Welcome!

Welcome to the all new Sexy Knitters Club blog! My name is Jeanie and I'll be the host of this blog.

This blog was started as a whim when Heather and I started talking about how many beautiful (and sexy) knitters there are out there in blogland. We thought it would be fun to start a Sexy Knitters Club where any knitter who feels sexy can join. I posted about it on my personal blog and won't repeat the post here, but as you can see we've already got several members. Welcome ladies and spread the word! Here are your buttons. Add them to your side bar and display them proudly!







And for those of you who need a larger button, here's one for you.




So here's how we think this is going to work, although we've never done this before and we truly have NO idea if it's even going to work at all ;-) But what we're hoping for is for this blog to be a members blog, which means that YOU all get to do the blogging. Oh sure, there will be a moderator (probably me) to make sure things don't get out of hand (we know how rowdy some of you knitters can get) and to make sure we don't get TOO sexy. In other words let's not get X-rated here, okay? (I know, I'm such a party pooper.)

We'd like to try to focus on the sexier WIP's on this blog. What do we consider "sexy"? Well, that's probably best answered by asking what do we consider "NOT sexy"? "Not sexy" is (in our opinion) anything that's frumpy, matronly or just plain ugly. So when we say "sexy", we're not necessarily talking about showing a bunch of skin (although that can often be quite sexy) and (as Heather says) body parts. So in short, we're trying to steer away from "slutty sexy" and focus more on "beautiful sexy". Classy, feminine, flirty... just like all those sexy knitters out there! Want some examples of what we consider "sexy"? Here are just a few.

The Honeymoon Cami by Julia Trice



Unnamed by Marnie Maclean



And of course, the Silk Corset Top by Annie Modesitt


Of course, these are just a few of thousands of "sexy" knits out there and we will continue to post more examples in future posts. Of course, we would prefer it if our MEMBERS would do this for us (hint, hint) but just in case they don't, we'll try to fill in the gaps.

Other things to look for on this blog are interesting "sexy knitting" articles, "sexy knitting" knit alongs, a "sexy knitting" FO member gallery, "sexy knitting contests" and even "Sexy Knitters Club T-shirts". Sound good?

So, in order to blog here, you will need to become a member. In order to become a member all you need to do is to email us. We will email you with your blog invitation as soon as possible, but please understand that it may not be immediately, as we have day jobs too ;-) Have questions? Let us know.

Remember, if you FEEL like a sexy knitter than you ARE a sexy knitter!

So, let's start this off with a knit along, shall we? BUT! Let's not start it until AFTER the holidays... agreed? Until then, we want your input regarding what would make a great FIRST "Sexy Knitters Club" knit along. What patterns out there do you sexy knitters like?

Totally AWESOME -- I think I finally got the button right =)

Jessica said...

This is a kick-ass idea. I was just thinking a few minutes ago that if I see another "this ain't your grandma's knitting" kind of reference I was going to stab someone with a dpn. Why can't we shake that connection between grannies and knitting? Sign me up please. I don't know what I'll make yet that's sexy but I'll find something.

Jeanie said...

Jessica -- I need your email address so that I can send you your membership activation instructions. Please send me your email address!

Thanks!

amylovie said...

I agree that we should start after the holidays. Pulling your hair out trying to finish Christmas gifts....not sexy.

knittingnurse said...

I LOVE the un-named top my Marnie MacLean but I can't seem to find how to get it from her site. Is it a for sale pattern, a free pattern, a pattern not yet written???? I would LOVE to make that top. I've done Honeymoon cami (great top BTW) but I would really love that open back little number. Talk about sexy! and saucy! (There where these 3 naughty, bad, saucy nurses. . . .) Sorry about the Grey's anatomy reference there, it's the day after the show and it's still fresh in my mind. Tee hee!

Nancy said...

My votes for the Corset - uh.. since I'm supposed to be working on that anyhow.

Anna said...

The Honey Moon Cami get's my vote! Add me on as a member, I love the idea of this blog/group!

Mom (a.k.a. Mary Ann) said...

If you will allow someone in your group blog-named "Mom", count me in. I am a granny and I knit, but in order to be a mom and a granny, one has to have been sexy at some time. And being a granny doesn't negate sexiness.

Saw your blog mentioned on Jill's "Alohas and Oreos" blog. What an awesome idea. Please count me in!

I want to join!! It looks like you are already nominating ideas for your KAL, but I thought I would still show you a fun site. I saw an pattern that is fairly easy for knitted fishnet stockings at http://www.whiteliesdesign.com. I think that is the right URL. They come in pink, white and black and in all sizes for all sizes of sexy knitters. They have other knitted lingerie on there as well!! Please look at my blog too and let me know if I can join ok? I sent you an email too.

Hi From NJ
This site looks really cool and since I brethe to knit I think it'd be fun to join. It's amazing that I bouught the yarn for the Picovoli this month before coming across this site so I'll be knitting along! I'm using the Debbie Bliss Cathay in Amber. I hope I can finish in time. Is there an official start date? I've never done this before but I'm up for it!

Probably time I joined up. especially since it's the only way I can nominate for the next KAL.
and what? Orangina didn't make it on the nomination list from last time? hmmm

Jeanie said...

Hey Marji -- Can you send me your email address again? Also, Orangina did make the "official" nomination list the last time, but didn't actually get enough votes to win the KAL. It can always get re-nominated for this knit along though...

Marji said...

Jeanie, my email addy is at the bottom of the last comment
I don't have your email, and can't find it anywhere on your blogs, so I can't send it to you, so I wrote it out here.

I just bought this pattern:

I'm a little unsure of my skills in making it (never done lace), and it might make a good knitalong.
