery in 2004. It helped some, but the pain never went away - even with meds. Acupuncture really helped me. I only went because a friend nagged me into it - I thought is was just a bunch of mumbo jumbo. But I tell you what - it did the trick for me! Good Luck!

  4. The unicorn is gorgeous! I'm sure you could work out a pattern for one.

    I too am fascinated by the way you've cut your cake. What a great idea - saves getting too much of the outside edge and not enough of the inside! :o)

  5. Mmmm that cake looks so good. I'm fascinated in how you cut it - I usually cut in wedges - not that I have cake very much :( The colors in your sampler piece are gorgeous. What will the completed article be ?
    PS .. I just scrolled back and read the other comments - seems I'm not the only one fascinated by your cake cutting.

  6. I'm trying really hard to get on board with a healthier way of life (Kate is inspiring me) - and that cake is making my mouth water! Damn you! Stop tempting me! Your the colors...what a fun thing to do! And that unicorn! How adorable is that?! People are so darned creative!

  7. Pammy SUe, love all your crochet. Thanks for the link, I think it will help solve my crochet problems, you were so thoughtful.

  8. Crochet is lovely! Sorry to hear you are still having pain. This is my first day of no soreness in my hip - what a relief. Just one more session of PT this week and then we'll see how I do with home exercises. Your cake looks delicious - do you always cut it like that? My favorite is yellow cake with chocolate frosting. I just applied for social security benefits. Talk about how I could be that age already like you with the Senior Center. LOL !

  9. the unicorn.

    What happened to the cake? lol. Do you always cut a square out of a round? :o) Just thought I'd bust your chops. lol
