I finished my first hat! (and I’ve done some baking in-between!)

Wohoo! I have completed my first hat. I has only taken like forever! -_- I was so chuffed when I finished it. The hat isn’t for me, the best friend paid me to knit it for her.

Here it is modelled by Ginger – (My Teddy Cat)

Yep…in my dressing gown! How I am most Sundays! Wake up from a night out with a hang over and I start knitting! 😛 Took me a while to do this project, it was so boring to do. I am not the fastest knitter in the world, and k1 p3 then p1 k3 to get the rib effect…*snore* I can defiantly do rib now. I used King Cole Price Wise DK in Black (as you can see) 😀 I actually knitted this on smaller needles than it stated, probs why it took so long!

So now I have done that I am working on a sampler blanket, and I am currently doing a square which has bobbles and is in hot pink! Woo. I have also started a bolero in DK :-). I shall do a separate post on them. 🙂
As for baking. My friend and I decided to have a girly night in baking and watching the Twilight films with wine!

 

Here is the beginning off the Strawberry Cheesecake Cake Cupcakes (bit of a mouth full). I’m surprised we didn’t eat all the strawberry’s.

 

Here’s the end result! We made our own cream cheese frosting. Yum Yum Yum. We used the recipe from The Humming Bird Bakery Cook Book.

450g of dark chocolate went into our next recipe! :-O Another recipe from The Humming Bird Bakery Cook Book.

Here’s the end result. We put in fudge cubes as well! Double chocolate and fudge cookies! Oh they were so gooey and lovely!

Hope you all have been well!

Here’s a photo from me at the weekend!
