Ok, I just had a wacky idea. I am currently knitting two items right now. I am struggling with one b/c it keeps ending up way to big for my little head and I am insanely enjoying the one I just started last night. I started Fetching last night and it is going beautifully. So far I haven't poked an eye out with the dpns. Calorimetry on the other hand is not going well. It's sooooo simple!! I should not be having these problems with it. anyway, I am thinking about adding the cables from Fetching to Calorimetry to spice it up a bit and maybe tighten the gauge a little. I think it should work since Calorimetry uses a k2p2 rib and Fetching's cables are 4 wide. I should be able to sneak a cable in somewhere and then they will match! I probably shouldn't be changing patterns since I just learned how to knit, but I don't think I can help myself. I love cables!

As for the cupcakes, no one seemed to understand how to unwrap them. I did not think that would be the issue with them! They turned out very brownie-like which I was not expecting. The cupcake kind of overwhelmed the peanuts and caramel. The frosting was light and fluffy. I think I had about the right amount on there (I hate too much frosting), but I do think it needed to be more vanilla-y. I have another cupcake recipe ready to try, so maybe I will get to them Tuesday night when Josh is working.

This cold is still kicking my butt after a week! The cold has moved from my sinuses to my chest. I woke myself up last night because I was wheezing so loudly. i am glad to be rid of the sinus headache I have had for the last two days

You do know that they actually make cupcake wrappers in that size, and you don't have to put them in wrappers that you have to rip. Besides, once I got the hang of it, they were easy to pop out.

You're right about the overwhelming factor. I was so overwhelmed by the chocolate, I couldn't figure out how the filling tasted, and I had to go for a texture comment.
