Feeling stabby?

So, there's no way to make the argument for these being terribly practical little beasts.  Because they're knit cupcakes, and practical isn't really what you're going for if you're making a knit cupcake.  But then again... I mean maybe you need a pin cushion?  I suppose you could maaaaaaaaybe make the case for a pin cushion being practical? Especially if it has space inside to store more pins?  Though again...practical is totally not a requirement for anything this damn cute, and I will fight you if you try to convince me otherwise! The pattern comes out Tuesday (and, as always, mailing [...]

Advance planning

So, the cupcakes are just about ready to come out (if all goes according to plan, they'll be out on April 16, because I'm pretty sure the day after tax day we could all use a cupcake).  But, on the off chance you're planning to cast some on the moment they come out, I want to send you on a scavenger hunt before the pattern drops.  You see, you'll need one, ah, shall we say 'non-traditional' bit of kit to make these.  You need a little plastic cup to go inside the cupcake bit and give it that perfect shape.

I'm coming to love my scraps bin.  I used to be fairly ruthless about throwing out little bits of yarn.  If a yarn leftover was under 100 yards or so I'd decide I was never really going to use it for anything and just chuck it.   But these days...these days I seem to find myself knitting more than my fair share of tiny stuff. The hearts, the stars, and the acorns all came straight out of the scraps bin (the acorns especially used the tiniest bits of yarn ever). And now the cupcakes are happening (and there are at least [...]

So I'm knitting cupcakes.  Which is fun and frivolous and festive and should be a carefree sort of thing, right?  And for the most part it totally is!  But one thing keeps happening, and I'm in a place where I want to talk about it for just a quick second. People keep saying over and over and over 'oh look, cupcakes without calories' or 'guilt free cupcakes' or 'finally some cupcakes I can feel good about' or something else that seems to strongly suggest that the other kind of cupcakes...the kind that you eat, the kind that contain food, the [...]

I got distracted

I should...I should be talking to you about the speckled hat and all its pom-pomy goodness.  And I will.  For it is coming out in just a second here. But...well...somehow I'm distracted.  I don't think you can blame me. Yes, there will be a pattern (really, I can't remember the last time I knit something and didn't' make a pattern, so it's pretty much always safe to assume there will be a pattern).  And the little gizmo down below lets you hear from me when it comes out if that's your jam!  Won't be long now at all...   [pextestim pex_attr_set="looking-for-this-pattern" pex_attr_autoplay="false"][/pextestim]
