         I love to crochet, but mostly I just do uncomplicated baby afghans.  But I knew I had to get in on this challenge.  I picked up three spools of prismatic curling ribbon at the 99 cent store and was inspired to make a stylin' gold bikini, a la the Princess Leia slave bikini in Return of the Jedi.  But I didn't have a pattern.  I decided to google it.  You wouldn't think "crochet bikini pattern" would be quite so porn-a-rific, but...yeah.  Wow.

        At any rate, please enjoy my scratchy gold bikini.  Please excuse the model.

Heheheh.  "How you doin', Cookie Monster?"

Oh man have you seen the Family Guy episode where Cookie Monster is addicted and is found in the bathroom squeezing readymade cookie dough onto a spoon and lighting it?
The ribbon is pretty.  Was Leia's made out of gold chain?  I can't recall.

         It appears to have been metal-trimmed lame.  I just called it that so Cookie Monster wouldn't look like a South Beach houseboy.
