Mango vlaai something... by Vampyratekitty
Mango vlaai something...
It was supposed to be a mango pie with creamfilling, but the filling didn't set. By now I figured out what went wrong, but back then, well, I didn't.  Oh well
Caramel pear pie by Vampyratekitty
Caramel pear pie
The idea was to make a pear pie like I make my applepies, but without the cinnamon. I'd pour over the caramel over the pear and then bake it, so the pear bits would be covered n a thick toffee like fudgy caramel...stuff. Didn't work out that way though. The pears were more ripe than I'd thought so they gave off a bit more juice than expected. Nevertheless; the caramel got infused in the juice and pear and it's awesome nommsomeness all around!  I'll try again to make the caramel-fudge-pie some time soon as I've got quite some pears left and a couple of them still hanging from my tree also. But for now I've got this nommyness =^.^=

Knitters Wreath by Vampyratekitty
Knitters Wreath
It's been hanging around for ages, but I always forgot to take a picture XD
An entry about circular vests, both crochet, knitting or sewing. Are they in or out, are they hot or not? Well, who cares!

Wether they're trending or old news; the internet does not forget. If you search google or pinterest or whatever medium you'd like to use, for crochet vest, knitting afghan, granny's, flowers or circles; you come across this marvel of creativity. Those pictures or tutorials and patterns may be a week old or three years old, but they are still abundantly represented in the creative corners of the internet.

And why not? They're pretty basic but can be made as difficult and intricate as you'd like, there's patterns for both beginners and experts, knitters, sewers and crocheting folk, the possible variations in colour conbinations are endless, and should you not find a pattern you like or fit; make your own! Make a circle, cut or leave out two holes just above the center fold for your arms at back width, and tadam! A vest is born. I don't care if they're old or not; they're amazing!

It won't be a suprise to you that I am in fact making one myself right now. Why I haven't up till now, I don't know. I've started with a simple granny-circle with straight up sleeves, but I'd love to try one with more flowery and lacy patterns, or one with snowflakes! Then again, I'd love to do a gazillion projects, and have about half that amount of ongoing projects lying around, waiting to be finished...

Anyway; Circles are awesome, don't ever hold back from making something just because it's not 'hip' or whatever, and create whatever you feel like!
