Cup Cake Hat


After seeing this delightful little hat over at Emmas Blog I just had to make my own Cup Cake Hat for my new little niece, Haley. I embroidered some sprinkles on but it didn't seem to have the same effect as Emmas so I unpicked the embroidery and left it plain. The pattern also called for worsted weight (10ply) and as I didn't have any on hand I used 8ply and as it is for a 1 month old baby it didn't matter that it was slightly smaller. It is being modelled by my much loved teddy bear. My mum won him in a raffle a few years before I was born and as I am turning 39 next month that makes him pretty old in teddy bear years and if you look closely he is showing his age.

I'm trying to think of what to make one of my friends expecting her 1st baby. This might be it!

I love the cupcake hat!(I don't have anyone to knit it for, so I'm just going to knit it I think, because I can)
I think your bear has done a fine job of modelling the hat!
Lucky niece!

Sharron, when you posted your SP5 stuff o-s did you have to put a return address and sign a declaration on the package? Sorry I know it's not related to the above post, but I'm now curious about the SP process.
