Imagination

"Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!" Dr. Seuss First of all a little quiz this morning: What could taste better than these rich dark chocolatey cupcakes? Well, a little imagination and the answer is simple! That would be rich dark chocolatey cupcakes spread with peanut butter frosting and garnished with Reese's Cup sprinkles!!! Pretty rich, though. I thought these would be a yummy treat for tailgaiting tomorrow when we travel up to Columbia to watch the Gamecocks take on the Tennessee Vols. I found the recipe on the Food Network and thought it was worth a try. The results are pretty awesome. The Hemlock Rink Blanket is progressing. You can begin to see the "feather and fan" portion . It is a little challenging to photograph due to knitting in the round. It looks like a big puffy mushroom, getting larger all the time. .
As we knitters know, one cannot have too many projects underway at the same time! Ashley has enticed my to start (and finish quickly) a baby "cocoon" that she will use with infant . photography. She has chosen a few yarns for these cocoons. The first is Aysen from Araucania. She has another Rowan yarn for me that I haven't seen yet. As in other items, Ashley has excellant taste in yarn. I can't wait to see her first photos using the cocoons. I just got started on the first cocoon last night. It will be a quick project. I love to see these unique colors unfold as the knitting progresses. Have a safe and happy Halloween!!!!

The cupcakes were fabulous! Tucker, Fields and I shared one as we drove home from Graves. I put the other in the fridge for a special treat later but Tucker found it first and ate it all! They were amazing!!
