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!)

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / SICK VS. MOMMY (seamless saddle shoulder sweater) on: May 07, 2009 10:23:47 AM
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

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / SHORT SHORTS! =) on: April 09, 2009 02:15:47 PM
I'm a big fan of short shorts to show off my gams when I'm lounging around my apartment.  Wink
So, I decided to make some, using the leftover yarn from my seamless raglan #2 project.

(Because I was using leftover yarn and because this is a test pair, the color design is arbitrary and not thought out.)

I used Harrisville Design's New England Highland. 100% Pure Wool.
Colors: Azure, Plum, and High Pearl

I've already begun another pair that I hope to share with you all soon!


Excuse the bedhead.
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / SEAMLESS RAGLAN SWEATER #2 on: March 29, 2009 04:09:07 PM
Hello all!

Instead of going out on Friday night, I decided to stay in and finish up my newest seamless raglan, which I'm very happy with.

Here are the results:

I used the same yarn as the other sweater.
Colors used here are: High Pearl, Azure, Marigold, Magenta, and Plum. (Not my words, the yarn company's---I don't use fancy names for colors.)

Started March 16th, completed March 27th.

I think that's about all I have to say about that... So, that's it.

I hope you like it as much as I do. =)

7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / SEAMLESS SWEATER on: March 20, 2009 05:48:25 AM
I was in bed (really) sick all last week, so I had plenty of time to finish this raglan sweater.
I was particularly attracted to this pattern because it required no sewing (only grafting at the pits). I was able to knit it completely in the round.

I'm a fan of raglans.
And I'm also a fan of sleeves that a bit too short, so I made sure to make mine that way.

Colors: High Pearl, Marigold.
It's 100% wool, New England Highland, made by current favorite yarn company, Harrisville Designs.
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / PENIS COZY PATTERN? on: November 10, 2008 05:22:27 PM
I want to knit a penis cozy because it's starting to get chilly in NYC now.
I've heard about them a lot the past couple years, but I can't seem to find a pattern online.

Anybody want to help a fellow knitter out?
I'll love you forever.  Smiley

10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / More Reconstruction! ribcageivyLITTLEHEARTS on: September 19, 2006 10:54:24 AM

What's better than sewing/making a new shirt first thing in the morning, while wearing yr underwear!?

This is a used shirt I had, which I turned inside out. And the hearts are cut from another old shirt, which I now use for neon green fabric.

Yes? No? Maybe?  Wink
