I Will Resist

Oh my. The stripping on this sweater is just hot. No, I’m not looking at the guy who is wearing it. You can’t make me look into those deep hungry eyes. I won’t be tempted by that wisp of hair that plays in front of his face. I will not be seduced by the arm muscles that the sweater just can’t hide. No! I will resist. I will resist!

Okay, maybe just one little peek. . .

In Good Hands

Wanted to let you know that I am taking a week off to spend some quality time with my Boy Toy. But don’t worry, I won’t leave you alone. I wanted to make sure that you would be in good hands while I’m gone. So, I have scheduled a week of eye candy for your pleasure. Sexy guys wearing sexy knits- what could be better. If I have time I may just pop my head in to say hi.

So, enjoy your week and I’ll see you again shortly.

Here’s a preview of what to expect. Enjoy!

Grey Temptation

Dressing Humphrey Bogart

The Sanguine Gryphon Fall 2011 pattern collection was released this week on their website. This season’s collection is presented with a Film Noir theme!

Named after some of the famous faces of the screen, the collection of patterns show off the dark seductive intrigue that is Film Noir.

I am honored that one of my sock designs was included in this wonderful collection. The socks are called Humphrey Bogart, the Hard-Boiled. Knitted in my signature two-needle sock design, these socks are perfect for those wanting to add a bit more flair to their man’s wardrobe.  If Humphrey Bogart was still alive, I’m sure he would approve of the design.

A big “Thank You” to Jamie and the rest of the Sanguine Gryphon clan for al the work you put into making this collection.

Knitting and Crochet Blog Week 2011: Sexy Men I Want To Get My Socks On

We all have those fantasies about famous people we would love to meet, date, marry, molest back stage at an award show, tie up to your bed and. . . well, you get what I mean.

I also have the above mentioned fantasies as well as a sort of quirky one. Since I am happily married and know that I have about a snowball chance in hell of meeting, let alone dating anyone famous, I instead like to fantasize about knitting socks for my favorite hotties. So, here is a list of my top six sexy men I would love to get my hands. . .wait, I mean, socks on.

6. Johnny Depp

Admit it ladies. When you are knitting something for your man, don’t you secretly wish you were knitting it for Johnny Depp? I know I do!

5. Robert Pattinson

Because ten million screaming teenage girls can’t be wrong.  I loved him back before he became a vampire with emotional issues.

4. Josh Groban

Yes, he has the voice of an angel. And I would be more than happy to knit the devil out of some socks for him.

3. Jamie Cullum

Well, you know what they say about short british guys with big feet, right? (I meant that they can sing really well. Get your mind out the gutter, you hussy!) However, he does wear his pants really loose and his wife always has a smile on her face, so hummm. . . .

2. John Mayer

Yes, John Mayer, the bad boy himself. There are some naughty lessons I could teach him with my knitting needles. A night with me and I’ll have him cashmere-whipped!

1. Jackson Rathbone

Jackson Rathbone is give-me-a-straw-’cause-i-just-want-to-suck-him-up damn sexy! Does there  need to be any other reason to knit him some socks?
