FO: Cupcake

* Final cupcake for Christine

* Shocked and Pawed: I can haz cupcake?

* No, really?

* Omgomgomgomgomgomgomgomg

I haven't crocheted in a while since the Weighted Companion Cube (which technically is still missing her corners.) But I whipped up this cupcake last week for my friend Christine's birthday. She loves cupcakes and I thought this would be the perfect, fat-free gift for her. There are two cupcakes pictured. The first one came out a bit lopsided which bothered me so I made a second, better one which ended up going to her. The first one was filled only with polyfil, while the second one was filled with brown rice in a plastic bag for the bottom and polyfil for the top. I also added a round cardboard bottom for both of them.

Pattern: Cupcake by Ana Paula Rimoli
Yarn: Lily's Sugar 'N Creme - Cream for cupcake bottom, Lion Brand Vanna's Choice - Pink for icing, Lion Brand Micro Spun - Cherry for the cherry :-P
Amount: Minimal. I didn't measure.
Hook: G
Mods: None for the original cupcake. For the 2nd cupcake, I decreased one bottom row and increase one icing row.

In other news, I finished my 2nd Backward Cabled Pullover, but I still need to take FO pics. They'll be up soon, I promise! Also, I'm still working on the Leaf Yoke Top which I started the same day as the Backward Cabled Pullover. I finally buckled down and forced myself to not be scared of short rows the other night, and it's finally coming along. I can now do short rows! :-)

Aww... they look good enough to eat! I'm glad you got over the fear of show rows -- the leaf yoke top will just be knit, knit, knit from now on. It should be a breeze.

I can't wait to see the photos for your new pullover. I bet it's gorgeous!

Great cupcakes. :)
