Greetings, Punk Rock Knitters! I’m Sassy Sundry, a friend of Carissa Marie’s. She introduced me to this blog, and I think it’s great. You are all much more talented than I am, but that means that I get to learn from you. Plus, you might introduce me to some kickass music.
Here are a couple of things I’ve been working on.
McDreamy Hat and Scarf Set
This hat and scarf I made for my mother for Christmas in a post-marathon conference and family Thanksgiving haze. The only things I had the strength to do were watch endless episodes of Grey’s Anatomy and knit. The hat is the Sparkle Hat from Stitch ‘N Bitch, minus the sparkles. It’s knit on size 11 circular needles and size 10.5 double-pointed needles (the pattern called for 10, but I seemed to have misplaced those, and these worked fine).The scarf is just a basic stockinette scarf, made on size 13 needles. Both are made with Lamb’s Pride Bulky RPM Pink. Mom really likes pink.
When I got my new cell phone, I was so enamored that I was inspired to make cozies for it. I tried two different styles. The first I knit horizontal and sewed up the bottom and a side. The second I knit lengthwise and sewed up the sides. Both are made on size 8 needles and with Lamb’s Pride Bulky yarn from my stash (Limeade and some wine color, respectively). I currently use the lime-colored cozy for my cellphone and the wine-colored one for my iPod (it fits the little case that it came in and the headphones perfectly).
I hope you like them, and I'm looking forward to reading more of your posts.
