All-Star Granny CAL

Posted by sallenlouise on October 9, 2007

Hi guys!
Well, I have  started a local Stitch Wits group on Ravelry. I also decided to make a CAL group, Stitch Wit Cals. If any of you are over there, come on in! If you didn’t know, Stitch Wits is the local group that I started for fellow crochet/knit/yarn enthusiasts! If you are in or around the Burleson, TX area, RSVP here. We meet every Tuesday for the time being. As well as one Saturday a month.


Here is the CAL that will begin in November.

Pattern: All-Star Granny
Finished Size: 54″X68″ Each Sq = 3 1/2″
Book: Granny Delight Afghans  project #3, page 13
Publisher: Leisure Arts, Little Books, 2000

~I bought my copy from Hobby Lobby for $2.79


  • Hook: H
  • Worsted Weight Yarn
  • Color A: (Blue)26 ounces (740 grams, 1,785 yards)
  • Color B: (Natural)17 ounces (480 grams, 1,165 yards)
  • Color C: (Lt Blue)15 ounces (430 grams, 1,030 yards)
  • Yarn Needle


  • SQUARE A: Make 48
  • SQUARE B: Make 96
  • SQUARE C: Make 48

If interested in the cal, let me know! If you are not a Ravelry member, that’s OK. You can participate here, just POST a COMMENT. I will be adding a page just for the CAL. So tell you crochet friends that you think might be interested! It will be fun!

I’m not sure how long this would take generally, but there are a lot of squares. (192 actually!) My Goal will be to make 5 squares a week, so 20 squares a month. This will have me finished by November 2008. It will take a total of 13 months. WOWSER! LOL!

Now, let’s see how that all works out! Come on, it will be a lot of fun!

Well, hubby ended up not heading home yesterday….today for sure, lol! He may just have to turn around and leave tomorrow, so, we probably wont get to see him for very long at all.

I have a major headache, it’s turning migraine, I just know it. 😦 I’m only here because I had to e-mail a customer.I hope this will go away before getting any worse.

Selah is annotating Great Expectations, I will be helping her later with definitions. Rachelle found out she was double jointed yesterday. She scared herself, and thought she had broken her thumb. Well, now she just keeps playing with it and freaking mom out. I do not like it one bit, lol! OK, I’m outta here for now.

Crocheted some squares. Ran errands. Yesterday I went and had my hair cut, now I have to play with it to get the hang of it.

K.C. will be home late tonight! They decided to come home before going to the next job. I’m so glad, and I finally will get to look at that finger. He says that it doesn’t hurt as much now, but doesn’t look any better. We might have him home for all day tomorrow, WOO HOO! Well, that’s about it for now, I am going to crochet some!

Friday Night Dessert! (Pay it Forward update)

Posted by sallenlouise on September 16, 2007

Well, the other night, when pizza went out the door, the kids had wanted something yummy for dessert. I obliged. Even though I am trying to loose some extra poundage…how can you resist them when they look at you with those pleading eyes, lol!

This is what I made, and from prep to mouths, it took me 20 minutes! They were happy!

I by mixing the *altered cake mix. Adding it to my Tupperware Heat N Serve container, with lid on, popping it into the microwave for about 10 minutes. While that cooks, I put most of the milk on the boil, I mix the custard powder, sugar(in our case Splenda) and left over milk together. When the milk is almost at a boil, I add the custard mix….The key is to keep mixing. The end result was wonderful, if I do say so myself!

The cake batter ready! Milk on the boil!

Cake batter ready for the microwave Milk on the boil

Custard just about done! Strawberry cake ready!

Custard added Strawberyy Cake ready~


The normal way we have custard! The Posh Way! 🙂

Reg Custard Voila

The kids had theirs with the cake on the side, I had mine the posh way! It was yummy! I was very pleased with the outcome.

~The following can be noted as a SALES PITCH, but really, it’s just enthusiasm turned into one!!!lol! I have added the link the the product page if you want to check it out for yourself.~

WOW!!! I love the Heat N’ Serve container!! I will be buying more. The one I have is getting used for everything! I can’t believe it has taken me this long to bring Tupperware into my house. I grew up with this in England, and my aunt still has some from when I was a baby…..I’m now 30 years old. So, yes, I will agree that some products are a little steep $$ wise, but in the long run, you definitely get your moneys worth. Another plus….lifetime guarantee!

Incentive: If you order any Heat N’ Serve container by September 21st, I will add the Self Icing Cake recipe,as well as a main course recipe via e-mail. E-mail me or leave a message here. I will also have other specials here!


Moving right along, I have started a local meet up group for crocheters, knitters and yarn lovers!! YAY! Our first meet will be on Tuesday, the 18th. I think that this will be a blast!

SWAP News:

I will be updating swap photos tomorrow. Ohhh, We have a luck Slytherin winner for our mini contest!!! I will reveal the lucky gal tomorrow She will win a $10 gift certificate to The Loopy Ewe! I also have some other Slytherin House Contests in the works!!! (if you didn’t already know, I am a participant in the HSK swap! My Slytherin related stuff might not have given it away, lol!)

Alright, that’s about it for now! I hope everyone is enjoying the weekend!

Woops, one more thing that I forgot to mention, the PAY IT FORWARD Swap. I’m still looking for 2 more that want to participate. If interested, please post a comment on that post. It will be fun, I promise! Lyn, my first participater, I have something already in the works for you!!! I’m sure you will love it!

MY Fix!

Posted by sallenlouise on April 11, 2007

I went to the Loopy Ewe! In two orders I bought, 4 skeins of Euro Online,
I also bought a hank of Apple Laine in color purple rain. I sooo wanted to get 2, but there was only one left.
This is an awesome shop! Sheri(blog) really added a personnel touch by writing a small note with both of my orders! (It was really nice to see that!)
She also popped a few little extras in my order! (ummmm, and who wouldn’t like that?)
The sucky part….(OK, not really!) She added some sample yarn cards..enough to feel it, and see the vibrant colors. Well, why is that sucky you ask…WELL NOW I WANT THOSE YARNS TOO!!! lol!
I have another order in process. I bought size 1 DPNs so that I can make the little Loopys Red Sock Kit! It is just the cutest!
