Divine Company

... Divine Cupcakes

Peanut Butter Cup by The Divine Cupcake

Okay, okay so it's been 6 months since I've last posted. Excuses? None. Plenty of things have happened since then.

First? We've moved from Allen Brothers to The Divine Cupcake. They opened their shop in March and they now reserve all Wednesday nights as knitting and crafty night!
How cool is that? We, Knotty Knitters only attend every other Wednesday but it's great that there's another place in Eugene to go and be inspired to create art. Plus, their cupcakes are amaaaaaaazing. It's hard to think of anything better than yarn, friends and cupcakes.

Also, babies are being born left and right!! Apparently, Knitting is Knotty is pretty darn fertile. Shelsea had her second boy in March, Melinda just had her second girl a week ago. Kelsey is due next month and Morgan is expecting in August. Maybe it has to do with the fact that The Divine Cupcake is co-owned by Emily Downing-Moore, a midwife. Okay, what's better than yarn, friends, cupcakes and babies??

Last April, I, Mary and Spring participated in an event we call Yarn Bombing. We created knitted pieces specifically for public art. It was so much fun. You can view the photos on our flickr page. We have another bombing being planned, so stay tuned for that.

Again, you can find all sort of craftiness every Wednesday evening at The Divine Cupcake. Our next meeting will land on June 30th. Come!
