Punk jumper?

Hello! I'm new, 16 and from Bristol in England (dunno where most people are from here)

I want a punk jumper, one of those big holey things that's barely held together and is waaaaay too large for any human being to fit in. If anyone watches The Mighty Boosh, I'm looking for one like the one Vince was wearing in the episode where he's a punk.

How do I go about making such a thing? I've only ever made scarves before haha

Help please please pleaaase

Is it a sock? Is it a cozy?

Allo everyone!

I recently came into possession of a nano, very exciting indeed! While I was at the store looking for accessories, I noticed that you could buy knit socks for i-pods.

This got me thinking.

So, with a little search or two through Ravelry, I found that someone had made an "endpaper mitts" patterned cozy for her i-pod. I quickly found some grey and hot pink left over wools, and made one of my own! The pink is a bit brighter than it shows up. I really should pull out my good camera sometime soon.

Ravelry Group

There is no Punk Rock Knitter Ravelry group. Would anyone want to join if I started one?

I made awesome pillows!

This was my first thing to knit that wasn't a scarf and I am super excited. They turned out great!

How can you dress up your water bottle?

With this: a water bottle carrier that looks like a bear! So cute!

bear bottle

The pattern is from Mr. Funky's Super Crochet Wonderful called On-the-go water bottle carrier. When I saw those googley eyes I couldn't resist. It was crocheted with 1 skein of Sugar N Cream and some white yarn from my stash on a size G hook. It was pretty easy and quick. It still needs buttons on back to enclose the bottle in, but its complete enough to show off. I should have bought eyes and a nose thats a bit bigger but I didn't realize that until I got everything home and was finishing it up. It still looks good though. I made it for my brother's girlfriend for Christmas and hope he doesn't spill the beans about it to her about it. Then I would have to keep it for myself, which wouldn't be bad. Hey, can't let a good creation go to waste, right?

You Spin Me.

i just finished the RPM socks from I used all the methods I've never tried before, to make it more exciting (i.e. short-row heel, and the pointed toe). I ended up frogging the heel like, 7 times, but in the long run it was totally worth it.

i actually had enough yarn to make the a lil' longer but i was afraid of coming up short.

Piggy Tail/ Dr SEuss Hat

I so hate bugging you all, but a while back i had printed out a pattern for a hat, it had holes for piggy tails but they were more on the top/side of the head and looked like smallish tube holes, like something from dr seuss or the sea. I have misplaced it and so had the perfect friend in mind to print it any of you know which hat i am thinking of? I searched old posts here and have been surfing looking for it but.....sigh, this one was perfect. All i have found just have plain holes on the lower side. Thanks if you can help! (i had swore it was knitty but no luck!)

Speaking of knitting and tattoos

Speaking of knitting and tattoos. This one is my first and is now 2 weeks old. However, this photo was taken right after I got home from having it done and cleaned it up.

Tattoos and Knitting

Penguin Tat 002Ha, I never got pictures of it the first time around, so I decided to do a second take. :) Remember, I knit while getting tattooed, it keeps my mind off of the pain. Really, I have a low tolerance for pain and I know if I'm knitting and focusing on the simple in, around, out, off motions I will be fine. Nik loves it because he says it keeps me still, which makes it easier for him to do his job. Also, with my last tattoo he said that he has seen full grown men complain more than I do! Which made me feel rockin. Okay...I lied. Here are all of the pictures. Trust me, this isn't even half of them. Kyle took LOADS of progress shots. You can literally see the tattoo develop. One of my favorite shots was an accidental one, he meant to photograph the tattoo, and instead got Nik's hands in there. lol But I think that is kinda cool. Oh, those are the Nermal socks I am working on there.
