    The cupcake stitch? Wow, that’s sweet! You’re making me hungry!

    Thanks for featuring my cupcake in a jar (#9). This is my all time favorite dessert! You have to give it a try and let me know what you think. =)

    Tamara, These certainly are sweet! For the #3 Cupcake Cradle Purse, is that the one you said you made and if so, what brand/type/color name yarn is the Variegated Pink? I’ve been trying to find it without success. Sure would love your help, please! Thanks!

      Hi Arlene! That was the one I made, yes! Unfortunately, that yarn was a one-off sold at Target of all places, about 10 years ago. I’ve never even seen it since!
