A few weeks ago I found a cupcake pattern in a magazine so I adapted it and made this for Halloween - although I'm not fond of spiders I do think he's rather cute. The cake pattern itself wasn't that good but it sufficed.
So imagine my joy when a little while later I got an e-mail from Julie to say I'd been one of the lucky five who had won a pattern for her knitted cupcakes, now I can knit these little cakes - aren't they gorgeous?
