Birthday Cupcakes and Green Gable Started
My first one skein project was a cupcake for my friend Cheryl. Her birthday is Sunday, but I am giving her the Birthday Cupcake today so I will post a picture of it. I have requested joining the One Skein KAL but have not seen any messages from them yet. I plan on posting this there too. The chocolate cake is cotton classic on sz 2 needles and the frosting is regal or royal alpaca. I decorated the cupcake with some pretty purple and lavender beads. The project was fun and I will be making more of these in the future.
I also jumped on the Green Gable bandwagon last night ordering the pattern and pulling out some Cotton Fleece in Alpine Lilac to make the top. I hope I am reading the pattern correctly and it will come out ok. The pattern was described on one post in the Green Gable KAL as more of a guide and I can see what the poster meant. The directions are a bit scarce. Will have to see if it makes sense as I knit along.
