It’s that time again friends, the last Tuesday of the month. This month’s last Tuesday is particularly sad for me because that means that Halloween month is almost over. I shall weep later, because first I have to share with you the newest C2C Square – the Candy Corn Afghan Square!
Long time fans will know that I just do not like candy corn. It’s one of my least favorite snack and for a seasonal treat, I’m more willing to be tricked. But when it comes to Halloween looks, it’s tough to beat. This candy has in looks what it lacks in flavor (IMO, my husband loves candy corn so I’m more-a-less indifferent to it these days)… those iconic colors are immediately recognizable to those of us who grew up in the US and when it hits the shelves you know that Halloween is right around the corner.
So of course I needed to make this month’s C2C Delicious Desserts square the Candy Corn Afghan Square. It’s just too powerful to be denied. And I know, it’s not really “dessert” but it’s sweet, it’s yummy, and people really dig it. So I couldn’t pick any other design for this month (especially because I decided November was going to get pumpkin pie as soon as I decided on this year’s theme). Honestly, I would love a whole blanket of these cuties. Maybe I’ll make one someday, to be the best auntie to my brother’s kids. 😀
Anyway, I hope you like this month’s new pattern. Let me know in the comments if you’re a candy corn kind of person or not. No shame or judgement for having never tried it either 😀
I hope you like this year’s theme and join in using the hashtag #DeliciousDessertsC2CCAL and #DivineDebris so I can share your makes!
I hope you all are healthy and happy and have a fabulous Halloween. Please be kind to one and other, wear your masks, wash your hands, and be safe friends!
Please note: I was provided the yarn for this pattern by Lion Brand Yarn for the purposes of making the C2C Candy Corn Afghan Square, without compensation. I wasn’t provided the yarn with the expectations of positive or negative reviews but I did enjoy using this yarn, I’ve used it many times and it’s always a great worsted acrylic yarn.
