Naughty Girl Stuff

Over at Ravelry I belong to (among 23) a group called Knit Knack. Knit Knack was born on MySpace as an alternative to the Stitch 'N Bitch group that kept getting spammed. Eventually some trolls began spamming Knit Knack something fierce. Skyolim, the founder, disbanded the group. The Knit Knackers from MySpace found their way, one by one, over to Ravelry and the group was reformed. Yippee!! Okay, then, there's the history.

Here's the naughty girl stuff! We recently had our Pasties Exchange. I'd never made pasties before, but figured what the heck? I had so much fun! I made two pairs for my exchange partner cerditovolador. I called them the (De)Flower Me Pasties and the Pirate Booty Call Dress Up Kit. Here are the pics and the patterns. Have at it. Make some pasties!

Pirate Booty Call Dress Up Kit

About 2 - 2 ½ oz worsted weight cotton yarn in colors A and B

NOTE: The bag is not included in the pattern. It is the skullholders pattern from the Stitch 'N Bitch Happy Hooker book with the skull chart from Hello Yarn's Felted Knitting Tote. I simply striped the back side of the bag and worked one row of single crochet around three sides of the front and back to close and worked one round of single crochet around the top of the bag.

These are the ones I received from wildcherry in Alaska. I have always wanted to visit Alaska since I watched Northern Exposure. Marilyn, Dr. Joel's secretary on the show, was an avid knitter. I miss that show. Ahhh, nostalgia... Back to the blog. Here are the pasties received.

both pasties sets

The pasties in the top row, black and red ones, are sparkly and give the illusion of pierced nipples without the pain. The pasties in the bottom row are crocheted. The flower to the right is a hair clip. One of my fellow Knit Knackers thought for a moment that I had three nipples. Not so. I turned one of the flower pasties upside down so the crocheted part could be seen.

Eyelash glue or that tape made for keeping your clothes from gapping.
