If you’re one of the lucky winners, please e-mail me at likepurlsoffastring@gmail.com before the end of the day on Friday to claim your prize! You’ll need to give me your Ravelry username so that I can “gift” you the pattern. If you don’t have a Ravelry account, e-mail me and we’ll figure something out! Congratulations… I can’t wait to see your finished hats!

If you didn’t win, don’t worry! You can still get your copy of the pattern from the Ravelry store here. (You don’t need a Ravelry account).

I just got back from my trip on Sunday. I spent 4 days in St-Louis, Missouri with my FIRST robotics team and we had so much fun!

On the knitting front, I haven’t made any progress on my socks, but after cleaning out my stash, I decided I definitely needed a stash buster project, to turn things like this…

Into things like this.

I’m making log cabin squares based on this dishcloth pattern, and eventually I’ll have enough to put together into a blanket. (On Ravelry here). I’m also working on a few new designs. One is another hat and one is something a bit different… but I’ll leave you in suspense for now!

I also tried out a carrot cupcake recipe before I left. They were delicious! I can’t seem to find the recipe that I used but I’ll share it if I do find it.

I’ve been doing a lot of baking on my own lately, but the weekend before we left, I baked these cinnamon rolls with some friends… baking is fun, but baking with your best friends is so much better!

I hope everyone had a great week! I’ll be yarn-alonging with Ginny at Small Things tomorrow.

  1. Mmm…those cinnamon rolls look delicious!!! Wondering now if I have all the ingredients on hand to make some up mysef. Hmm… 🙂

  2. That is a great photo of mixing by hand–what a fabulous smile!

  3. Pretty pictures – is the water in that fountain really blue? And darn it, now I want a cinnamon roll…

    • Thanks! And yeah, it was dyed blue. I think maybe it was special for a sports event or something? It certainly isn’t always blue!

      • Ok, I was curious so I googled it. They apparently dyed it for the St Louis Blues hockey team, since they’re in the playoffs for the Stanley Cup. Huh. Well, they’re definitely creative
