Epic Cake Failures

cake fail
Who doesn’t love a cake?  Not only are cakes delicious, but they convey the many expressions of humanity in a succinct, confectionary message.  Typically we find messages of joy, love, and well wishes.  But, while exploring the delightful world of cakes, we discovered that there was a whole other world that existed.  Who knew just how many different sentiments could be conveyed on a cake?  Here are just some of the many examples that we found (yikes):

Sometimes, we are in such a hurry to convey a heartfelt message that we are a little hasty with our execution.  We don’t always get it completely right.  What can we say?  It doesn’t get much better than this:

We didn’t feel that any of these required further explanation.  And, besides, we wanted to get in some stuff about knitting.  So, first let us tell you about a great event that will be held on Sunday, April 30th, between 12:00 and 3:00.  Lisa Myers, owner of Fairmount Fibers (Manos Del Uruguay), will be teaching a brioche class.  We will be doing the Churros pattern:

Please register in advance for this class.  Bring a size six, 24″ or 32″ circular needle, (if you don’t have one, we can provide it).  We will be using two different colorways of Fino of Manos Del Uruguay.  We will have a selection of this yarn from which to choose.  The cost of the class is $30.00.  You can register on line for this class at this link: http://www.knittingtoknowewe.com/classes-and-events/, stop by our store or call at 215.598.9276.  It should be great fun to make this beautiful scarf.

We have nearly sold out of the new Cocoknits book, but more are on the way.  We are all doing projects from it, and it is awesome.  Come in and check it out, along with choosing a great yarn to use.  We have just gotten in more Madeline Tosh, Shibui (And more Shibui should be in any minute.  New Shibui Linen! Yay!), and beautiful Anzula.  Lots of great new things.

Our store will be closed on Easter Sunday, but open on Saturday (in case you aren’t hiding eggs that day or baking a cake.  If you are baking a cake, Easter is spelled E-A-S-T-E-R.  Just keepin’ it real.)

So, have a great holiday, and just remember that a cake is always a nice thing.  Even if there is a surprise in it or on it.



See you soon!
