Busy busy busy

I've been on a knitting roll lately. I finally decided that it was high time that i learn how to knit on dpns. I've tried them before and it just led to disaster. So why would I subject myself to that torture again? I wasn't going to let a simple 3 or 4 needles defeat me. Plus I wanted to be able to say that I CAN knit with them. So off I went. I successfully knit my first pair of fingerless gloves on dpns. I realized that after I did the first one that I had knit it "inside out" Sigh....so I spent an hour trying to figure out how to correct this. I finally figured it out and was able to do the 2nd one correctly. I must admit that dpns aren't as scary as I thought they'd be. They were actually fun to use. I don't mind using them at all. Here's a pix of one of the completed gloves.


So after the success of my first pair I have already cast on and completed one for a new pair.

Tonight i was on a roll. My youngest enjoys "Play" cooking. So i decided to crochet her a cupcake. I used a pattern off the internet. Next time I make it I will add more rounds to make the base higher. I may look into trying to "wing" one myself. Alas it was a hit.


And here is Alysia cooking it.

It's been a busy fiber night.
