“Slip It In” Vibrator Cozy

September 21, 2007 at 2:45 am (black flag, vibrator cozy)

Okay, I warned everyone. I said, “if I ever talk about making a ‘slip it in’ vibator cozy, don’t let me.” Upon warning my friend Hobart (who I attend our weekly Stitch n Bitch with), he suggested, “what if you made it look like the nun?” I think it’s fair to say that that was something I simply had to do.

And so.

And so the whole world can see what kind of a vibrator I have:

Also, this has nothing to do with knitting but if you guys are into reading about punk/hardcore history at all and thought American Hardcore didn’t measure up, I suggest picking up Dance of Days, I just picked it up and so far it’s really extensive and seems promising.

Descendents coffee cozy

September 13, 2007 at 12:13 am (coffee cozy, descendents)

Graphing out Milo was the first self-made intarsia pattern I had ever done, but I never really did anything with him. Next to my apartment I get really good coffee for 50 cents, so I’ve been drinking a lot of it. I figured a knitted coffee cozy would help resolve the waste problem involving those little cardboard sleeves you put around your coffee because it’s too hot. My boyfriend (who is kind of a know-it-all yet has never held knitting needles in his life) tried to shoot me down and tell me a knitted coffee cozy would be nonfunctional and would still be hot. Guess what, it worked; but those of you who knit probably knew it would.

(aww I love this logo.)

And the cozy:

Action shot! Three different angles! Hoohah:

Bad Brains capitol pin cushion

September 6, 2007 at 2:19 am (bad brains, pin cushion)

I just got back from a backyard show in our friends’ apartment across the street. One of the bands did both a Gorilla Biscuits and Bad Brains cover, which reminded me to post this quick project that took me all of maybe 2 hours:

It’s a pin cushion! (See the pins?) Modelled after the capitol building on the cover of the self titled Bad Brains record (and arguably one of the best releases of the 80s.. or ever..)

(By the way, the cover was “Pay to Cum,” introduced by “this is a cover.. you can sing along if you want but no one understands the words anyway.” Fair enough.)

Oh, if you have cats, don’t keep this (or any pin cushion) in reach of them. They look all cute next to your projects, but then they try to eat your pins. For those who aren’t all that savvy on pet care, that’s bad.
