they were supposed to turn out like these cupcakes. they did not.
probably because after i demolished all but four sugar cones, and then having those four sugar cones topple over in the oven, i was done. so they turned out like this:
luckily, the headbands turned out.
and the rock painting.
happy birthday, my brave.

remind me that when i get the idea to let my children help me paint something in our home i need to:
1. not think i can paint at the same time
2. not answer the phone and talk to my sister
i decided to paint a wall last week while the childs were home for fall break. the inspiration for the workroom is this photo. i am loving yellow.

worsted weight yarn
beg = beginning
sl st = slip stitch
here's how i crochet them (and i will warn you this could get messy):
Ch 4, join with a sl st in first ch to form a ring.
Round 2: Ch 4 (counts as last dc and ch 1 sp for this round), [in next ch 2 sp work (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc, ch 1)] 3 times for three corners. In last ch 2 sp work (3 dc, ch 2, 2 dc). Join with sl st in the third ch of the beg ch 4.
