Somehow, even though I was sure I was on a quest for project fidelity, I ended up working on three WIPS simultaneously. First up. we have Jules:Almost done the first sock, I just need to do the toe decreases. And the second sock, of course! I'm not worried- I don't suffer from second sock syndrome. To be honest, I don't quite get it- I hardly ever hear of anyone suffering from second sleeve syndrome, and it's basically the same thing. Then we have The Eyelet Ribbed Bandeau (ravelry link). This should have been finished ages ago, but when on the final button band, I misplaced the magazine with the pattern for a full three weeks. And after the first week of the pattern being MIA, I decided to cast on for.....Lelah. Because apparently I cannot have enough white, hand-knit tube tops. I'm noticing that I really slacked off over the Sunday Self Portraits, and for those of you who found them interesting, I'm sorry! I will get back to them soon. In the meantime, here are some choclate raspberry cupcakes that I hope make up for it: the chocolate buttercream icing was made up on the fly at about 6:30 this morning, and turned out less than perfect in looks, but top notch in taste. Yum! Those funny looking muffin wrappers? Those are my new silicone muffin cups, and I can't say enough great things about them. They baking perfectly, slide off the cupcake with ease (no losing cupcake stumps to clingy paper wrappers!), and are washable and reusable. I love them!
