I’ve been knitting like crazy over the past few days. I’ve started and finished two projects and worked a bit on my socks. The first thing I finished was a sweater from this pattern, as a test for the designer. The pattern is great and the cardigan turned out so cute, I’ll definitely be making it again! (On Ravelry here).
I also knit up a hat from this pattern for my little friend E. It turned out well, but there are a few modifications I’d probably make to the decreases next time to make it fit better. I made the child size and I was a bit worried about is being too small, but it is actually pretty long and has a lot of stretch. I love the way the flower is done… so clever! (On Ravelry here).
Last weekend, for Mother’s Day, I baked up some cupcakes for us to have with dinner with my mom. They turned out really well for yellow cake. I usually find yellow cake too dry, but these were actually pretty moist. Th cupcake recipe is here and the icing is from here.
I should have a pattern release coming your way in the next week or so and I’m working on a few new things as well… the knitting marathon continues!
Have a great end to your week!
