That is so cute! Looking at the patterns quickly, if you're comfortable with dpns, then it shouldn't be too difficult.

You might want to use cotton so they'll be a little stiffer than they would with a softer yarn. Don't want droopy cups!

SO CUte! I think it might take a few practices before you get it down, maybe use some other cotton you're not using for the finished project on?

Sugar n Cream is good and inexpensive, but may not be available in a lot of colors depending on where you go to buy it. I know knitpicks has some cotton yarn that looks beautiful...

These would be great felted!!!

I saw this on somebody's blog and she said she was doing it in Sugar & Cream. They do have a lot of bright colors and it is very reasonable.

Gosh, are those cute! My daughter's birthday (she'll turn 3) is in October, and I am thinking I just might have to make these and get comfortable with DPNs! :shock: Oh boy!!
