Linky goodness and knitting porn
First of all, here are a few obscure links I found while surfing today (you can tell I have an assignment due because my bookmarks are organized and my room is looking cleaner...) that may come in useful for any beginners out there:

And now, the fun links. I was kicking around a couple of Russian knitting sites. I don't speak Russian, but I think that's actually a bonus, because the Babelfish translation from Russian into English is absolutely freakin' hilarious.

And so are these patterns. Admittedly, this one's crochet, but it's not like you were going to make it anyway (click for patterns):

Don't like those acrylic knitted pants in Interweave Knits? How 'bout these babies?

Hello. Mye name ees Olga. I wear doily, ja?

Another pattern I saw, knit in stocking-stitch with K2P2 ribbing, translated as "Basic pattern: facial smoothness. Elastic: 2Kh2." Facial smoothness. Hahahahaha.

But this, my good friends, is by far the strangest. Titled "the knitted erotic," this link is not for the faint of heart. Yes, it does contain nudity, so all you office-surfers/preteen knitters had better avert your eyes. This definitely tops my previous post of weirdo knitting porn. This will make you laugh. It will also test the very limits of your powers of comprehension and your faith in humanity. Unless you actually do have a knitwear fetish. In that case, enjoy. Russian Knitting Porn awaits you.

Notes: Fixed whatever the hell was wrong with computer. Whee!
March/April archives seem inaccessable. Use these links: March & April a, b, and c. Photos to be fixed next time I'm procrastinating heavily.
