Loom Lady has a pattern for a loom knitted cupcake. I haven't loom knitted since I was a kid and was surprised to find it back in fashion. It is something I might explore when I have a little more time.
Every now and again I come across a blog that somehow I haven't stumbled across before and it blows me away. Little Cotton Rabbits is a wonderful read and filled with fantastic photo's and projects. These cupcakes are occasionally for sale in her little shop. Check out the mouthwatering knitted cake album. There is also a page of free knitting patterns to peruse.
Over at Morecambe Sands I am making it my blog of the day and featuring some wonderful DIY heart shaped crayons. Who knew that you could bake your own crayon shapes?
From Little Cotton Rabbits I was led to Blah Blah Blahhhg which has a seamless cupcake pattern and a list of people who have knitted it in various ways. Apparently there is a whole cupcake gallery on Ravelry but as there are still 2838 people ahead of me in the invite queue I can't see them yet, boo hoo.At least I am getting neareer to an invite. When I first joined there were over eleven thousand ahead of me.
Jean greenhowe has some free patterns for some jolly knitted eggs, just the right size to pop a little chocolate egg into. There are also two lots of "Tea Time Treats patterns" on the same page, knitted sandwiches, cakes, biscuits and finger food.
There are a few more lovely patterns on the page as well. The Rainbow babies make ideal fund raisers.
I have realised that the link I published, to the bacon and egg fry up pattern originally published in The Jackie Annual in 1979, does not work all the time. It might be permanently down, I am not sure. I thought it might be helpful to anyone landing here looking for it if I provided the pattern myself. I've also installed various ways that you can subscribe to this site.
