Cupcake Hats


So it only took 2 days, but my Ravelympics knitting got put on hold for a few days when I found a pattern for CUPCAKE HATS!!!  With a few modifications, I whipped up these two hats for my girls for Valentine's day.

Here is the baby size on RuRu...
I love her little gummy smile!



And here is the big kid size on Sammie:


The cupcake sisters:

I'd like to find some larger beads to thread on the yarn and add as "sprinkles".  All of the beads I usually use for knitting are too small.  So at some point I'm going to have to trek down to the bead store in Greenwood.

Today I'm back to my Ravelympics knitting.  I did finish a pair of bubble socks, and made more progress on my shawl.  I'm so excited because the designer of the shawl, Stephen West, is coming to a local yarn store in March!  Just might have to go meet him in person!

NOTE:  Yes! I am taking orders for these hats.  From the time of posting this I have 4 orders, so the wait will be approximately 2 weeks from the time of ordering to shipment.

Baby sizes will be $32 (or $38 with beads), kids will be $36 (or $42 with beads).  I don't have any hats with beads knitted so far, but they are strung on the yarn before knitting, so not a choking hazard.  I will try to post one with beads soon so you can see.

When ordering, you need to include size desired, "frosting" color preference, and if you want the bead "sprinkles" or not.

Email me for more info or to place your order!  nonapearl@firebin.net
