    (And that's so neat about Newsweek. I bet we'll get a bunch of new ladies in this forum!)

    I wonder if this is the story Jean meant. If so, Get Crafty ended up on the cutting room floor.

    Style: Skimpy Stitches
    Newsweek
    June 7 issue
    Show off your curves—and crafts— this summer with the latest trend in knitting: bikinis. To start, get water-friendly yarn with "some kind of stretch," like nylon or microfiber blends, says Edith Eig of La Knitterie Parisienne (800-228-9927 for free tips) in Studio City, Calif. But stay away from whole cotton or your suit might sag. Most patterns, available at sites like knitwhits.com, are simple enough and take only a few days to complete—especially if you make two triangles for the top. Crochet the straps or use knitted cord. For your suit bottom, rely on a simple shaping technique. "Increase the fabric and decrease the fabric" to create leg holes, says Miriam Maltagliati at Knit New York. Next, try "a sexy bikini for the bedroom" that you can wear all year-round.
