Strawberry Cupcake Hats Forever!

It is minus 14 celsius with windchill right now, and snow is in the forecast for this afternoon! Winter is on definitely on its way~ but I’m not sour about it. In fact… I’m excited because I can top my outfits office with cute warm accessories!! To celebrate (I might be the only one!), I knitted myself a cute new toque. Cupcake themed, because what else could make you smile in the middle of a blizzard!?

This was a super quick knit that I worked on during my downtime at work yesterday. I opted for Super Bulky yarn which makes it really thick and toasty for Canadian winters. The toque is in three parts, which I did freestyle, or without a pattern: the liner, the frosting, and the strawberry, and then sewn up at the end.

The yellow cupcake liner is ribbed in Lion Brands’ Hometown Glory (Super Bulky) in Pittsburgh Yellow. I ended up knitting it short side down – so it ended up looking like a long skinny scarf just so I could get the exact length for my head.

The pink is Lion Brands’ Neon Pink. I think the colours are so delicious together! It’s then topped off with a bright red strawberry.

It may be chilly outside, but that shouldn’t stop you from dressing super sweet!

My Ravelry is here if you’re looking for any knitting buddies. 🙂

Something sweet and new… What I’m Wearing Wednesday!

I’ve been thinking of doing some weekly themed posts for some variety and to do something consistent here on the blog!! So welcome to the very first What I’m Wearing Wednesday!! I’m super ready to share some of the silly fun things I put on myself!

Like everybody, I’ve been eating SO MANY SWEETS lately… and have been enjoying every single one. But my tights are a little snug and my teeth probably won’t agree (rather terrified for the dentist next week – EEK!) so maybe it’s time to cut back a teeny tiny bit….

So instead I’ve exchanged my plates of cookies with dresses full of TREATS! This was my yummy outfit for work today where I dreamed of sugar plums perhaps a bit too much…:

Dress: Wish
Cardigan: Calvin Klein
Donut Scarf: Dollar Tree has them for Valentine’s Day 🙂

I do wish I could have got a full body shot without looking like a total dork (haha!), but I’m also wearing black Mary Janes, hot pink tights, and a donut necklace. I was on a sugar high all day today, so I’ll sleep well tonight!

(Can’t wait until the sun stays up a little bit longer so I can get a decent picture! I pretty much live in a cave without a lot of lighting so I need sunlight or I get fuzzy blur!)
