Now if you'll remember I'm in the cake decorating class??? Well Tuesday was our second cake night and we were learning flowers.
OH MY WORD! The rose is the most annoying flower to learn, I still haven't got it down pat but I'm going to have to over the weekend as i need 6 of them for Monday's cake. The rest of the flowers were soooo easy to learn but when you have to put them sideways on a cake its a whole different ball game. Needless to say I need lots of practice this weekend. My cake however turned out like CRAAAAAAAAP! My icing had been in the fridge all day since I was at work and was hard and annoying to work with. I'll have to leave it out in the morning before I go to work next time. Glad the cake wasn't for anything specfic, Moose had already claimed it before it was made to take to the guys at work.
Don't laugh at my cake now! We all have to start somewhere.
Something else I forgot to show was my haul from Waterville. Sorry Jeanne
So here we have: 6 skeins of Tahki Tweed for my Tweedy Aran Cardi I'm casting on for today.
2 Skeins of Koigu in purples, greens and blues.
2 skeins of art yarns ultra merino 4 colour 139, green and blue.
3 packs of wooden buttons for my cardi
Hedgy Hedgehogs pattern, can't wait to make these cuties.
Some carded , wool, angora llama mix.
And acid dyes, so maybe I can get this dying down pat.
Well I'm off to start knitting, hopefully I'll have a few fo's to show you shortly!
