Hello there, Cupcake!

Introducing…the first crochet project I’m showcasing on my blog!

My sister is an amazing crocheter. When I was younger, I was absolutely amazed by the stuff she made – everything from a simple picot trim on a kitchen towel to a gorgeous tablecloth. She attempted to teach me once – we didn’t get too far. I was convinced I could never learn the intricacies of weaving yarn into knots with a hook.

Fast forward to now (oh, about 20 years later!), and I love crocheting! It’s very relaxing to to work with the yarn and the hook – almost hypnotic. About 2 years ago, I taught myself from a book I picked up with a 50% off coupon from AC Moore on a whim (ya know I couldn’t let the coupon go to waste now!). My very first project was a scarf made from granny squares.

Enough about all that – onto the Cupcake!

I made this little guy from a pattern in Ana Paula Rimoli’s book – Amigurumi World: Seriously Cute Crochet – ISBN-10: 1564778479

Mr. Cupcake was super easy to make following the pattern in the book. The instructions were clearly written, so that even I – a complete novice at crocheting – could succeed!

The pink  frosting yarn is Vanna’s Choice and the tan yarn is Red Heart Designer Sport.

I haven’t decided quite yet what to do with Mr. Cupcake yet. My friend Liz owns a baking business – Cookies to Cocktails – http://www.cookiestococktails.com/ – so I’m thinking Mr. Cupcake might like to go to live with her. 🙂
