1  Tree Jacket from Zephyr Style in Knitting: Completed Projects by castonacupcake on: January 08, 2008 04:43:15 PM
I knit this over winter break from school.  It was a great way to relax and also have a goal at the same time.

Somehow I managed to mess up the garter stitch in a few places, but I think I'm the only one who will notice!  I love it.

Thanks for looking!

2  Finished Minimalist in Knitting: Completed Projects by castonacupcake on: November 15, 2007 05:48:42 PM
I finished my Minimalist Cardigan a few weeks ago and I love it.  It is now my go-to cardigan.

I used 3 + a little of a 4th skein of Cascade 220 Heathers in Garnet.  It took me about six weeks to finish, but I'm in the middle of my first semester of law school, so it took me a little longer than it would probably take a normal person with a normal life!

Somehow the sleeve-tops came out bigger than the sleeve-holes on the body, but I managed to seam them into puffed sleeves, and I really like the look.

And... more on my blog... http://castonacupcake.blogspot.com/

3  Re: Ribbed Lace Bolero *with pattern!* in Knitting: Completed Projects by castonacupcake on: November 02, 2007 07:04:28 PM
I finished this for a wedding in September.

The yarn was Lion Brand Microspun because I'm a poor student... and I can't find cotton ease anywhere!

(My boyfriend took the pictures in the Botanical Gardens where the wedding was held...)

4  An Addition to the Lelah Craze in Knitting: Completed Projects by castonacupcake on: July 30, 2007 10:12:33 AM
Here's my contribution to the Lelah craze.

I used Knit Picks Shine Sport in Grass.  I also (clearly) added straps.

I LOVED this pattern and I love how my shirt came out.  I never thought I'd actually make or wear a knitted tank top.

5  Cupcakes: birthday & pin cushion in Knitting: Completed Projects by castonacupcake on: June 16, 2007 09:15:03 PM
Once I found the pattern for knitted cupcakes, I couldn't stop making them!  I;ve made at least a half dozen, including these two:

I found the pattern right around Valentine's Day and I made these for Valentines for a lot of my friends, and then I kept one, and then I made one for a friend's birthday.  That one had an added i-cord candle.

Check out the blog for more things knitting & cupcakes.

6  Anastasias in Knitting: Completed Projects by castonacupcake on: June 10, 2007 09:48:37 PM
I made a pair of Anastasias a few weeks ago, out of delicate alpaca spring green fingering weight (from Frog Tree).  I love them even though since it's summer I'm not wearing socks anymore, and even though I did my ssk's wrong on the second sock.  They're still super cute!  Apologies for the crappy photos- the camera is broken.

This second picture shows the color better.

7  "Ice Princess" Daisy Stitch Headband in Knitting: Completed Projects by castonacupcake on: March 05, 2007 06:12:15 PM
This is my first post to crafster, but certainly not my first FO.  

"Ice Princess"
(my own pattern!)
Note: While the construction is my pattern, the stitch is the Daisy Stitch from The Pattern Library's Traditional Knitting book.

Close up of the stitch:

Yarn: Lion Brand Jiffy in White (or any mohair-esque worsted weight)
Needles: 4mm (I used Inox 4mm straight aluminum)

CO 17 stitches (I used the standard cast on, a provisional cast on would probably work better)
Rows 1 & 3: (RS) Knit
Row 2: K1 *p3tog, yo, purl same 3 sts tog again, k1; rep from *
Row 4: K1, p1, k1 *p3tog, yo, purl same 3 sts tog again, k1; rep from *
Repeat rows 1 - 4 until headband is 2" shorter than the width of your head.
Decreases, row 1: (RS) K1, ssk, k11, k2tog, k1
Row 2 and all WS rows: K1, p to last st, k1
Row 3: K1, ssk, k9, k2tog, k1
Row 5: K1, ssk, k7, k2tog, k1
Row 7: K1, ssk, k5, k2tog, k1
Row 9: K1, ssk, k3, k2tog, k1
Row 11, create buttonhole: K1, ssk four times, k2tog, k1
Row 12: K1, p1, add two stitches, p1, k1
Row 13: K1, ssk, k2tog, k1
Row 14: purl all stitches
Row 15: K1, k2tog, k1
Row 16: purl all stitches
Row 17: cast off stitches
Decreases, beginning edge:  Pick up 17 stitches from the cast on edge (or take out your provisional cast on and use those stitches).  Follow pattern above for decreases, omitting buttonhole.

Sew on button of your choosing on the decreased end without the buttonhole.
