fos and a 'survey'

let's start out with some knitting content, shall we? these are for a secret pal, but she's not the punk knitting type, so i don't think she'll see them here. EVERYONE should make a pair of these. or several. they're PERFECT for leftover sock yarn, knit up amazingly quickly, and look freakin' awesome.



it's just a stockinette rectangle, with a little bit of ribbing on one end for a hem and lots of ribbing on the other end for a cuff, sewn up the side with a gap for your thumb. GO MAKE SOME! :-D you can probably figure out the pattern yourself, but i got the idea here.

non-knitting but still crafty... i bought some SERIOUSLY awesome rolling stones 'tattoo you' knee socks, only to get them out of the package and realize they had NO STRETCH in the patterned area. therefore, i could only get the cuff halfway up my calf. not too useful as a sock! so, snip snip and voila! meet my rolling stones 'tattoo you' armwarmers. THEY'RE SO COMFY! as a bonus, you can see part of my pixiegirl pin-up tattoo. :-P



and now, a question for all of the punk sparkly-loving ladies in the house. i'm in the process of making punk stitch markers... black with hot pink, red, white, purple or neon green... plus charms in skulls, keys, handcuffs, and anything else like that i can find. i'm pretty sure there'll be some interest here. i'm wondering, though, if anyone would be interested in bracelets and/or earrings in the same style? metal links, beads, and fun metal punk charms. if people are interested, i'll start adding some to my store! they're so fun to make...

Cute wrist warmer. Love the stones sock/armwarmer too.

Sure, the punk skulls stitch markers and matching jewelry sounds nice. Love jewelry, myself.

Of course the earrings would be a great addition to your store. That'll be cool!

I think I like them even better as arm warmers! especially with your cute pin up girl peeking out! (I LOVE pin up girls, my 15 year old just laughs whenever i send her to school with lunch money checks cause they have pin up retro girls on them :) ) I love the idea of skull stitch markers and jewelry too!

Hey, I wanted to order (pre oreder) a skein of yarn from you but could not locate your email.

Was curious on the new colors you have coming out too!
