A Start and a Failure

The first of 16 Wheel Lattice Squares.
Not sure what other colors I'm using yet or how I'm going to stitch it together.
I'm gonna go with the flow and see what happens.
Pattern:  HERE
My last blanket made with it:  HERE and pictured below.

From March 2010.

 Peanut Butter Granola

This is a picture of it before I baked it.
Looks pretty good, huh?
WRONG! I burned it trying to get it to get crunchy.
Should have left out the raisins and coconut until AFTER it was baked.
I knew it too. So into the garbage it went all burnt and bitter.
Bummer.

  1. Just want to tell you that you create such lovely items. I can crochet and knit, but knitting is more friendly, lol.
    Crochet items are sometimes misshapen. Yours are beautiful.
    Want to try some of the patterns you link to.

    Aw about the granola. Burnt the batch that was the first try for us.
    It was this recipe on my blog
    http://mamatcan.com/homemade-crunchy-nutty-granola-bars
    It was so hard and brittle.

    Then did another batch, cooked the oats less, did not add chocolate chips to mix, baked bars less, then added the chocolate chips on top.
    It was semi chewy and semi crunchy. Much better. And this batch used coconut oil instead of vegetable.
    Want to try peanut butter granola next.

  2. Oh what a pity Pammy Sue it looked so yummy too, I have just seen your previous foodie post it made my mouth water. I like these squares and your previous blanket is lovely, looking forward to seeing what you decide. :)

  5. That is a gorgeous square.. can't wait to see how it grows. Sad to lose a whole batch of homemade granola. I used to make it and need to try it again!

    I'm all set to start your pot holder!!

  6. Love the new pattern you are working. And what a big fat bummer about the granola! I hate to ruin something. Groceries are so darned expensive. I make a big batch of granola about once a month. I use different types of nuts and things. I alway put coconut in, and I cook it the whole time. I use the coconut chips from Sprouts. I will have to blog my recipe for you to try.

  8. Love your blanket and the new finished square. I think that pattern will be printed off when I get home. The granola looks delicious...too bad it burned. Oh well, you can always try again. Yum!
    Blessings,

  9. What a shame about your peanut butter granola :( it would have been so nice. That is such a pretty square - did you say it was going to be another blanket? The second one in your post looks very classy - you have excellent taste in patterns. PS guess what? I get to babysit a 12 week old l/h chihuahua next Thursday.
