Wednesday was my mum's birthday but because I was working and so was mum I decided I would head down to see her on thursday *my day off* and visit before she went to work. Of course it wouldn't be a birthday without CUPCAKES!!!! My fourty shades of green butter pecan cupcakes! I grated some dairy milk bar *one of mum's favs* and sprinkled it on top.
Here's a picture of me and my mum on my wedding day! One of my favourite pics! Doesn't she look fabbbbbbbbbulous! I've very close with my mum, and my dad for that matter. Mum as you have seen previously is the knitting extrodinare. I can't wait until they move down here so I can have a knitting buddy!
LOOKEY LOOKEY WHAT I MADE!!!!!!!!! My jewellery class paid off cause that night I came home and made these! I can actually do the loop now. I was sooo excited I was swirling them around on my needle and yelling to Sockies, "SOCKIES YOUR MUM IS A FRIGGIN GENIUS!!!!" hehe She was thrilled as you can imagine.
On the dyeing note I have completely washed my hands of the acid dying. It just isn't for me. I tried again last night and it went on alot better but it didn't matter how many times I microwaved it the dye just wouldn't set and started running out when I was rinsing it. So that's it! Wilton's it is. I have a little bit of yarn left to play with and my one good skein for my pal. Fingers crossed it all works out for me please!
