FO Friday: Lollipop Hitchhiker

It took me a few months, but I finally finished my second hitchhiker and I'm so so pleased with it. It's the perfect accessory to brighten up a dull winters day.

The yarn I've used is Knit Picks Chroma in Lollipop colourway

On the non-yarn front, I've also completed a sewing project for a friend of my daughter. It was her Birthday the other week and I was informed she likes Hello Kitty. I didn't want to just buy her a generic HK toy which she may or may not already have so I made her a craft apron instead

I couldn't work out a way to show it off without it being on a body so here it is on my semi-naked daughter

it also converts into a bag

On the baking front I tried out a recipe from Pinterest. I pin a lot of things and rarely try them out. I need to fix that. A friend of mine has an amazing blog where she's working through her pinterest board and blogs about it...go check it out, it's amazing! Click here

Anyway I saw this idea and thought it would be really cute to make for another of my daughters friends (we missed her Birthday party, so this was our peace offering. I kinda suck at piping icing, hence the swirly haphazard mess you see below.
