This weekend we enjoyed a visit from an old friend and her new baby daughter. Much fun was had by all, especially the lass who dotes on babies. Now S and I have known each other for a very long time, practically from the day she was born, in fact, since her parents and mine were friends – still are, in fact. We spent many holidays and weekends together as kids, and once we got old enough to be let loose in the kitchen, we somehow got into a habit of making muffins – or cupcakes – whenever we had the chance.
It fell quite natural, therefore, to spend a few hours this weekend testing out Lille Hottentott’s pattern for crocheted muffins. With a rattle piece inside (purchased from Kaptein Biff), it was the perfect present for the baby.
