My very first cupcake. Ever.
Completed in September 2012

This is my first knitted cupcake. It's strawberry flavored. With a bit of swirled vanilla frosting. And a cherry on top.

Now who, in real life, bakes a cupcake like that? I admit, it's a bit over the top.

I winged the pattern. Obviously.

Knit with my favorite Jamieson & Smith brand two-ply jumper weight Shetland wool on 2.0mm DPNs, just to be tedious. And some angora that's been in my stash.

I am now trying to perfect the pattern for a perfectly round cherry. Wow, it's really difficult to achieve a perfectly round little knitted ball!
