sometimes once is not enough

I promised you non-vacation pics. Before it completely slips my mind, which now that I'm over 50 has a really nifty Teflon (R) coating, here they are.

The NSFW (Not Safe For Work) cake that our precious daughter baked and decorated all by herself, for her dad's 50th birthday. Yes, we're a weird family, why do you ask?

What the hell, it was worth the expression on his face when she presented it to him...

Autumnal Pursuits

Not trivial at all! Even though I've speeded up production to keep up with yarn orders and maintain an inventory, I've been severely bitten by the fall knitting bug. I started a February Lady sweater in yarn I just love, however I need 5 more skeins and they're on special order. To keep the mojo going, I started this from the Berroco Norah Gaughan book using this yarn. I'm just about halfway done. Really cranking on it, because fall is here, it's getting chilly, and I don't want to break down and buy myself a sweater! I guess that's motivation enough to finish something.

I also finished one of two hats I've been working on.

This is Le Slouch (I call my version "Le Suck") from Knit and Tonic. I absolutely love the yarn--Debbie Bliss Donegal Luxury Tweed. I'll probably give this one away though; it's not a bad pattern but even if I could pull off the beret look, it's way too small. I only usually wear a hat when I'm at the beach; the wind is always cold no matter what time of year it is, and it bothers my ears.

Guess I'll be back when the cardi is finished! Enjoy the first weekend of October. That's right, I said "October", where did 2009 go, anyway?!

LOL, boobie cake! Too funny! Love the hat, what a pretty colour! That sweater you are making is gorgeous and I can't wait to see it! I started a Feb Lady sweater but abandoned it for the Bombshell a few months ago.
Bwah hahahaha!

That cake just cracks me up! Did she serve it with matching booty ice cream scoops?
