One of the thing I like best about the first of the year is that the annual Girl Scout Cookie sale begins, and every year, I order at least 10 boxes from my friendly, neighborhood Girl Scout.
While there technically isn’t a Girl Scout cookie I don’t like, among all of them, I do have have favorites, one of which is the accurately named cookie known as Lemonades™. To me, they are a practically perfect cookie, and in the cookieghan project I am working on, I wanted to include a cookie that evoked the delight and joy of these delectable treats:
My first effort was serviceable:
but as I am now focusing more of my efforts on this project, I am looking at the individual pieces with a more critical eye, and while my first effort was passable, I really wanted something closer to perfect.
So after I had made the top of the cookie (using Red Heart Super Saver aran), I got out a skein of Red Heart Super Saver lemon and spent the next two hours experimenting with variations on my original attempt. The first three or four variations were not quite what I wanted, but shortly after 1:00 pm (EDT) I finally got a crochet homage to Lemonades™ that I felt did the cookie justice:
It can be difficult to know when it is time to stop fiddling with something and move forward, but now that I have worked out the details of the revised homage to Lemonades™ crochet cookie, I am glad I took the time to do it.
