Ashley Paige Halter

I made my version in Silk City Fibers Peluche & Luna. This is the same top that's on the cover of her Sexy Little Knits book. I adjusted the pattern to make it XS and didn't make the contrast cables. I also picked up the stitches off the bottom of the bodice and knit them in stockinette stitch on #15 needles with the Luna. It was pretty easy. I love it.

New Happy Hooker Crocheted Items

Hi, I just got Debbie Stoller's The Happy Hooker book this week and I really like it. I finished these both in a few days. Cold Shoulder Capelet ( Diakeito yarn. I added 2 shell rows to make it longer and made a crochet button closure instead.)

I made this Garden Scarf from leftover worsted weight wool yarn. It's really cute on and the perfect weight for Los Angeles weather. I made it longer too, 17 flowers instead of 14. I'm pretty tall, so it looks better that way.

Ashley Paige Sexy Little Knits Faux Suede Bikini

I love this. I used Berroco Suede yarn. I had to adjust the bottom to make it fit correctly... like most of the Ashley Paige patterns I've made. Humph!

Sexy Knits

I adore knitting and crocheting gorgeous pieces in beautiful yarns. My favorite knitwear designers at the moment are Ashley Paige, Stephanie Japel (Glampyre Knits) and Mari Lynn Patrick, SweaterBabe & Stitch Diva. My favorite knitting mags are Rebecca, Knit 1 & Interweave Knits. My favorite knitting books are Domiknitrix, Sexy Little Knits & Greetings from the Knit Cafe. I love reading knitting blogs, but I'm not much of a writer, so I'll mainly post pics. Have a great day!

Here's a Noro Tubu knit cap I made for Steve Jones of the Sex Pistols for Christmas. He gave it back to me and asked me to make him a solid black one. Figures...

I just finished this Diakeito Diadomina Shawl from the Rebecca #32 pattern mag. I love it!
