We put them on the table with all the real cakes on coffee morning day and they blended in perfectly, although my choice of yarn colours may be a bit questionable with regards to realism... The shape is made from three identical pieces made in the round, with the top and bottom sections being stuffed lightly. I used DK wool with a 3.5mm hook and they measured about 1.5 inches wide, so they fit nicely into an actual macaron box that A brought back from Betty's in York last week. I was trying to be all secretive when I asked to borrow it, but the first reason she came up with was that I was going to knit macarons. At least I could reply truthfully that it wasn't the case... Crochet and knitting are wildly different, ya know. Apparently I'm not as good at being sneaky as I'd like to think.
This week's book is still Northanger Abbey. I'm hoping it'll be finished today since I'm picking up a library order tonight... It's fantastic but I seem to fall asleep before I can get very far through it each day. Story of my life.
