I have just started a Thong-a-Long to honor the new staff projects from Interweave Knits.  They are free : pretty socks, a thong, a camisole, a nightie...

I need to know about yarn substitutions though...

I'm making the camisole!  I'm using Royal Bamboo yarn in color 1920.  So far so good.  I love the feel of this bamboo yarn.  Marykz

I have been wondering about this (and knitting along) too.  I have not had much opportunity yet to knit with many different fibres, even cotton is still novel to me.

I have heard that silk, cotton, bamboo and soy are all suitable for intimates (so now I am keeping an eye out for them).  I was wondering about tencel.  Does anyone have any thoughts on this?  I am guessing it would not be any good, but I stumbled across a few balls of it recently.  It intrigued me, and I realized I really know nothing about that fibre.

Thanks for asking!!  so far, so good- I'm about 4 1/2 inches into the initial stockinette stitch for the body.  So, no tricky parts yet. I'm enjoying working with the bamboo yarn- smooth, easy to knit with and such pretty colors.  (light pink, yello, tan and beige)  I'm having fun!  I'll try to post a pic-in-progress tomorrow.... MKZ

I saw that camisole and it is definitely up there on my "to-do" list now (right after I finish up a couple of other projects...)

tencel should be fine. tencel is made of plant pulp, much like rayon. so it breathes.
wikipedia has a nice, thorough article on tencel. i think it'd be a great sub.

I am going to attempt the camisole in some beautiful mercerized cotton and will let you know about that!

Here's my progress on the camisole thru the endless stockinette... I didn't measure today but I think about 6 1/2 inches through on the way to 11.  (this goes to 11- ha!)
I'm using Royal Bamboo in a pretty tan, pink, yello, cream mix.  it is kinda hard to see in the picture.  My camera was being cranky.  Half the pictures too dark, others overexposed... (sigh)



time to join a new ball..... Marykz

I already knit the thong and posted it over in the knitalong. I'm trying to figure out what to knit with the other 190 yards of turquoise soysilk I have....

that yarn is so pretty mkz!

i went with a dark teal, but it wasn't bamboo.  i actually ended up deciding to knit the lace nightie instead of the camisole.

Juniperl13, I think you could make a matching top or bra.  That would be sexy!!

Then maybe a scarf and hat?

I don't think 36D bras were ever meant to be handknit. I've been sort of thinking about a camisole, but the last few camisoles I knit were disasters. Apparently I am not destined to wear lace knit in any yarns thicker than fingering weight.  Undecided

Thought I'd post this since some mentioned bamboo for projects here. I just got some bamboo yarn from here:

http://www.discontinuedbrandnameyarn.com/dbny/bamboo.html

I got the purple which is a nice dusty purple. I thought I was going to make a sweater, but maybe a camisole instead!
