Dear Anna,

The lace shawl is really impressive! What is even more impressive is that you are knitting shawls not only for the bride but for the bridesmaids too!! Plain old stockinette socks will be your friend after the wedding is over.

I don't have much to share this week. I cast on for Wicked ( Ravelry link) by Zephyr Style last Thursday at knit night. I was drawn to this pattern because of all the options . . . you can knit it in worsted weight or lace weight yarn . . . with short or long sleeves . . . with or without the front pocket. Some knitters have even converted it into a cardigan (like THIS and THIS super adorable example). My plan is to knit a 3/4 length sleeve without the front pocket.

Hey, did you know that has three whole web pages dedicated to cupcakes??? Check out this train and butterfly cupcake mold! If I had kids I'd be all over these for birthday parties. And the cupcake courier solves that age old question of how to successfully transport cupcakes without spillage or frosting getting all over the place.....
