Finished Object: Button Key Ring

I think this was one if the first patterns ever saved to my Ravelry library when I first joined back in 2008.

This is the first one I've made. It kind of reminds me of the Christmas ornaments that old ladies crocheted years ago... But at the same time I really like it.

So much do I started another one last night for D.

I had a plethora of left over buttons from Bump's cardigan so it just seems appropriate that he should be on M's key ring. He really is a handsome pony dog!

Pattern is by Frankie Brown from Frankie's Knitted Stuff

It's free on Ravelry and a great way to;
1. Finish a project in one night (instant gratification followed by adoration for yourself and how clever you are)

2. Use up those scraps that are balled up rolling all around you knit stash.

3. Finally a use for those random extra buttons that you love but don't have enough of to accomplish a cardigan!

On a completely different note but also a FO...
I made the best BEST sandwich last night for dinner. I thought, I should take a picture of it and share it with you all, well by the time that thought occurred that sandwich was down to crusts.

The dinner plan was for BLT's and salad last night. Then I saw the latest post on Smitten Kitchen about smashed egg on toast. I love eggs and love any excuse to incorporate them into what I'm eating so my BLT got a super lift.
Here's what I did:

Cook 3 strips of turkey bacon and set aside.

Soft boil an egg or two in boiling water for five minutes. Remove and set aside.

Next: toast some really great bread and let it cool. (I let it cool so when I add the mayo it doesn't get all funky)

Now, build your sandwich!
Mayo (to taste)
Dijon (thin layer)
Avocado 1/4 smash it up a bit

Now run some water and peel that egg(s) and set atop the arugula. With a fork gently squish the egg. The inside will be just runny enough for a delicious sauce all over the sandwich.

Cover with second slice of bread cut in half and gobble that bad boy down!

Again sorry for lack of tempting pictures but a half eaten sandwich is not as photogenic as a fresh made one with a nice tossed salad alongside it...
