Out Of Action...Again

Mrs U Makes... Crochet Baby Hat @MrsUMakes #mymrsumakes #hatsofftoyakid

Ever since I started testing on the Diamant√© Shrug I've had a serious itch to start a new project. I spent most of last week searching through Ravelry and my Pinterest project queue board. Eventually I settled on this by Atelier Alfa. I didn't have enough stash yarn so ordered some from Deramores. 

This didn't ease my knitting crave as I'd have to wait for the yarn to become available. So off again I went looking for items to make until the yarn arrived, I realised that the easiest thing to make would be baby hats, crocheted baby hats to be exact. I'd be able to wing a few patterns and use up some of my yarn stash. My plan was to make about six hats and write up the patterns in an eBook, I even have a name for it.

Party Treats: Ninjabread Men & Superhero Cupcakes


I finally made the Ninjabread Men using the recipe that was on the back of the box they came in. This was the first time I'd made Ninjabread (gingerbread) biscuits, which I find very surprising. The recipe called for molasses and shortening, both of which I didn't have.
