Random Happenings at Celtic!

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!

You are the Cupcake Goddess!! :) Your mom looks like a younger version of my stepmom - it's a little eerie, actually.

Oh, cool - loops! Sockie should be more supportive of your achievements. ;)

Bummer about the acid dyeing. I wish I could come over and help you out!!! How frustrating... I can't think what's up, either. Good luck with the Wilton's - make sure your yarn is well-soaked in white vinegar and water first. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you! And maybe you should to this contest and try to win some easter egg day and sock yarn to dye. :)

Yay!! All kinds'a pretties at Celtic Cast On today! Yummy pretty cupcakes and pretty pretty (wait... your mom is only 40? NO WONDER she looks so good - my gosh she's only two years older than ME)... Pretty pretty stitch markers! I bet your pal will LOVE whatever you dye with your wilton's dyes - and you can always ask me questions about them too but I don't know nothin' 'bout no acid dyes! heh Maybe you can send your pal some stitch markers! :)

Gorgeous wedding picture. You're both beautiful. Acid dyes set better baked in the oven at 350 for 15 -130 minutes.
