Anyone hungry for cake?



This is my latest creation: The Birthday Cake Hat, from Itty Bitty Hats.
I absolutely love this book! The patterns are mostly simple yet so stinking adorable! I know a little girl that will be turning 1 this year and this hat is going to her. I was amazed at how quickly this thing flew off the needles! The toughest part for me was crocheting the icing. I haven't really crocheted in years and I was never that good to begin with. Fortunately, the icing doesn't have to be completely perfect for it to look adorable. But now, my crochet muscles are sore! Yes, there are crochet muscles. Didn't you know? There are certain muscles you use to knit, purl, crochet, and even to use my ball winder!
We have our last football game tonight. HOORAY!!! I would just like my Saturdays back please. Thank you.
Have a wonderful weekend!

very sweet. I will have to check out the hats when I master dish cloths. I taught myself to knit recently. It is definately different muscles than my crochet muscles!!!!!

I actually bought a hat like that one time (not as cute as yours) but my nudist room mate wore it and I never asked for it back because I think he also put it on his pee pee.

I wish I had a burfday hat.

Angela, THANKS! I wonder how many candles I could actually fit on one! Hmmm....now you've got me thinking...2YO will be THREE in December and I could TOTALLY get three candles on that hat!

I love that hat! Maybe I will get back into crocheting but knitting Im just not sure Im cut out for. My mom was brilliant, I was not. Only time will tell. Maybe I will venture down the knitting path again.
