Cupcake Upcake Update

Another cupcake - but I did my own thing with the icing this time.

Size seems to be the problem - I can get a better 'icing' and it goes up in a nice spiral, but ends up far too small for the 'cake'. So for this, I just made a circle, going into the back loops of previous stitches and sewed on some 'sprinkles' afterwards.

The two I've done so far went off in the post to Molly today - I hope she likes them! I'm going to keep trying to make better ones though!

Noro Needlecases

I took these to my knitting group yesterday and sold two! This one:

...and this one:

Hopefully the rest will make it into the Chez Penny shop!

I'm sure your grand-daughter will love those cuypcakes. I do! And those needlecases are lovely - glad you managed to sell a couple. You might be able to sell some at the Confolens group too?!

That cupcake looks like a cupcake in a hat.

How about a crocheted candle on top to make it into a birthday cupcake? Might go well at craft fairs too...

Look what you have been up to. Love each and everyone of these treats and so will your Grand Daughter.... They are just precious.
