These are looking like the best cupcakes I have ever made! They are RED. I don't usually end up using enough red food coloring so my from scratch Red Velvet are more like Brown Velvet cupcakes.

I haven't tried one yet but did sample the dough and I think my mouth is still red.

Sneak Peek!

Here's a sneak Peak of the yarn that will transform into something amazing.... there's a little something started on the needles! Christmas project 4! 3 down and ? many more to go?

A little someone getting into his favorite cupboard

hanging out in his room. I moved things around to give him more space... a little reading nook!

Just when I think I have the place safe for him he learns that he can do or get into something else! Is a house ever really toddler proof?

Making some Red Velvet Cupcakes! Finally- thanks Pine Needles in Pincushions!

Knitting Needles

I've been busy lately working on Christmas gifts. My goal this season is to make all the peeps on my Christmas list something. In the past I end up going over board and this year we need to stay a bit in control.

I have two gifts complete and a third on the needles. The third was actually the second but I am running out of yarn and had to find a local source that had the same color. I decided to skip ahead to the third project because it was a fast knit. I completed it this morning. It's a bit bigger than I planned but I guess at the end of the day I would rather have something to big than to small. Room to grow.

This weekend I plan to head over to Alberta St. Close Knits and pick up some yarn.

I have been trying to use up left over yarn and was able to do it with two of the projects.

So I will take photos as I go and then once the gifts are out I will update with photos and who received what.

The fun is I have all these ideas and once they are all made they will get matched up with the perfect person and make the best Christmas gift EVER!

Happy Knitting!

I am a bit bugged right now because I have a little bag of knitting gadgets... double pointed needles, darning needle, measuring tape, stitch markers and I CAN'T FIND IT!

It's making me crazy because I swear it's on the table and it's not. I have looked every where. Our place is not that big so where can it be?

I have two Christmas gifts that are almost finished but I need something out of that little bag in order to finish both of them.

Do I really want to go out and buy new stuff? NO.... but if I can't find it by this weekend I am going to have to.

They say a witch knows where every thing is... well if there are any witches out there please tell me where my little blue bag of knitting goodies is!

Thank you.
