Having the flu has some benefits. Like enough free time to finish crocheting the Baby Radish Lariat Scarf out of Twinkie Chan's Crochet Goodies for Fashion Foodies book.

Besides crocheting every pattern out of her book, I am attempting to use up the yarn in my stash to do so. I didn't have the exact yarn she used for the project on hand, but I still think it turned out pretty cute.

I used a small part from a skein of Sensations Belezza Collection Stellina in fuschia for the main portion of the radish and some Red Heart white and green for the rest of the scarf.

This is a really great scrap yarn buster pattern. Most of the yarn used was for the stems and leaves portion, and that barely put a dent in the skein of Red Heart green yarn I used.

This is also a great assignment for learning double crochet, half treble, and treble crochet stitches.

Oh! And it was agreed amongst my friends that safety eyes make everything cuter. Sure, a radish scarf is adorable. But a radish scarf with two little beady eyes looking out at you? Frakkin' adorable!

One of my winter presents this year was a copy of "Twinkie Chan's Crochet Goodies for Fashion Foodies". It contains 20 crochet patterns of brilliant food related accessories.

2010 was a great year. But at the end, I noticed I didn't create as much as I could have. I don't want to make the same mistake in 2011.

So, I have a New Year's resolution to crochet every item out of "Twinkie Chan's Crochet Goodies for Fashion Foodies".

I plan to complete two a month. This will leave the last two months of the year open for last minute holiday crafting.

Bonus, I plan on using the items I make as winter presents this year. By the time November rolls around, I should in theory have my winter gift list complete and just needing to be wrapped.

Here is my itinerary for making items out of this book. I'll post pictures after an item is completed.

I will be printing out wedding invitations.

After that, I will work out.

Followed by a noon break to cash in my manicure/pedicure Hannukah present from my future SIL, Beth.

Followed by printing out more wedding invitations and working on meeting that 1,000 origami paper crane goal.

Followed by a gathering at Skip's place during the night hours.

Oh yeah, and I also need to cook up the black eye peas, cornbread and collard greens for lunch tomorrow.
