Knit amigurumi condoms!

I do sometimes make things that impress even myself.

Knit condoms!

For novelty purposes only. Not to be used as a contraceptive. Will not prevent transmission of STDs. But you probably figured that out yourself, right?

I knit these over a year ago, and I am still convinced they are the greatest things I've ever made. They are approximately the right size, if a little short when unrolled. I will make more one day, perhaps to sell in clever adult toy boutiques if anyone wants any.


Pattern: self-created pattern
Needles: size 0 dpns
Yarn: Dalegarn Stork (left), Knit Picks Simple Stripes (right)
Size: *snicker*
Finished: 2006


Look for the pattern in a future post, though anyone who's knit a hat in the round will likely figure this out just from the picture.

OH MY GOODNESS. These are so cool. You should definitely knit up a whole bunch and get them into adult toy boutiques (and elsewhere). They would give new meaning to the word, "stocking stuffer"!!

I just saw something like this in a store here. They were soft-boiled egg warmers.
