Let's start w/the naughtiness, because it's the most fun! I present to you Felt Up from Naughty Needles:

Done in 3 strands of cascade 220 and size 13 needles. It took 2 days, and really does an effective job of waist-cinching! (And is really hard to get into by yourself....)

Next, the winter 06/07 cover piece, the voge shrug that is impossible to wear, even though it was immensely fun to knit:

This has since been ripped out and the yarn will be turned into something else. It's Ultra Alpaca, and was on US 7 needles (I knit really loose.)


And last but not least, Lace!:

It's the Bobble lace flowers shawl from Heartstrings (knit as a shop sample or I would not have knit this pattern. I hate bobbles.) Done in Ethereal from elegant yarns, and only 1 ball! (1,000yds) on US 2 addi lace needles. I heart the addi lace needles.

I love the colors you chose for each piece!
The corset is insanely beautiful.
And your lace shawl is very nice. I have yet to commit to my first bit of lacework (with actual laceweight or fingering-weight yarn). I admire your work.
And that capecho...I have the magazine, and used to be enamored with it, but I've seen and heard too many horrible things. I can understand frogging it. Not that you didn't do a great job, but I've only seen it look right maybe once or twice.

Again, beautiful things! Congratulations!

I bow down in admiration and respect of your skills!   Smiley  Amazing!  That Vogue Shrug looks really complicated and very impressive!  Why is it impossible to wear?  The lace wrap is delightful and the "Naughtiness" is charming!  Will you wear Naughtiness as an under or outer garmet?  I'd be tempted to wear it as an outer for all to see!

Great job on all the FO's!  Are the photos taken in a yarn shop, or is that your craft room?  I'm envious of your workspace Smiley

I love the green tube top-- I might have to make something like that!

I like how you laced it from the bottom up instead of the top down like people normally lace tops.  It's surprising and different!

Wow!!! Love them all!!! You sure have skills!! I haven't seen the book Naughty Needles yet... or if I did - I sure did not see that corset. My daughter would beg me for it if she knew it was out there... how tough is it to do? I mean - you are a Knitting Queen... I am just a jester!

You can never change the past. But by the gace of God, you can win the future. So, remember those things which will help you forward, but forget about the things which will only hold you back.

your knitting really impresses me. when i read that you ripped out the vogue shrug, i nearly died. if i had made it and it didn't look good, i would have draped it over a chair or something, just for people to see! haha!
love the lace....

Eeeeee!  Love the corset!

Kinda cool, the big bow/ribbon reminds me of what an anime peep might wear.   Grin

Everything is wonderful, especially that corset!

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.
