Zero Calorie Cupcake...

I went on a diet, swore off drinking and heavy eating, and in fourteen days I lost two weeks. -Joe E. Lewis

I was browsing thru an old Crafts 'n Things a month ago and saw a little cupcake pin cushion...it was cute, but small...and well....I don't knit, so I passed it by. As the days went by, though, I couldn't stop thinking about it. I have a friend...well a few friends, but 1 in particular that just LOVES cupcakes! So, I asked a friend at work who knits if she had ever seen one. She hadn't so we went searching...and boy was I delighted and surprised to see the number of Knit Food Patterns there are on the web. Cupcakes, Doughnuts, Cake, Fruit...wow!

So Diane got started and made me one that I could send to Jessica...and then the obsession began...I think she has made 10-15 of these darlings in the last month! Good thing she does a lot of Craft Shows! :)


I wish I had taken more pictures...maybe Jessica has taken some...I'll check and add them here if she has more.

ETA: Here are a few more pics Jessica took...gives you an idea of the size...

(If you are interested in purchasing one of these contact me and I will get you pictures of what is available, or Diane can make one to your color specifics. They are $10 each)
