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?
