Knitted Unmentionables

Look, half-done knitted underwear! This is one half of the 1940's knickers I've been threatening to knit. I only have enough of the Nature Spun to knit the bottoms & I haven't decided whether to order some more for the top.
The photo makes them pinkish red but they're really a more fire-engine or maybe a pillarbox color. (Yes, my hair was Pillarbox Red for years) The next pairs should be black or purple. Silk maybe.

It's been almost too warm to knit these things in wool right now, but when it gets cold in a few weeks I'll be damn happy to have warm drawers. Y'know, for when the wind blows up your skirt. Wind does that.

*ponders* Didn't Dangermouse live in a pillarbox?

I'm still lusting after the Iva Rose Weldon's undies book. That one on the cover is just screaming for me to spin up the yarn & knit it. Don't you hear it? You don't?

*Quietly slinks away*

The knitted part looks gorgeous so far! Perfect for lounging about the home with a martini cocktail on the weekends. It looks super soft.

Severina, I tried to order using Paypal from Iva Rose last week and it didn't work. Have you had any problems?

I'll admit I'm still at the "lusting" stage with Iva Rose's patterns! I usually buy original patterns instead of reprints unless it's something I can't find. I haven't heard of anyone over at the Vintage KAL having problems and those girls buy stuff from there all the time.

Hopefully it's just a computer glitch because I sooo want some of those patterns.

Have you tried e-mailing her?

You know, I did send her an email without getting a response but I may just try purchasing again and then pop another one over to her if it fails. . . . Ha, maybe she thinks I'm just an online wackadoo or something.

I was going to get this book although now you're tempting me with the pretty undies book! Curses!!
