Pretty cool! I could see the looks you would get when you answer your phone. :thinking: I know I would have to turn the pocket out a bit or else a big bruise would occur after walking. I am just not that thin anymore. Definitely knotty!

YAYYYYYYYYYY KNITASHA!!!! She LOOKS like a Knitasha, dont you think? Mysterious and SULTRY.

Where's my prize?!?!?! Am I eligible for a prize, seeing that I started the contest? Didnt think so....

Amy, that story is HYSTERICAL. :rofling: YO. He KNOWS some people. 8-)

LOVE LOVE LOVE the garter pocket! That lacey top is VERY cool!

I had to look twice to see that was a cell phone...I thought it was a FLASK. (Amy's tippin 'em back again!! :rollseyes: ) Yet another use, maybe??

Of course, KellyK, I almost forgot!....

KellyK, I hereby declare you the winner of the officially unofficial Kname-that-Manequin contest! Congratulations! Here's your prize!

You get a cheerleading trophy, because you're the captain of the KH Cheerleading team.

Three cheers for KellyK!

Christine, thanks. Knotty indeed!

I guess it's sort of hard to tell the exact placement of the cell phone. It's not directly between the thighs. It's closer to the front of the thigh. Basically, as far front as you can wear it without it showing under your skirt. It has to be towards the front, or you'll rub against it as you walk, no matter how skinny you are! :thinking: Hmmm, maybe some of us have more room here than others. Oh well, you can still put some cash and your ID there, if you were so daring as to use such a pocket!

I should get a closer-up photo of the lacework. It's a really pretty vintage leaf pattern.

Beside being highly knotty (I say Amy wins this month's contest), I think that garter is the hands down most original and creative knitted item I have ever seen. And almost practical...

Congratulations, KellyK, on naming Knitasha! I predict that by the end of the year, Knitasha will have her own photo gallery of items Amy has knit up.

:sunny: THANKS, AIMOLA!!! :sunny:

Uh-oh. ..Now I have to come up with another acceptance speech.

:o
I cannot accept this Knitasha-Naming Award alone. For, without all of you, my kniitng friends, my creativity might remain uninspired! I might have suggested "Sue" or "Mary"! So, behalf of all KH.com members, I accept this golden cheerleader....an icon of our collective creative effort!
Hi Mom!

Amy! I love the sexy garter pocket - very cool! It's just the sort of thing I would expect to see on knitty.com or in the Stitch n Bitch books. Very creative!
