OK, I’ve gotta know whether anyone actually makes these lingerie-esque knitting projects I’ve seen in books. If you do, is it mostly for yourself or does your DH, DBF, or I suppose DGF to be equal opportunity, like what you’ve done? Are they knitters themselves?
i’ve wondered the same thing. there is a pretty thong i’ve been curious to knit, but have never taken the time to cast on.
I’ve made a camisole- it was fun to make, and it is soft to wear. I know several people were making the thong from IK, but I don’t do those things. I’ve seen a few bras and undies and bikinis as FO’s but I haven’t made any.
But the one I made, I did b/c I wanted to- DH is more interested in what’s underneath.
I’ve made the IK thong, and the thing about it is, it’s hardly any time commitment at all. Seriously, it’s the fastest thing I ever knit. I’m knitting squares for a pillow now and I think one 7 inch square takes me longer. So if you’re at all curious, it’s a good project to try.
I’m not extremely interested in knitting lingerie. No one to appreciate it anyhow. But, if there were, I maybe maybe would consider making one of these:
And in any case, I’d totally be down to knit those stockings. Hmm, actually I want to knit those right now.
I have made a camisole/chemise type top to wear in the winter for an extra layer of warmth (not to “interest” someone else). However, for the person who does enjoy knitting lingerie; I would think that they also do it for themselves. Lots of ladies like to feel pretty or sexy underneath there business/ordinary or more strait-lace attire.
I wouldn’t make it for me now… but once I lose the weight (I have a system set up where I get $10 for every kg I lose) I’m going to invest in some lovely silk and alpaca to make myself some cami’s and french knickers
