Super Cupcake & Knitting Notions

© 2012 Heidi Chouinard

I am currently working on this Super Cupcake Slouchy Hat for myself for the coming winter. I am pretty picky when it comes to hats. Since It is going to be my first winter living in Canada, I am going to need a casual winter hat that can be worn most of the winter. I wanted a hat that could for the most part be worn with anything and keep my head and ears warm at the same time, and of course be stylish. I am really liking the way it is knitting up. For the body of the hat it is 'the fishermans rib' stitch, which I am enjoying, and love the look of. The yarn I am using is Spud & Chloe Sweater, worsted superwash, color: Beluga.

I got this super cute pouch as a gift last Christmas, and have been using it to store my knitting notions in. I love it! I have just enough room for my little scissors, needles for blocking, measuring tape, thread, markers, Chibi tapestry needles, cable needles, a button, a couple of stitch holders, and some scrap yarn. It is also the perfect little size to fit into my knitting bag/purse for on-the-go. 

What knitting notions do you have, and what do you store them in? Please share! :)


  1. Where is the bag from? It is super adorable and looks to be perfect size for knitting notions!

    1. Hi! :) I am not exactly sure, because it was a gift. I do have a good hunch though that it is from Anthropologie. Thank you by the way! I do love it.
