WIP Roundup

Somehow, even though I was sure I was on a quest for project fidelity, I ended up working on three WIPS simultaneously. First up. we have Jules:Almost done the first sock, I just need to do the toe decreases. And the second sock, of course! I'm not worried- I don't suffer from second sock syndrome. To be honest, I don't quite get it- I hardly ever hear of anyone suffering from second sleeve syndrome, and it's basically the same thing. Then we have The Eyelet Ribbed Bandeau (ravelry link). This should have been finished ages ago, but when on the final button band, I misplaced the magazine with the pattern for a full three weeks. And after the first week of the pattern being MIA, I decided to cast on for.....Lelah. Because apparently I cannot have enough white, hand-knit tube tops. I'm noticing that I really slacked off over the Sunday Self Portraits, and for those of you who found them interesting, I'm sorry! I will get back to them soon. In the meantime, here are some choclate raspberry cupcakes that I hope make up for it: the chocolate buttercream icing was made up on the fly at about 6:30 this morning, and turned out less than perfect in looks, but top notch in taste. Yum! Those funny looking muffin wrappers? Those are my new silicone muffin cups, and I can't say enough great things about them. They baking perfectly, slide off the cupcake with ease (no losing cupcake stumps to clingy paper wrappers!), and are washable and reusable. I love them!

I thought everyone had second sleeve syndrome! Maybe no one talks about it because it's so painful to be so close to finishing such a big project, and then get stuck on a sleeve.

Those raspberries look delish!

Having only one WIP is over-rated--I love all your projects!

I hate all sleeves. The first and the second one.

But I love all cupcakes. We should trade cupcake recipes. I was thinking about those silicone cupcake thingies, but wasn't sure how they'd work. So I was using none. But now I think I'll give them a try.

It's so hard to knit for summer, and I can't think of a more summery knit than a white tube top -- why not make more than one?? I can't wait to see how they turn out!

The cupcakes....mmmm...

I hate both sleeves. Socks are easier because they are (usually) smaller.

Silicone cups? Didn't know such a creature existed. I love that idea. Cupcakes look delicious!

Yummmy, thanks for the review of the cupcake silicone bakeware, I was looking at that the other day.
I can't wait to see how the white Leeah looks.
