Cupcakes, Knitting, and Tea

I know my posts have been rather sporadic of late, but I do hope to correct this very soon. I have really been trying to do some 'actual knitting' and of course the Knit 1 Tea 2 swap has also kept me rather busy with the matches and such.

I have been having trouble with Isabella and am currently not a fan, but I am moving forward trying to make the most of it. Although I love cotton and Rowan, I am not a fan of the 4-ply cotton that this pattern calls for. It seems to stretch much more then I would like and keeping it tight
is not working out so well...When I got my invite to Ravelry I had no idea how useful I it could be until now. I of course knew I would like it, but now I love it. The greatest thing about Ravelry is the chance to email others who have worked on a project and ask them questions. It is so helpful.


What I was doing on Tuesday....what do you think?? Who doesn't love a good cupcake? I have been wanting these for awhile and finally I got them and am so happy with how they turned out.


Hope everyone is well and enjoying some wonderful knitting time and of course lots of delicious tea.

Happy Knitting!

Love the tattoos! If the Knight ever gets the guts to get his, we'll have to head to Boston.

And keep rubbing it in about Ravelry. POUT.

Your new tat is AWESOME!

I'm probably going to try and get a dragonfly one mid-month. I'm excited :D

I think isabelle is coming along nicely - glad you're getting lots of advice from Ravelry. For some reason I'd forgotten you were in - that explains quiet ;)

My gosh, this tattoo looks ever so cute, I just adore those little cupcakes! And your Isabella is coming along so beautifully - I'm sorry that you don't like the 4-ply cotton that much - perhaps you'll get used to it by the time? Love the colorway!
