Knit Night Birthday Treats

Vegan Yum Yum is responsible, but I took it up a notch on mine. I made flourless chocolate cupcakes, White Chocolate ganach icing and used fondant instead of marzipan! I also made shawls, socks and hats, opps just thought: I should have made some mittens!

Love everything about this shawl, especially the speed. If you have a need for speed, try this shawl. I started it November 2, 2010 and finished it November 10, 2010. I made this shawl with Zitron Trekking Maxima in color 901 a beautiful blue, purple and yellow self striping sock yarn.

Okay, Ravelry doesn't take my pics in threads unless I grab them from my blog. So here's some more pics of the Chevron. I made it with two skeins of Fiesta Baby Boom, colors Wild Oak and Salsa. I really love this scarf.
