For it being a really busy time with work, I am making surprisingly good progress on my V-Neck t-shirt.
It is magically soft and I LOVE the pattern. Super easy to follow. Only a few head scratches along the way. Nothing a good nights sleep and fresh eyes couldn't figure out.

OK Ladies...I'm 99% done the fun garter underwear from the Knitting Lingerie Book...
All that is left is sewing on the garter straps. They are ready, just need to assemble the single sided hooks that I just picked up from the fabric store. Loved the look on the ladies face when I said I have just finished knitting a pair of underwear and just needs the closures to attach the garter straps. Without assuming she has never rocked a pair of garter strap underwear, lets just say she turned an interesting shade of red as I explained to her how awesome they were and that I couldn't wait to find a pair of stockings to attach to the straps. It doesn't take much to make me happy...that was the highlight of my day a couple days ago.
This is without question the most expensive pair of underwear I will ever own. It needed two balls of yarn, and they were not cheap balls. If I wear them once, to say I have, that will be enough. I used Dye Version's Bamboo Sock yarn in "Rustico". 93% Bamboo and 7% Lycra which gives them a great stretch. In order to get the proper gauge I had to use three strands together, so they are think. Certainly not for a thin pair of pants. More like a loose skirt..or as Esther would say...perfect for my snow pants when I go sledding this winter.
Gina....anything on your needles from this awesome book?
