Look into my sweet, innocent face cupcake.. look deeply...

The cupcake cannot resist the allure of Miss Carolyn... it wants to be her friend, keeping paper and notes in place all day long, and providing much glee!

Isn't it cute? I've wanted to make one of these for so long and now it's mine!!! I must make more soon..


Pattern: Cupcake!

Yarn: Base - Easy Knit mercerized wool in Stone, Icing - Bernat Cot'n Soft in Parade Print and white hand spun mohair (by my Mum!)
Needles: 4mm dpn
Notions: 1.5ish yards of ribbon, a large button, 10 glass pebbles, a plastic lid with the base removed, stuffing!
Started / Finish: April 23rd 2007 / April 24th 2007

Modifications: I ended up working with 42 stitches, instead of 36. To achieve this, I added one more round of increases, but left out the middle increase on each needle. Also, when starting with the icing, I increased to 48 to make it puff out more. To work with these additional 12 stitches, I decided to decrease by 8, instead of 6, every other round, which works out to the same number of decrease rows called for in the pattern.

Today was so pretty! I managed to get out for a 30 minute walk, and burnt 150-ish calories playing DDR. It's hard staying on track, but I have goals, and I will reach them. I'll look super cute for school too. Plus, I really want to lose 5lbs for going apartment hunting in Ottawa. Miss Ifi, this really means we'll be out walking ALL the time when you visit! Also, you and I must play Guitar Hero. It needs us to rock out!

Back to knitting, Ms Marigold is coming along nicely! I'm almost ready to join her together. My mystery project is pretty much ready to go to, I just need to find the PERFECT yarn. Something very silky, and dark in colour.
