KAL Nominations

These are my nominations for our first Punk Rock KAL:

Biker Boy from Son of Stich n' Bitch

This pattern is available in Debbie Stoller's new book, Son of Stitch n' Bitch. I really like this and am planning on making it for my husband anyway.

The only two downsides I can see to this as a KAL pattern, is that:

1) It's a big item (as opposed to knucks)

2) You'd have to buy the book (or find it in a local library) to get the pattern. Right now, it's going for $10.85 on (which isn't too shabby considering retail is $15.95)

Skull Socks of Fury from Hello Yarn

I dig these. I'd do them in black and pink. You, of course, could do them in whatever color you want. This pattern is also FREE. Hooray for free!.

i like the mens sweater. I have been wanting to make a sweater for hubby. And skulls...gotta have them!

I love the men's sweater! I also think the socks are way cool-if we do a KAL of those I will have to force myself to break my sock-phobia!

Much as I do love the Biker Boy pattern (I too have Son of Stitch n' Bitch), I can honestly say I cannot see my hubby in this sweater ONLY because of the fitted-ness of the sleeves. Therefore, I am planning on using this pattern, or more specifically, the skull pattern from the patch, but will be using it on a different sweater pattern.

And for a Christmas-y feel, I recently did the skull socks of fury for my niece in red and green. I was an idiot, and failed to get a picture, but have asked my sister to do so for me.
