Crack Ho Doily and a Bread Recipe

I say "Crack Ho" doily not because it's so fantastic I just can't quit working on it. I'm calling it that because the person that wrote it must have been one. Jeez! It's so convoluted and annoying with a million stitches per round and is nearly impossible to memorize at this point, and it will only get worse as the rounds get bigger. I'm getting so fed up with it. It's a gonner! I would be a mad woman by the time I finished it. I hate it when that happens. Crochet is supposed to be enjoyable, dammit!

Big breath and then frog, frog, frog. I'll use the thread for another one.

Aren't these pretty? I made them on Monday using a new recipe. It's the simplest and easiest recipe for homemade rolls I've made yet. I was a little suspicious when I saw that the recipe had no milk and no eggs, but I gave it a try anyway. WOW...they are really good! They turned out so light and fluffy.

I got the recipe from Faith HERE. (I added a 1/4 cup of sugar in addition to the 2 Tbsp called for, and only 1 tsp of salt.  We like our rolls slightly sweet.)

Thanks, Faith!


  1. LOL! I'm cracking up at your deciding to save that designer your wrath. LOL! I may need to remember that lesson. ;)

    Those rolls look heavenly. Thanks for sharing!! blessings ~ tanna

  2. Rolls look amazing! Your so funny! Crack ho! I loved your crack ho crackers..

  3. I actually choked when I read the title of this post in my Blogger dashboard. You're hilarious! Crack ho's what all the crack hos are crocheting this season! LOLOLOL.

  4. oh the joys of crack ho's writing doily patterns LOL. As if doilies were not complicated enough. ;)

  5. I'm glad you like the recipe, they look delish. I made some myself today, doesn't the house smell lovely when you bake bread? This is a pretty little doily so far..I hate frogging, and patterns which are are right it should be simple, and therapeutic, not make you go nuts. frog on sister and start another lovely....

  6. I hope you know that you always make me smile when you write stuff like "crack ho doily". :)

    I don't like crazy butt complicated doilies either, crochet is suppose to be relaxing and fun, not something that makes you want to poke your eyes out!

    Hope you find a new doily soon because I love seeing all the pretty doilies that you make.

    Blessings always

  7. I think I have drool running down my chin just looking at those rolls. Yum.
    Don't frog the doily. Just finish the round and use it in a small space. It's beautiful and way too much work to rip out. Just my opinion.

  8. I feel your frustration. Some patterns could benefit from a little organized simplicity. At least your rolls turned out nice. I need to bookmark the recipe. My husband loves dinner rolls and I usually make the frozen kind. Maybe I could surprise him with these homemade ones.

  9. You crack me up!!! Those rolls look fabulous!!!

  10. Shame about the doily, was looking so pretty, but I def agree if its painful then whats the point!!!!

  11. Oh my goodness Pammy Sue you make me laugh, Glad you are frogging before you go insane. If I was you I would frog a bit, eat a yummy roll, and repeat.

  12. Ha ha ha! Love the name of your doily. So it'll be a bit smaller than the pattern. No biggie. It's cute!

    Those rolls look so yummy. I have no patience for cooking. I've finally admitted that about myself.

  13. Silly, don't frog that doily. Just stop at the last round you put on it, use it for a small doily which you can use over a jar lid or in a space that would only fit a tiny doily. I think it looks dainty, and those rolls, well, I think those look yummy, yummy, yummy!

    "Crack Ho Doily"!!! As always, you make me laugh out loud... something I am in great need of right now!
