For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb

let them knit cake


To raise money for Breast Cancer Care, fabulous Gina is planning to contruct a Marie Antoinette wig entirely from knitted cakes!  Now, if that's not a good idea I don't know what is.  To knit a cake and get involved with Gina's Pink Friday click here.

Last week I did a fair bit of knitting.  I needed some new samples and a fresh challenge.  Here is the little cakey slice I finally produced!  It's pudgy and wonky, but I'm pleased all the same.   The pattern is from Bittersweet (as seen in Bloggerversaire). 


I ventured out with this one.
Knitting: The cake slice.  75% complete.
Where: the pub.
Comments/stares:  Had a nice chat with the man on the next table about knitting.  For some reason he thought I was knitting fingernails?!

The big knit news I mentioned last week?  Well, that would be our knitting circle's newest project;The Big Knit 2011, which ironically involves knitting the tiniest hats known to mankind.  Innocent Smoothies has once again challenged knitters to mini hats for their smoothies.  Each hat raises money for Age UK.  This year's patterns are brilliant.  Check them out here and get your knit on.
