Christmas

Because my toddler niece can't surf the interweb superwell yet...

Yeah.

My sis-in-law requested crochet cupcakes for the little one. Apparently my niece loves cupcakes. Who doesn't love crocheted food? Crochet pattern central has a whole page devoted to their patterns.

I started these last night and finished 'em up today. half a baker's dozen. Acrylic from chocolate cupcake to fluffy frostings. That purple one on top is a horrible yarn that was near impossible to get through. So I left off the ruffly bits on the edge there. See the light blue one? The "frosting" yarn was almost cottony. Acrylic comes in so many different colors and textures - it's frustrating to hear folks turn up their nose at acrylics. ...

I couldn't have done it without bittersweetblog. Thank you!!! I changed a few random things with with some of the cupcakes - the original ruffly edge was too bulky for me, and a coupla the cupcakes are a few shy of the 30 stitch repeats.

She is going to LOVE them. Today she carried around a muffin pan, full of the silicone cupcake sleeves, saying "you want a cupcake? you hungry?". I can't think of a better present. Awww, we heart you auntie Steph.
