FO – Bachelor(ette) Party gifts

I wanted to make something for my friend Courtney’s Bachelorette Party because I had missed out on one of the party games during the Bridal shower. (Funny story of misplaced ZIP codes leading to invitations not arriving.) The idea of the game was that everyone would bring a pair of underwear and that the Bride-to-be had to decide which party guest brought which pair of underoos. So I really really wanted to knit her a thong. I had a couple great patterns laying around the house (doesn’t everyone?) I then decided to find a yarn to match their wedding colors.

For an extra bit of fun and because they don’t take long to knit, I decided to make a matching willie warmer for her groom-to-be. :) I showed up a smidgen early to the bachelorette party so that I could give both of them their gifts together before the evening’s festivities began.

Description: Mackenzie’s Surprise
Pattern: Seamless Willie Warmer by Darcy Whitlock
Yarn used: .6 skeins of Svale by Dalegarn, Colorway 7432 (50% cotton, 10% silk and 40% viscose) 50g / 114yds
Care Instructions: Machine wash
Needle Size: US 6 (4.0mm)
Modifications: The sack portion appeared to be rather large on the first pass so I knit it up a little smaller. I didn’t knit the i-cord waist string either. I just decorated it with the same ribbon from Courtney’s thong.
Finished Size: Average as per Wikipedia.
Date Started: 6/29/2008
Date Completed: 6/30/2008
Notes: To get sizing info I went out to Wikipedia. As I am sure you will know without me telling you, the recipient proclaimed that it would be too small when he opened it. ;) We shall leave it at that. Additional pictures after the jump.
