Book Promo Video!

So my dad got me an HD digital camcorder for my bday (yay!) and I have no idea how to use it (boo!) or edit video properly (double boo!), so I’m not there yet on video quality, but I think this video is a fun answer to “HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO MAKE A CUPCAKE SCARF?” plus it shows a nice preview of the projects you can make from my book!

Now I gotta actually go and build a more informative and detailed website for the book. Don’t forget I also have a project in Jenny Harada’s “ME MAKE MONSTER”. Or at least, I think I do. I haven’t seen a copy yet. I’m gonna go put that in my shopping cart, too!

  • chinamommy


    Yep-pre-ordered it the second i could!!! Eeeek, can’t wait- hope I can make it as fast as you did πŸ™‚ hahaha! I love your videos! How do YOU hold the crochet hook? like a pencil?? any feelings on how to hold one or if one is in any way better?? just curious….

    • I have no idea if one is better than the other :P. I don’t think I hold it like a pencil. I hold it more like when someone doens’t use a fork properly :P. I think it’s just how you learn, and what is most comfortable for you. There also seem to be a billion different ways to hold the yarn in your other hand!

  • You look like you are concentrating so hard on your crochet. πŸ™‚

    SO many things I love about this video:
    Your top, your nail polish, how you get too hot to keep the sweater/shrug on….

    I can’t wait to get a copy of this book. Just because I love collecting (not hoarding, mind you) knit and crochet books. AND because it’s by you…you sweet, little cupcake!

    • Aww thank you, Beth!!!!

      I admit I will hoard crochet/knit books that I think are cute-looking and I haven’t really cracked open any of them πŸ˜›

  • hey there! πŸ™‚ loving the super cute vid! and i might just have to buy that song on iTunes…fits your video perfectly. πŸ˜‰

    had a tiny little question that has absolutely NOTHING to do with the video…what nail polish do you use? it is so vibrant and i have the worst trouble finding any that really looks good on and yours always looks bright and cheerful.


    • The nail polish I’m wearing is called Blue Collar by Orly!!! πŸ™‚ I really like it. I just ordered a blue polish by a different brand and we’ll see how that one goes, too!

  • jessica


    So, how long DID it take u to make the scarf?? πŸ™‚ was that all one day or did u just keep putting on the same clothes and hair-do??? Lol. :p

    • kittee


      i wanna know too! i love how your polish matched the hooks! can’t wait for your book, twinkie!

      <3 kittee

    • I did a LOT of pre-crocheting the night before!!! i still have never actually timed it. I take a lot of breaks and do other stuff while making one scarf…. like yelling at the dogs … writing email … eating a snack, etc πŸ™‚

  • euphoria


    you are so stinkin CUTE! Love this video, so can’t wait for the book- congrats on all of you sucess!! Now, i need to find where I can get some Yummy You tees… didn’t see them at Delias :o(

    • I would point you to sites that carry other shirts, but frankly I have no idea yet aside from JapanLa carrying one (a cool one! hehe). Otherwise, we are also working on doing direct orders on the Yummy You website…but it’s still in the works!
