Snow! It is amazing how drastically the weather can change from one day to the next around these parts, MashaAllah.
I actually typed that last sentence a few weeks back, gasp, and as usual I was unable to complete the post, most likely a cute little baby caught my attention :). Well I am back and though the first day of spring has come and gone it still very much feels like winter. Brr. Sometimes we get spoiled with a day of really beautiful springtime weather, but winter comes right back as though it never left. Alhumdulillah, winter is one of favourite seasons and I do love a good snowfall, but I am starting to really look forward to strolls in the neighbourhood and pushing my kids on the swings.
Well speaking of nicer weather, on one of our adventures sans snow, way back in November, my daughters and I, with the little one in the baby sling, caught the city bus and made our way to the Central library for a book sale! Naturally our first stop at the sale was the crafting section :). My eldest picked out a crocheting book called “Twinkie Chan’s Crochet Goodies for Fashion Foodies”, totally random but she really liked a cupcake scarf in the book and asked me if I could make it for her. Of course I obliged but due to various reasons was only able to complete it recently, and good thing too because I don’t know how much longer winter will be with us.
I have a feeling my Mom is going to love this scarf, she is a real baking enthusiast, hehe. In the book they used glued on pom-poms to decorate the cupcakes, but we decided to go with buttons that we could securely sew on instead. We are always wary of small objects ending up on the floor and the littlest miss getting her hands (and mouth) on them.
So there you have it, a cozy cupcake scarf, for my
little big girl, to keep her warm in what feels like our longest winter yet.
