This post is reminding me of that silly "Thong Song" that was so popular about 8 years ago. I can't remember who sang it, but here's why it's in my head.
Pattern: Frecklegirl Thong, found on, where else, Ravelry.
Yarn: Less than 1 skein of Elann Lara in black. This was leftover from my now completed Orangina (sorry, I don't have pics of that just yet. It need a washing first). The ribbon I found at Joann Fabrics for $0.98/yard.
Verdict: Fun! This is for one of my best friend's bridal shower next month. I am a bridesmaid and couldn't resist the opportunity to make something small and sexy for her to open up in front of her guests. I'll probably go get her something else to go with it (no knitted bras here) in addition to her real gift (from her registry). This actually turned out nicer than I thought and has more coverage than the average thong!
Here's a shot of the back.
What the heck else have I been up to? Well, I've been working on the Clover Lace Cardigan. I've got the back, one front and 1/2 of the other front completed. I've had to rip and redo a little bit because I'm being particular about how the decreases work, but this has been a pretty quick moving pattern. I knit one entire front last Sunday while watching the 7 1/2 hour Wimbledon men's final. What a great match that was.
Believe it or not, I've been thinking a lot about fall knitting. Already? I know, I know. After seeing some wonderful FO's pop up around, I've been inspired. I'm excited to start Wicked (yes, I am the last knitter to actually make this pattern) with some stashed red tweed, and after seeing Jatta's beautiful Henley Perfected, I know what my stashed Baby Cashmerino will become. I hadn't even given this pattern a second look, but after seeing her cardiganized version, I want one!!
Anyone else thinking about fall knits yet?
