Okay, this pic is not good at all - the bikini looked much better on than it does laying flat in this picture, but I wasn't about to model it for you :cool: ! The colorwork was my first attempt and I found it simple and much easier than I thought it would be.

My DH was pleased with my knitting efforts for the week :mrgreen: ... I thought this pattern was pretty straight forward and simple, and the size was dead on IMHO. It's the Queen of Hearts bikini in the Stitch 'n' Bitch book ...

We women know men enough to know your husband loved this Valentine. LOL Things like this always look better on. :-) Nice job.

I just used Lion Brand Wool Ease cause it was on sale when I went shopping - it knit up nicely, I must say. For the hearts I used their Wool Ease White Frost - it was fuzzy and glittery, which added a nice touch ;)

Looks great! You have more guts than me, but you've made me consider making it for next year.

That's adorable. MY hubby would probably fall off the bed if I knitted something like that for him and wore it! LOL

Haha, that's awesome! I love that pattern in the book, though I don't particularly care for the model whom they showed wearing it. :???:

You made it exquisite though, simply fabulous. :D

It turned out perfectly! I love that you used a sparkley-white for the hearts... I'm sure your DH was properly dazzled :teehee:

Thanks for sharing!

I love it! It is great that we knitters can make anything. Lovely work. I am guessing hubby enjoyed it too:)

Ditto to the above. IF I knitted items like yours, my husband would give up his lunch money in order for me to buy more yarn!

Nice job on the Bikini!

Great work! Years 'n' years 'n' years ago, I crocheted a hot pink bikini! I ended up having to cut up some beige panties to line the darn thing! Who knew that crochet would be see thru?

A knitted bikini is much better! Have you worn it in the water yet? Before you do, wear it in the shower, and see if it stretches out! If it wants to stretch and fall off your hiney, you could line it to prevent the stretching!
