Does this mean I'm a little looney??
I think Dave Barry or someone said something like there was a fine line between having a hobby and being crazy.

I knit a cup cake from One Skein. It is very cute. It has no purpose other than looking cute. At this point it is not for anyone. My husband hasn't said but I think he thinks I've gone a little wacko. My only justification for knitting it is that it uses up little left overs, it's a very fast knit, and it makes me happy. Is that reason enough??

More details on my Ravelry page.

I'm going to go cast on another....

I think it's adorable!!!! My two charges would argue over who got to play with it first.

It's absolutely wonderful and looks delicious! No explanation needed whatsoever! I just love the buttons and ribbing detail on the sides.... the frosting is fabulous!

I think it looks yummy!
Tell yourself it's the kind of cupcake that gives all the pleasure and none of the fat... Besides - reasoning such a thing is really over-rated!

Not looney, creative! That is adorable and what a great way to use up those leftovers. And it serves the best purpose of all, making you smile!

That looks adorable. I have thought about making one for a friend on a diet.

Cute mindless knitting does not mean you are crazy, and the nurses like me to do it as they clean the padding on the wall, floor and ceiling in my room.
