Chocolate Doily, Ice Urinal, Monkeys

Pattern:  Tea Break from the LA book, Tea Time Doilies by Ocie Jordan
Yarn:  Nazli Gelin in Chocolate Brown
Hook:  1.75 mm
Size:  23 inches

Ken built a urinal for the guys at the poker game out of the snow!

I also made some of these sock monkey cup cozies.
They were fun.
Free pattern is HERE.

We've had some sunshine this past week and a lot of snow melt. There is still about two feet of snow out there, but most of it is clear from the roadways. We went into Canada yesterday and did some shopping. I think we're supposed to get more snow within the next week, but we'll see.

I'm starting another doily when I get this posted. We're having Veggie Burgers for dinner so that'll be easy. Not much news here.  Enjoy your weekend!

Peace, Sistahs.


  1. Your yarn finished projects are great. Beautiful brown color. And I love the doggies. Nose in your shirt - cute. I miss my Cavalier furbaby, Lily so terribly. It is almost a year since she had to go. Stay warm.- Mary

  2. Your crocheting is so beautiful. I love that chocolate doily. And I think I've already told you that the cup cozies are very, very cute. Silly Ken! Isn't it fun the things you can do in the snow? Have a wonderful weekend.
    Blessings, Betsy

  3. Congrats on finishing the very pretty doily. Love the snow urinal.


  4. LOL! Seems Ken has a creative streak, too! Pammy Sue, your doilies are so beautiful--love the chocolate one and the red! Those sock monkeys are just too cute. Glad you two are amusing yourselves with fun creations!! ;) Have a wonderful weekend! blessings ~ tanna

  5. What a beautiful doily!! Great. Sweet dog pics and the urinal is funny :o). Happy weekend, I hope you will soon get spring instead of new snow! Nata xxx

  6. Your doily is beautiful as always.. boy that's a big one! 23".... I like them that size as they make a great table centerpiece or on a coffee table. I have them all over my house, but I use a 3 or 4 ply yarn, never that tiny stuff as hard for me to work with. You do such a beautiful job! After I blocked my baby blanket, I washed it and it came out wonderful.. still blocked and nice and soft so getting it ready to send to new mom and her little girl. That ice urinal is a kick! so funny! I had to snark out loud! LOL..... and the monkey cup cozies.. darling. I still want to make some sugar skulls. I'm glad our snow is all but gone... thank goodness.. and hope we get NO MORE! I went to Wal Mart yesterday and got some of that Tamari.. thank you for suggested it.. now I can have some stir fry! Also found a gluten free marinade.. yum. Enjoy the weekend! Marilyn

  10. Your chocolate doily is so pretty and it looks outstanding on your table.
    Ken had a stroke of genius making that snow urinal, LOL ~ My DH loved it!
    The little monkeys are adorable, especially those two cuties snoozing in the chair(s).
