What the Girl Wants

Yes, I’ve knitted my daughter several scarves at her request, but what she really wanted was a bikini. I used the Lanikai Bikini pattern from Knitwhits in Cascade Fixation (98% cotton, 2% elastic). I must confess to adding more stitches to the bottom (hey, I’m her mom!). It’s swim-in-able, but she’s only used it for tanning.

She’s also requested a scarf in granny squares, but I’m having a hard time motivating myself to do that much crochet in about 5 different colors. We’ll see if it every becomes an FO….

I guess my philosophical point is that I’ll do virtually anything for my family … except knit something I don’t wanna! 🙂

  1. One of the first things I ever knit from a pattern was a string bikini from rebecca magazine. Your daughter is way braver than I am –I’m a boardshorts girl, I don’t know what I was thinking knitting a bikini, only Nick ever got to see it on. 😉 Fun to knit but I was too shy to wear it. You’re a good mom. 🙂

  2. Hey firefly — thanks for the compliment. I’m incredibly fortunate to have her! She’ll be going to college next year; I’m bracing myself for lots of tears (on both our parts).

    Hi Wendy — she’s a practical boardshorts gal when she surfs. She’s a bikini girl in her dancer persona. Thanks for the comment!
