homemade brownies and crochet tawashi

Before showing my next FO, I would like to show you the brownies I made last week. I rediscovered this pan that I bought a few years ago, but haven't used.

My son again requested me to make some chewy brownies (I just made him some, the other week...). Its from the recipe written on the Nestle Cocoa label. My oven is small, so when I used a 13 x 9 inch pan, it almost got burned at the sides and still not done in the middle.
So for the first time I baked brownies in this pan, it came out just right - all of it! (Btw, I substituted some of the flour with ground oats - which I also sprinkled a little on top.)

And of course I served myself one with coffee. I think an occasional treat like this won't do harm ;)

And now, presenting my neat little FO:

Handy Tawashi

My second tawashi design! I hope to come up with a few more... I started with the Flower Tawashi, which inspired me to make this one.
I already have the two tawashis available for sale in my Ravelry pattern store, and in my Etsy shop ;)

    My son said he liked it without nuts and oats, since he just wanted it sweet and chocolatey :p
