Another friend of mine saw the lovely cupcakes in progress and demanded (yes, demanded) that I make one for her too. i had to buy some different white wool as the stuff I'd used was cheap and horrid and a bit sticky - really hard to work with. And while I was in the local craft shop I saw some lovely bugle beads and thought they'd look like those little sugar strands on the top of the cake so grabbed a pack of pink ones.
And here is the finished result:
I've also got to the end of baby blanket version 3. It's not blocked yet but here it is:
Good job too as I've already cast on my next baby blanket for one due just 4 days after the recipient of blanket 3. So here comes blanket 4!
I've also knitted a birthday present for someone. It's in the post and I dont think they'll see this before it arrives but here it is: it's a tea cosy from book Tea cosies 2. (see the list of the right)
In other news you may have seen that I bought a bread maker a few weeks ago. The first loaf was a disaster (and we still havent managed to make any edible gluten free bread yet) but look at these:
and walnut and olive. Yummy!
looks like him-indoors has got himself a new hobby :)
oh, and while I'm here, can anyone explain why my Picasa thing says its nearly full? do i have to upload photos on there? cant i just upload from my laptop? what will happen when it fills up? :(
I hope you're all making progress on your projects.
Pop over to Tamis to see some more FOs.
