Mossy Border Tank Top

Mossy Border Tank TopI finished it long ago, but have been too busy to even think about a photo shoot, much less noting the details. Since Ravelry automates the noting of project details, I use their database instead of typing everything out here. I suggest y'all go sign up for Ravelry. It's free, and it's like MySpace for knitters and crocheters.

I used humble Sugar'n Cream yarn, in sage heather, a Bond knitting machine, and then handknit the borders. For the moss panel in the middle, I actually dropped down those stitches after working them on the machine, and then worked them back up in moss stitch - something easily done with a 10" double-ended crochet hook.

Wilton Cake DecoratingMy cake decorator training has been keeping me from my needlework - sometimes for days at a time! Now I'm an official Wilton Method Instructor. I started my first cake decorating class this month, Course 1, where I teach a beginner class the essentials of cake decorating. So far, everything's been great fun. In the meantime, I leave you with the photos of my latest cake creations.


  1. Wow, those cakes are just stunning! I especially love the blue and white one! I have no baking ability, especially when ti comes to cakes. 99% of the time I end up with crumbs in the frosting. : ( I usually leave cake-making to my husband - he's much better at it.

    Have you thought about getting into selling wedding cakes? It seems like there's a lot of money to made with it. My sister just got married in May, and it still astounds me that her (small) wedding cake cost $400.

    The knitted top is really pretty too!
