I really love carrots! This is my favorite recipe for real carrot cake. It is so yummy! I don't make it often though, because I do not like shredding so many carrots. This one is not so beautiful because I tried to make it too quickly, started late and wanted a piece before bed. Beauty is not important when eating this cake! Does anyone know of an "I love carrots" bumper sticker?

Preliminary ideas... I am trying to figure out a way to keep my circulars in a more stretched state. I have the cute roll up thing for them, which is neat, however, it keeps them too neat and tightly wrapped. I tried cutting this plastic canvas. Now, I need to think of some kind of holder for the 5 sheets...

Usually, incomplete items aren't posted. I've been working on this man-sized sock for several days and wanted to post progress because I had to rip it all out and turn it back into a ball of yarn. I still have a long way to go on perfecting socks.

Snowballs start rolling... With the dye out for the eggs, we had to use the leftover dye on some yarn, once we had some yarn out, we had to get out some more dye. You see where this is going. I consider this a final success to get these colors, (after 5 other skeins of trying).

This may look like an ordinary vacuum plug, but its not. Ok, maybe it is. But it was sadly severed from its cord and I went beyond my usual crafty limits and rewired, attatched, and screwed it all back together. I had to use lots of electrical tape- but none of it ended up in the finished product.

Pink cardigan sweater. I've never attempted a sweater before so I started with doll-sized. I am fairly pleased with how it turned out. I'm going to skip the buttons for now because it will cause more frustration for little hands than necessary. The sweater is too small for dolly Sarah, but it fits the 18" American Girl type dolls very well.

Reposting for improved picture. This is a little tiny pot I made for the dollhouse last year. It was blurry and difficult to see when I first posted it. This time I have learned a bit about photographing it. Positioned it on top of my favorite (and often-used) seam ripper for perspective on size.

Not actually on the baby it was intended for. This 'baby' hat also fits Abigail perfectly. (completely stretched) It looks so cute on her and it is also great for holding tangerines when you are up in the tree picking them. (or so I've seen) No worries- I have enough yarn left to make that baby a gift still.

Ok folks, this is it! I think I have almost mastered the baby sock! After that last disasterous sock I didn't think I could do it. I may make just one more small one before attempting some my size. Or maybe 2 more just to get a little extra practice.

Felting. Not too bad for a second attempt. These are some scraps I had laying around that I knit into these little pouches. The loop will fasten around a button sewn to the front- as soon as I find the right one. Hand-dyed by me.
