Pan, cookies and footlets.

Even though the party is this weekend, I had to give him something on his official birthday...


I know the feather needs a little trim...it's a little large. The costume or "Peter Pan clothes!" as Lucca calls them, is also a little big. That's ok, he will grow into it! Hopefully next week I will have time to take the sewing machine in so I can finish captain hook. I am not as brave as some people;)
I am also hard at work on these...

Sugar cookie wedding cakes for a shower this weekend. This is my favourite recipe, of course it is from Martha. A little sanding sugar and some dragees and I they will be complete!
Lastly, a little knitting content.

The footlets are complete. Yet to be washed and blocked, but they are done.
Started: Sept 2, 2005
Finished: Sept 9, 2005
Pattern: IK Spring 2005 Padded Footlets
Yarn: Lana Grossa Meilenweit Cotton Fun colour #321 and some in cream for the stripe.
Adjustments: I pretty much completely omitted the padded part. I tried it different ways, but decided to go it without. I really like them this way but I will eventually do the padded ones as well.
Now to make a sleeve for them and ship them off to my sister. She needs a lot of cheering up and cheering on...these should help out. In the least, she can wear them and know that her crazy knitting sister is thinking of her.

Oh, yeah... Sorry to do this, but you've been tagged! The questions are on my blog. Peer pressure, it's dangerous... ;)

I am not a big fan of little kids but I have to say - HE IS ADORABLE!

The footlets are wonderful and you are killing me with those cookies. Is there anything you can't do???

You sure are amazing, you do it all and then still shock us and suprise us further. I noticed you knitted the blanket from special knits by debbie bliss and I to am knitting it, but am not sure where to start attaching the edging. Did you start at the corner or in the middle somewhere?
