Hi, my name is jess, and I am a knitaholic
I have no fewer than 3 projects on the needles already, and another just needing blocking and buttons, so I need more projects like a hole in my head (and I have a few of those already). But I love a challenge, and can't let there be Team Pie without me.
So: one of my recent projects was a Hanukkah gift for the 3WA goddess Sara Astruc, a knitted penis that could be tied onto the forehead. The origins of the Forehead Cock are shrouded in the mysteries of time (AKA jess is old and forgetful). I was joking with Sara that I could knit her a prosthetic forehead cock, which she thought was hilarious. I mentioned this to my husband, who instantly double-dog dared me to knit one.
So, I did. And it is a marvel of knitted engineering, complete with pubic hair and scrotum, involving circular knitting, short rows, i-cord, a sock heel and felting. However, I was in such a hurry to finish it that I neglected to write much of the pattern down. So, in the spirit of taking on a challenge during the Knitting Olympics, and because several people want the pattern, I am going to recreate this wonder AND WRITE DOWN EVERY SINGLE STEP. And then, if I have any more time, I'll make as many children's hats/mittens as I can from my stash for the Dulaan Project.
In the meantime, I can tell you about my current projects:
- a corset top, in purple tussah silk from Artfibers (a birthday gift), just needs reblocking and buttons
- an almost completed multidirectional purse, my own pattern, in Noro Silk Garden, for my sister
- a Mermaid in colourway 5, (kit was another birthday gift)
- and a Mary Poppins scarf in Kidsilk Haze and Douceur et Soie for a friend
