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. 🙂

I dream of spring…ie!

This was a looong week! Maybe because it was the first full week back at work, or just the seemingly endless winterness, or just a case of the grumpies for some unknown reason, but it REALLY got to me!

My craft a day-ness suffered a bit because of it. There were a couple of days that I wasn’t able to do anything but knit a few stitches or glue a couple of pompoms and then did a proper hibernation and climbed into my cave at like 7 pm! Was just super sleepy!

But as soon as I escaped from work on Friday, I cranked up the heat in my house and threw on my most flowery dress and dreamed of green, flowers, and sunshine and I was BACK! This weekends’ accomplishments: bedazzled some photo frames, am relatively confident in doing a running stitch in sewing, made a LOT of new felt friends, organized my craft room (it was chaos and I kept losing Sugar in the mess!), polished off most of the remaining Christmas cookies (it had to be done :D), and walked a TON (to burn off the cookies and unwind)!

I was craving strawberries during my spring daydreams, so I made these guys out of felt!

Just have to keep remembering, sunnier days to come! 🙂 xoxo
