I have finished the Diamanté Shrug, do you like it. The name was inspired by the diamonds running across the cowl , I would have loved to have had diamond shaped buttons on the back but I think the ones I finally choose do a great job of complementing it.

In my last post I wrote about the Superhero Party Rings that I tested in preparation for the tripolatas' 5th birthday party. On Friday I made a very small batch of marshmallow krispie treats, I set them in cake pop molds because I didn't think ahead and prepare something larger to set them in.

It's the tripolatas' birthday in a couple of weeks and throwing them a birthday party for the first and (according to Mr U.) last time. There isn't really a theme for the party itself but most of the food will be based on superheroes.
I asked each of the tripolatas who their favourite superhero was, tripolata 1 said Iron Man and Bumblebee from Transformers, tripolata 3 also said Iron Man for his first choice and "Hulk Smash!" as his second. Tripolata 2 chose Spider-Man and Captain America.

Yesterday I finished working on the Cowl Cardi (I'm still thinking of a name). Even up to the point of working the last stitch, I was still worried that it wouldn't work in the way that I had envisioned. As it was late I had to wait until this morning to pin the piece together and 'Thank You Lord' it worked. The size is great, the drape is perfect and the stitch pattern on the cowl is noticeable without being too out-there.
