:heart:

I'm knitting up the bikini in the Stitch 'n' Bitch book as a gift for my hubby for Valentine's Day. It's so much fun to knit! I think part of that may be anticipation of Valentine's Day ;) and the fact that I'm hiding it from him :inlove:

Can't with till it's done, but I wanted to share a first bit with you ...

It's the first time I have done any color work, so that's been fun too.

Happy :heart: Day! :-P :cool:

My girls are not small by any stretch of the imagination ... I figure it's just for me and my hubby, so them not exactly fitting is no biggie :mrgreen: :wink:

That looks great...I have to admit when I first saw it, (keep in mind I am REALLY tired today so please take no offense - none was intended) I wondered if the bikini came with a hat...hahahaha. I'm such a dork. :aww:

Seriously, what a great project and I know your DH will LOVE it!!! :muah:

LOLOL!! And I thought, now that is a SUPER simple knitted item that would create lots of pillowtalk! Okay, but you know the banana and oranges will fit in there... for short while anyways:teehee:
