Maybe we stick to the birthday theme. In a very mean way, because who can blow out a knit candle? Well, right now you CAN'T blow out anything over a cake (unless you want it all for yourself, you know.) that others are supposed to eat. Still, it's very pretty and reusable. But you'll get very busy, if you want to make enough candles for a "real" grown-up. The pattern is this one.
