You guys are funny! I've got lots of alternative aspects to me, but I don't think any of them are the kind you're thinking of.

And I'll *still* cry when watching the scene where Bambi's mother dies. Why, why is she not springing out of the forest, too?

But I (with most others here, I'm sure), are always interested in all kinds of knitting (did you see my thong post- admittedly the exact opposite of what you seem to be describing), so do post some of your items.

Thanks for the reference to anticraft...I hadn't seen that one before. I found one punk knitting website before that I loved...they give away skull knitting needles if you send in pictures of skull knitting projects. They rock. I am mildly obsessed with skulls right now.

I ride a sportbike and like alot of "non-girly" stuff. I also like to knit, sew, decorate my house and cook. I'm an even mix of non conforming and stereotypical married woman. I do what pleases me I guess and don't worry about how it appears to others. If I want to wrench my motorcycle, cuss up a storm doing so and get covered with grease and then go plant flowers or knit up a clog so be it.

I love it! I'm so happy to see such a wide variety of knitters! Don't beat me down for this, but I probably had the stereotypical view of knitting & knitters before I joined this site. I was worried I was getting... old!

So I'm perilously close to 29, a mommy of two little girls that I love dressing, and I try to grow things in dirt. And I am learning knitting.

I also am an enormous, huge baseball fan, have the mouth of a sailor if nobody's listening, and bristle at the thought of being painted into the corner that much of society would like me to be in.

So... nice to meet you all!! (<----Hey!!!! GUY knitting???)

I am a girl cop with a Harley but I love the color pink....

I love the alternative looking knits, but I'm not sure I could use a lot of it...maybe if I'm ever single again, you can bet I'll pick up Naughty Knits and make something from there!!!!!

I'm a mod, not a rocker.

but I have a Thing for voodoo dolls, so I've been coveting the one on that site for a while... right after the socks and the sweaters, right.
and I love anything holey, and eyeballs. does that count?

ask him if he thinks he's punk as f^&%. that should settle him down.
