1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / KNIT BATHING COSTUME (prototype) on: July 23, 2009 09:47:41 AM
Hello again!
This is a bathing costume prototype that Id been working on here and there for almost a month, I think. (Its too hot right now to do any serious knitting.)





It's my own pattern but definitely inspired by those old men's bathing suits.
This is seamless, of course. And wool because it's just a prototype.
The color choice is arbitrary, was just using up any old yarn of similar weight that I had laying around.



This is dead sexy, if I must toot my own horn.
I like to wear it halfway because it feels nice. (Perhaps in the future I'll make a wool bodysuit... We shall see.)

I just dont like the back of this suit. Its too short.



But this is just a prototype. When I make it again, Ill have to fix that.



Anywho, be good and keep it sleazy!

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / RUBBERBAND DRESS + EYELESS SKI MASK on: June 11, 2009 06:59:20 AM
This past weekend I had a booth at the Renegade Craft Fair, where, as an art piece, I displayed this mannequin wearing a dress made from rubberbands and an eyeless ski mask.

See here:










This was originally supposed to be just a tank top, but I saw that when I draped it on the mannequin, it worked much better as a sort of tank dress.

I used size 50 needles and two pounds of rubber bands.



Unfortunately the mask is not made from wool; it's acrylic. (But that will just be our little secret!)

I like the concept of turtlenecks but hate having tight things around my neck.  As such, I'm really digging your sweater construction -- the warmth of a turtleneck without feeling like you're being choked to death.

Yes, exactly!
I also like the slouchy look of the cowl.

When it's really snowy/cold/windy here in NY, it's great to pull up the cowl to cover your face and ears. And if made a bit longer, you could use it as a hood, too!

Thanks for the compliments!
That means a lot. =)

Hello there!
Here is my newest project, "SICK VS. MOMMY". Just finished last night, not yet blocked.










Seamless saddle shoulder sweater with extremely large/long cowl. Just the way I like.

6 (or 7, can't remember) skeins of Harrisville Designs Highland yarn. 100% wool. Oatmeal.
(One of the skeins was lighter than the rest. But it works, I think.)

I forget when I started this project. I feel like Ive been working on it for about a month here and there. But it probably took me 3 weeks to complete. There was a major setback when I realized that a stitch I was originally going to incorporate into the design just didnt work, so I had to unravel a about half of it all.

Overall Im very happy with the outcome of this project!

What Im NOT happy about is that my hands now hurt.

And the high is 70 degrees outside

They look great!  I love the color combo.

And anyway, guys have penises that create "lumps" just like women have breasts that do the same.  It's kind of hard to ignore them; they're THERE.  There's no reason to be upset over it!  If you're just wearing underwear, they're pretty hard to miss.  The human body is wonderful and natural and the photos were tastefully done.

Please keep making these super cute undies and sharing them with us!  They are a great inspiration.


OMG! Yes, I know!
That is exactly what I was thinking when I read that other comment.

It's like... I can't get rid of my package the same way women can't get rid of what's in their bras!

I am sorry that my statement was offensive. I am really NOT complaining. I like to look at a guy's lump just the same as a guy likes to look at a girl's breasts. It is just SOOO distracting. Without going into details. The shorts are great but I had to wipe off the screen because I kept fogging it up!

i love them - i love that they're knitted, and i'm a sucker for booty shorts on boys  Tongue

the only thing i don't like is the little cable up the back (i think that's a cable, anyway... could just be a shadow). it kind of looks like an extension of your buttcrack.  Cheesy


Hehe, yeah, I know.
It's actually the shaping.

Next time I might move the shaping to the sides of the shorts.

they look great, and look great on you, but doesn't the wool itch?

Nope!
And like I said before, the wool only gets softer once it's been blocked.
