WIP: Bikini for Valentine's Day


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

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 Day!

That's adorable! I have that book and I always look at the pattern....I don't know if the girls would fit if you know what I mean!

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

That is so cute, and your DH will be thrilled maybe he'll even send you to the yarn store so you can make more!

Have fun knitting it!

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.

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