momerath

Tomorrow is HWWLLB's birthday. In celebration, I decided to knit him a cupcake (using the adorable pattern from One Skein). Not to mention there's a toy knit-a-long going on right now (ahem).

Green! I like green. HWWLLB likes green. So I cast on for the cup part using some leftover green cotton. And of course, it needed to be a chocolate cupcake, because chocolate is one of HWWLLB's favorites (though I have to say, the man is not picky about cake).

Do you know what you get when you combine a green cup with a chocolate cake top? Here's a hint:

Look closer...

You get a momerath.

I couldn't help it. I wanted a cupcake, but the momerath just took over. I think its spirit was already inhabiting that fluffy fur yarn. Or maybe it was those mushrooms in the lasagna last night...

Now I think I'll have to make a whole village of them.

P.S.: Can't you just see them here?
