The Dangerous Knitting Part
OK, this month's links aren't really about charity. But this is the activist part of Knitting for Change. Sexuality is healthy and we should enjoy our bodies. These articles and sexy knitting projects can help you and your parnter practice!
Sex & the Knitty. Knitty.com's sex issue from summer 2004 will never go out of style. It includes a whole collection of articles and sexy knitting patterns including home made edible undies knit with red licorice! Knitty is currently my favorite knitting magazine, but so far none of my designs have been hip enough to be published there!
White Lies Designs. This site has patterns and kits for all kinds of sexy lingerie including thongs, babydolls, camisoles, and corsets. I just ordered this kit. Designer Joan McGowan-Michael says, "This site is dedicated to the concept that large is just as lovely as little, and there are many styles here that show off your shape while remaining comfortable and flattering."
UPDATE: Joan McGowan-Michael appeared on Knitty Gritty on March 6th. If you missed this episode on "Naughty Knits", it will be repeating on April 27th. Here's a description: Knitwear designer Joan McGowan-Michael, of White Lies Designs, visits host Vickie Howell to demonstrate her wearable knit lingerie. Never before have undergarments been so comfortable! Joan will show us how to knit a lacy camisole, which can be worn as lingerie for the coy and as outerwear for the bold!
The pattern for this camisole, along with tips on knitting lace and finishing are on the Knitty Gritty website.
Sexy Little Knits is a new book by celebrity swimsuit designer Ashley Paige. In the book she has both knit and crochet patterns for flirty, fabulous bikinis, one-piece swimsuits, miniskirts, tank tops, camisoles and more.
A "Knitting is Sexy" thong is for sale on Cafe Press. Wear it if you dare!
Sex Advice From Knitters includes tips on knitting for significant others and answers the questions "Can knitting get me laid?" and "What public places are best for picking up chicks with my knitting?" Oh my! See what Lilly Chin has to say about how knitting can improve your sex life.
Knit Porn. This brand new blog is looking for pictures of sexy knitters and sexy knitting. Regardless of the name "porn", you can be as risque or as modest as you want in your photos, as long as your photo includes knitting and is sexy.
