I dared, too. Yesterday I picked up this at the local Starbucks. Ummm.....first cup was really good. Second cup, not so good. Maybe it needs sugar instead of Equal. ;-)
My favorite thing to crochet. Well, until recently I only crocheted bereavement items for babies that are taken too soon. Just in the last few weeks I've started doing some dishcloths. I really like how quick they work up and trying new stitches. They'll be on the list of Christmas gifts.
