yarn wedding cake topper

I had the somewhat-bright idea yesterday that despite my glacial progress on the knitting/spinning front, I could still keep this blog somewhat fresh by posting random photos.

Here’s a snap of my wedding cake:

wedding cake, with yarn

Okay, I lied.  It’s actually one of my, er, three wedding cakes. What can I say? My brother-in-law is a pastry chef! I knew I was in for something special, but he really outdid himself for my wedding. Thanks, Ben!

The ball of yarn is constructed from a large ball of chocolate ganache (about the size of a softball) which was then wrapped with marzipan “yarn” and then garnished with a pair of vintage knitting needles. Mr. StringFactory and I devoured the whole thing within a week of our wedding. We were not sorry.

Later this week, I’ll post a photo of my favoritest FO ever.  It predates both my ravelry account and this blog, but I have a picture and it’s pretty fabulous.
