Edited to add this note from my friend (and to fix the title spelling error. Geesh!)
Thanks for posting the cake on your blog. Tell the ladies I'm very grateful for all the kind comments. The cake itself was golden vanilla with a vanilla rich fudge, covered in buttercream then fondant. The yarn balls were malted balls rolled on fondant strings and the sheep, scissors and needles were made out of gum paste. Between set up, execution and clean up, it must have taken me about 10 hrs to complete it, but it was a lot of fun. My friend and the rest of her small knitting club were very surprised and love it.
A couple of weeks ago I knit a st st square out of yellow nylon twine. It was for a friend who was going to make a mold for fondant for a cake.
She went with a different idea and sent me a picture of the finished project. It's so wonderful I thought I'd share it with you.
I have no idea how long it took her to finish it, but it must be wa-a-a-ay beyond "a lot".
Check out the details:
The blanket even has hash marks to simulate stitches.
Who wouldn't love a sheep that looked like that?
The sheep even knitted a v-neck sweater.
Don't you wish your sheep could do that?
