Gloves for Me, Not My Fingers

Materials:4.0mm Crochet Hook
5.00mm Crochet Hook
1 Hank Cloudborn Superwash Merino Sport Twist Yarn of each color used
Tapestry Needle
Scissors

Stitches to Know: CH = chain SC = single crochet HDC = half-double crochet sl st = slip stitch Pattern (written in US terms):Some notes before we start: If using double strands, use the 5mm hook, and use the 4mm only if using single strands.

Devilishly Good Brownies

Image
What You Need:1 cup butter (I use salted) 2 cups granulated sugar 2 teaspoons vanilla 4 eggs 3/4 cup Hershey's Special Dark cocoa powder 1 cup all-purpose flour 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt nuts (optional) A brownie pan An oven What You Do:Preheat the oven to 350°, and line brownie pan with parchment paper.
