Crochet Little Mermaid Outfit

A friend of mine is having a little girl in November and I decided to try to make my first full crochet outfit.
It turned out wonderful. I cannot wait to see her baby girl in this when she is born.
That is my chalk painted coffee table in case you thought it was dirty. Life of a mom.

Crochet Ear Warmers

I learned to crochet a few months ago and have learned so much. I wanted to share a few projects.
My most popular paid for item so far has been the ear warmers.
Here are some examples most colors are for local schools and the one with the large rose is for my daughter.
They are made with a double stitch and chain three at each end which gives it the little decorative gap.

Oven Baked Corn On The Cob

I am intimidated by the grill. I have never used one and knowing me I would burn anything I tried to cook on the grill. I usually boil corn but looking through pins on Pinterest I noticed a few friends pinning stuff about baking corn. I Googled it and searched through several and gave it a try.
All you have to do is:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
Leave corn in husk place on baking sheet or right on the rack
Bake for 30-35 minutes
I keep my corn in the refrigerator so I did 35 minutes. Now after the trial tonight I would recommend doing the larger ears of corn a little longer. They were done at 35 minutes but not quite as soft as the smaller ones.
Overall they were great. I just added a little butter, salt, and pepper. I think I will be cooking them like this for now on.
