At the lys (local yarn shop) I work at part time I've been leading a KAL (knit a long) for toe up socks. Today was the last official meeting for this group and I thought we needed to celebrate with some cupcakes. Of course being that this is the month of October I found another recipe for pumpkin cupcakes. As I've mentioned before I follow several cooking blogs. This recipe for Pumpkin Brown Butter Cupcakes with Cinnamon Frosting comes from the blog SprinkleBakes
I actually followed the recipe as written. This was my first time to make a cooked frosting and the flavor is light and not really sugary sweet. And the best part is the cupcakes are delicious. I must confess I had one for breakfast and another after lunch. And since a few did come home with me I am seeing another breakfast of cupcake tomorrow. Life is good!!
Speaking of toe up socks, the general consensus of the group is we all prefer knitting top down socks. After a pair and a half I am still a fan of the top down. I am on the look out for a different heel for a toe up so if you have any suggestions please share them. We used the pattern from Ann Budd's On-Your-Toes Socks from Interweave Knits, Summer 2007
