Yup. Milk, Dark, Raspberry, White, all of it. Yum.

I spent all day going a little crazy with my browns and cream yarns, because they reminded me of chocolate ((didn't help that I watched Food Network Challenge: Chocolate Wonders earlier today...)). And it took all day because I've never done anything like this. I think I really like free form type crochet now. Anyways, crazy awesome necklace.



And here it is on me. Sorry, I cut off the very longest curly, but I didn't feel it was necessary for my cleavage to make an appearance.



I have a couple more pics of close ups on areas of the necklace, as well as one or two while it was in the making. I'm trying to get my computer to obey and let me upload them, so I'll update when Angelique (laptop) feels more inclined to acquiese.

... I've always wanted to say that. Wink

Man that looks yummy. I could tell it was chocolate/candy inspired without even seeing the title. I have a recent obsession with crochet necklaces and yours is extra chunky, I love it!

I love you for posting your love! I'm thinking about doing a whole bunch of necklaces inspired by candies. So keep your eyes peeled. Of course, not literally. Cuz that would hurt.

Angelique is in a happy mood, so she says hello! I think it's some kind of computer version of PMS. She's been fine sine I got her about a month ago, and she just got really slow and wouldn't pick up internet signals. But she's getting better now, heehee.

I'm thinking specifically candy canes next, heeeeee!

Very nice necklace!  It reminded me of chocolate before I read your post, and now knowing it was inspired by chocolate makes me love it even more! Great job  Smiley
