Well, now that the Secret Pal thing on livejournal is over, I think I can post the knits I sent to my Secret Pal.

Each month I sent her a knitted cupcake/muffin, which increased in size.

baby cupcake:

made with size 3's, I think

bran muffin:

made with US 7

blueberry? muffin

made with US 10

made with acrylic scraps, noro kureyon scraps, lamb's pride bulky and mystery nubby thick & thin wool I bought when I first started knitting.

pattern here: http://ax174.blogspot.com/2006/02/my-own-pattern-iv-cupcake.html

I also sent her a scarf..

heh.. sorry for the faceless, 'fierce' photo.  it was the best for showing off the scarf.
I used 2 skeins of Colonia 140 from handpaintedyarn.com in 'Sotobosque,' which means underbrush in Spanish.
pattern: http://www.sheepinthecity.prettyposies.com/archives/000079.html
