The sweetness of cupcakes

I’ve been busy these past few days. It was Eid ul Azha here, and directly after I had to attend a wedding. Hectic, hectic. Today was the first ‘back to normal’ day I had. Got sustenance and my yarn with me, and i settled in for the entire day. Watched Greys and Castle and crocheted all day long. :’) Twas beautiful. Aside from the whole Cristina-Mer fight thing. I see where C is coming from, but it was a bit harsh, imho. Cant wait for Mer to fight back. OH! Speaking of fighting back…I got into IVS! :3 Quite pleased, I am. Take that, haterz. B|

Managed to lazily attach the fox’s arms and ears. It’s hind legs and eyes are left now.
Sigh. Shall do them when the ‘Okay, enough is enough. Finish this.’ feeling gets to me. :p Which wont be anytime soon considering everything else that I’m up to!

Moving on to the ‘everything else I’m up to’ thing, I made two owl beanies šŸ˜€ yayyy. Dad had flown in for eid, so he took me yarn shopping, and, oh, was that needed. Got 39 balls of beautiful colors :’) Double yay, anyone? Or are y’all seething in a jealous rage? *evil laugh*

The blanket, as you could have guessed by now, is on hold. I cant stick to the 4-granny-squares a day thing. How sad is my attention span? Going to try and do atleast one a day. *eyeroll* Seriously, I need to be able to stick to a project and see it through before starting not one, but ten new ones.

Observe owl beanie, #1:

In the picture the beak exists, but in reality I havent attached it yet.

Then we move on to owl beanie, #2:

Same problem, unfortunately. Sadly, the owl beak isn’t even crocheted yet for this one. D: Had to borrow the pink ones beak for the photoshoot. :p

I often wish I had a baby and/or toddler and/or child aged between 5-10. That way product photography could go so much better. My cats aren’t nearly as co-operative or understanding as would be a kid. I could bribe them with cookies. Cats dont take kindly to bribes, however. They assume everything is their birthright.

I am improving, though. Take a look here at this very yummy cupcake beanie. :’) And ITS NOT EVEN MY SIZE. Can you believe it? I made something that I WONT BE ABLE TO WEAR GAHHH. This upcoming exhibition better be worth it, thats all I have to say. -.-

See how its completed? :’) From the icing to the liner to the cherry on top. :3 Yayyy. Thinking I’ll do a sort of ‘series’. Vanilla, chocolate and strawberry. šŸ˜€

Todays goals:
*Make another cupcake beanie
*Complete the fox
*Make Avada Kedavra necklace
*Make five flower rings

Wish me luck! šŸ˜€ Update soon! (This is actually not a hopeful truth-lie, since I AM updating more regularly now. :3 )


Update on 12/12/12!

Hey all! Its winters here and, as always, I get swept away with this season. The sheer joy of writing up blog posts with your headphones plugged in, knowing you’re adding your voice to the millions already on the internet, your feet warm in a cute pair of crocheted slippers and a mug of hot cocoa sitting within reach accompanied by theĀ softest, most scrumptious chocolate cupcake you’ve ever had…yeah, thats something I always look forward to.

So regarding crocheting in general, I’ve taken up tunisian crochet and find itĀ irresistible. The knit-like stitches are so easy to do, and they work up really fast too. I turn into aĀ memorizedĀ robot when I’m at it. I’m actually working on a little project at the moment. Give it a week and I’ll be sure to post pictures. šŸ˜‰ Unless I’m too lazy. Which is probably whats going to happen.

Another project thatsĀ currentlyĀ on haitus right now is this net-like sweater thingy I’m working on. Thinking about making the sleeves those poofy-like things that are so in right now. The netting on those would be a bit more tighter, and smaller. The main body is going on about chains of six. I’ll hopefully post pictures of that too.


My interest in tunisian stemmed from learning how to make crochet cables. Post stitches. Sigh. How did I ever live without knowing them? Still, I can only make straight cables. No match for those windy, twisty ones.

Does anybody watch Greys Anatomy? I started about a month ago and got done with eight seasons, all the episodes of the ninth, and a new favorite show. Also a ton of new favorite songs. I think it was a mistake to kill of theĀ charactersĀ they did. They were vital to the show. And their second mistake, I think, was to continue the series. The ninth one seems to be quite a let down so far. Its also sad how everyone has gotten over the deaths so fast.

ANYWAY. Back to crochet. I’m bored with my current projects (the aforementioned ones), so I think I’ll start something new. But what? Any ideas?
