Crochet macs

Crochet macarons

Crochet macarons
I made macarons in bed...a strawberry chocolate ganache and a chocolate cassis...ok they are just yarn...the recipe
for the shells, make 2
Ch 2
sc 6 in the 2nd stitch from the hook
2 sc in each sc (12)
Sc 12
Bind off
Chain 12, being careful not to twist, join and sc 12, sc 12 again, bind off.
The tricky bit is sewing the shell to the ganache, I flipped the edge up and sewed the chocolate to the inside of the shell and flipped the edge down.
Sadly this took way less time than baking a batch.
I plan to make then into purse danglies.

Wowee, is there anything you can't crochet? Seriously, you need to get your stuff up on etsy.

That's what I love about crochet, you can make just about anything!
I don't know why but I just imagine an etsy store being too much work,or taking the joy away from crafting. Because then it will be work..
