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!
