It's no secret I'm a sports fan, so with the Labor Day weekend comes the US Open Tennis tournament.
I wished I had pictures of me in my little tennis dress, that my Mom made me, back in the day. That was the only "dress" I would wear back then because it had little shorts under it!
With that said I found a "quick" knitting project to try...finished it in 2 days!
I used some left over Blue Sky Alpaca Dyed Cotton and the remnants of the Blue Heron Cotton Seed held together.
Yep, I made a bikini top! I know...you are saying - "At your age?" Well, from what I saw last year at the beach if an 80 year old can wear a bikini then maybe I can pull it off too! I'm not sure that I'll wear it, we'll just have to wait and see.
You ask..."What are the tennis balls for?"
Blocking - That's about all I have to offer!
When I blocked it out I discovered a problem with the Blue Heron yarn...it's NOT color safe! This could answer why this particular yarn is no longer offered, I don't know.
So I immediately put the Sarong in a vinegar water bath~~
After just a few minutes this is what I found~~
I certainly hope this doesn't happen to me at the beach!
This does upset me about this yarn...it was NOT cheap!
As for the US Open, I happen to be pulling for this cutie!
It was funny yesterday he was on the practice court...there were women laying on their bellies looking under the netting that give privacy screaming at him!! He just gave his humble smile...looking very embarrassed.
Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!
