Calorie - Free Cupcakes!

I am madly in love with this cupcake pattern. I think these chubby little cakes are just the cutest thing ever created and I am ecstatic that I finally found a knit pattern for them.

I bought this pattern on Etsy at CakesKnitsandCosies. After drooling over it for weeks I finally gave in and just bought it. I have spent this weekend making up these little cakes as pincushions to sell in My Etsy Store. It just so happens that a local yarn shop is currently closing out all of their knitting yarns and accessories. They are no longer going to cater to the knitter:( On the bright side, I was able to get these nice colored 100% cotton yarns at a great discount. I have to go back there periodically as they continue to drop prices. I really want to snatch up all the wools they have, Alpaca, Merino, Highland wool, etc. It is a knitters dream in there right now.

If you are into knitting, or know someone who is you should check out the ScaryMerry shop on Etsy. They make the cutest stitch holders and knitting needle toppers I have ever seen. They are a favorite shop of mine also. I have not purchased anything from them yet, but I do have a running list of all the things I want to buy for family members that knit. (and to add to my own knitting stash of course!)

I only made 4 cupcakes, so obviously I didn't knit non stop all weekend. but I did spend a few hours on it here and there. The rest of my time was spent adding items to my Etsy store, and checking out the sale on Lion Brand Yarn at our local Hancock Fabrics. They sold all Lion Brand Yarn for 30% off this weekend. I went and picked up a variety of colors in the Lion Wool. I am planning to knit some purses and coasters and things to felt and sell in my Etsy store. Unfortunately these projects will have to wait a few days. I have several commitments for my ATC trades that have to be fulfilled this week before I can do anything else.
