Free Valentine’s Day Pattern: Edible Knitted Thong
by Dawn Payne

Valentine's Day Knitting

Licorice Knitted Valentine's Day Thong

This Valentine’s Day, adult entertainment star Dawn Payne presents her newest excursion into the realm of all-things-naughty via her pattern entitled “302 Calories” (a.k.a. an Edible Knitted Red Lace Thong).

Materials? One set of chopsticks, and a couple packs of Red Lace licorice.

Dawn Payne, my friend, you are a laugh riot. And I quote, “Always wanted a pair of edible panties?.. Cast on at the beginning of a movie, and the panties will be ready for dessert after the credits!”

Giant VaSquid Complete!

Giant VaSquid with Removeable Eyes for Easy-Access Handling

I’ve finished my squid-cozy for the 2010 Vaksa Cozy Contest. It has been knitted and felted in 100% pure Merino wool. The legs and tentacles are lined with purple flannel underbellies, then stuffed, and I have wet-felted its removable eye from raw roving fibers. That said, my fish probably want their fish tank accessories back…

Speaking of Magda Sayeg, she’s come out with new designs to customize your iPhone via Uncommon. I, too, have been planning to upload a few of my own designs to the site now that the holidays are over. My hope is that the plastic printed exterior acts as a sort of meta-spinhandspun pun [read: a spinhand-pun!?]…


You can find her full selection of ipod cases here.
