Wow, those are so cool!  I love how colorful they are.  And most importantly, your little guy looks happy to be wearing them.  Smiley

It looks complicated..., and delicious!
Great job!

All it takes is a 1M (large open star) piping tip and the ability to draw slightly overlapping circles with a fairly steady hand.  It only looks complicated, promise.  Smiley

Thanks for the love, everyone!

I made this for one of my younger sisters for her birthday.  She sent me a picture of the pattern a few months ago, but she doesn't know I made it for her.  I'm pretty sure she'll be happy with it.  Smiley  It's on its way to her right now (she lives in upstate New York, and I'm in Texas), and I can't wait to see how she looks in it!

The pattern is Wren Wolf Cowl found on Ravelry, and the yarn is Bernat Softee Chunkee.

The pattern calls for a seam along the top of the hood, but I opted for kitchner stitch instead.

The ears don't really stand up, but I'm okay with it.

View with the top down =)

Thanks for looking!
5  COOKING / Dessert / Romantic Rosette Cake for Valentine's Day on: February 14, 2015 01:37:30 PM
Here's a simple cake I made for my guy and me for Valentine's day.  It's three layers of red velvet, filled and frosted with cream cheese icing.  Pink, of course.  Wink

This was my first time piping with cream cheese frosting, and the only problem I encountered while working with it was that it tasted so damn good I "sampled" way too much of it, haha.  Embarrassed  I love that this cake was low stress and easy to do.  And I can't wait to dig into it tonight!  Grin

Picture time!

Thanks for looking, and happy Valentine's day!

Aww, he is so cute!  I would totally wear the adult size, and I would name him Tod.  Cheesy

You did a great job on him!

Thanks everyone for all the great comments!

I loved the yarn, too!  It was my first time working with Malabrigo Rios, and I will definitely be buying it again.  I don't know if you can quite tell in the photos, but there are really subtle variations in the color.  It's not variegated, but it's like some parts of the yarn are more intensely colored and some parts are more faded looking.  I like the overall effect.

He will grow into it. Hmmm, I wonder if I could squeeze into it in the meantime Wink.

I have a petite friend who might be able to squeeze into it, but I think I'll have to wait about 10 years before I can start stealing sharing his clothes.  The thought did cross my mind, though.  Cheesy

My Harvest cardigan is finally complete!  I actually finished knitting it at the end of December, but I wasn't able to order buttons until a week ago.  (Christmas left us broke!)  Anyway, the buttons came in today, and I couldn't wait to get them attached and take some photos.

The pattern is Harvest by Raya Budrevich (found on Ravelry).  Yarn is Malabrigo Rios in a color called Teal Feather, and the buttons are from Woodland Workshop on Etsy.

I made a size 2T and added length to the hem and sleeves.  And that would have been totally fine, but here's where I messed up a little:  I didn't block my gauge swatch!  I don't know why it didn't cross my mind to do so.  Maybe because I've never knit a sweater or cardigan -- mostly hats and shawls so far.  Anyway, lesson learned.  The good news is that it will fit him perfectly next year!  Cheesy

Picture time!  These shots were taken outside where it was pretty bright, so the color is kind of washed out.

I'm kind of obsessed with the buttons.

Action shots!  These photos are closest to the actual color.

(^^You can see how long it is here.  And the sleeve cuffs are rolled up, too!)

Full details on my Ravelry project page.  Also, (and I hope this is allowed) feel free to add me there.  I have like one friend.  Roll Eyes

Thanks for looking!

Thank you!  Definitely try out the recipe if you get a chance.  I had to convince a few family members to give it a shot because they thought it was fruit cake.  Which I guess it technically is a fruit cake, but soo not the same thing. Cheesy
