Wee Tiny Baking And A Whole Lotta Knittin Goin On!!

First you take a few Wee Tiny baking tools and a wee tiny cake plate.

Mix a together a few ingredients...

Pop in the oven and POOF.....a few minutes later you have your very own, adult, Easy Bake cake!

This cake was so utterly decadent and rich that it took 3 adults two days to eat it!!! This is a 4" cake folks!! Double chocolate, sour cream DIE for!!!

And....since this IS after all a knitting blog here are a few things I have been working on no particular order.

Future shruggish style summer cardigan garment.


AND.....MORE Socks!!!!

I also received a shipment of Berrocco Vintage Wool. I had received an EM about this yarn, took a chance and ordered enough for the Sugarmaple shawl and a summer cardigan.

WOW......this yarn is very soft but strong enough to hold good stitch definition and be hard pressed to know this is a blend of wool and nylon.

I plan on keeping the shawl over the back of my chair to pull around my shoulders on chilly nights...and considering how the cats love to sleep on anything I knit...I will be able to throw in the wash when needed and not have to worry about felting. I'm glad I hadn't already started this project with the Auracania yarn I had planned on using!!

Hmmm.......It seems I fell down on the Webs site too..... :) :) :)

But more on that when the Box-O-Bliss arrives.

I hope everyone has a WONDERFUL Labor Day Weekend!!

And just *where* is *my* mini cake?!? Or the phone call to tell me that a mini cake had been made within 5 minutes of my house? ::sniff:: ;-)

How in the world do you manage to work on that many socks at the same time and still manage to get them all done in a reasonable amount of time?! I swear, I think you've got your hubby knitting at night and you're just not telling us. lol

The little cake stand is sooooo cute! Makes the cake look even more delicious.
