Etsy Love

On my wishlist today....a hat that looks like a cupcake!

I can pass hour upon hour trawling the shops on Etsy wishing I could afford to buy something. Today I have found the most amazing hat ever - now in adult sizes!



look them up here

I am equally in love with the amazing headbands on LovMely.
Fancy headwear really brings an outfit from just being drab and boring





Plus, I do love feathers. They remind me of that AMAZING Burberry Prorsum dress that's been everywhere this season - Helena Christenson is wearing it on the cover of Dansk at the moment and she looks seriously hot.

My last Etsy find of the night is this bag



It's real alligator skin, as far as I can tell, but it's rather lovely anyway. Check the rest of the shop out here

here is a recipe for the cupcake hat, i want to knit one myself.

SIZE 1-4 years.

MATERIALS

Acrylic yarn in the following colors: Cup: 1 skein Gold Worsted Weight Frosting: 1 skein Pale Pink ww Cherry: Scrap Red Yarn, preferrably Chunky Size US 7 (4.5 mm) DPN, OR SIZE OBTAIN GAUGE Large-eyed, blunt needle Stitch markers Optional: Buttons, scrap yarn, beads, safety pins GAUGE 16 sts and 22 rows = 4" in St st BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE.

(MN) MAKE NUBBLE Pull loop through the next st as if to K, then place this look on the left needle next to the original st,2sts. Pull new loop through the second st as if to K, then place loop on the left needle next to the second st,3sts. Repeat twice¡ª5sts. BO 4 kwise. The fifth stitch is now on the right needle.

DIRECTIONS With Cup Color, cast on 80. Work in k2 p2 ribbing for 1 row, join in the round and continue k2p2 for 2 inches. Switch to Frosting Color. K one row. Next row, *K1, MN. Repeat until you made one row of nubbles. (40 times, but who wants to count that?) K until entire piece measures 5 1/2 inches. Switch to CC, *knit 8 stitches, place a marker. Repeat from * 9 more times. *K 6, k2tog, pass marker. Repeat from * 9 more times. *K 5, k2tog, pass marker. Repeat from * 9 more times. *K 4, k2tog, pass marker. Repeat from * 9 more times. *K 3, k2tog, pass marker. Repeat from * 9 more times. *K 2, k2tog, pass marker. Repeat from * 9 more times. *K 1, k2tog, pass marker. Repeat from * 9 more times. *K2tog, remove marker. Repeat from * 9 more times. Continue to k2tog until 5 stitches remain. Break off yarn and thread the end through the remaining 5 stitches.

With the chunky red, make a pom pom, about 1 inch wide. Whatever looks best on your cupcake.

Weave in loose ends.

Now here's an optional part: With the buttons, you can sew on sprinkles. Spare yarn, you can stitch on jimmies. Same thing with the beads, rhinestones, whatever you like. But if this hat is intended for a child under 2 years of age, DO NOT attach any buttons, or anything that can be pulled off and choked on
