Funny story as we all shop clearance. My husband's SIL found a knit bikini kit on clearance. Since she needed a 50's bday gift for a friend, she thought it would be cute to say you may be old enough to sit in a rocking chair and knit but you are still hot enough to wear a bikini. (No insult meant by all of us knitters being little old ladies) Everyone had a good laugh. 6 months later, my husband's brother severely injured his knee and had 90 days of leg immobility. SIL's friend gave the bikini kit to him and said now that you have the time, why don't you knit it up. I took the kit and DID knit it. (can't imagine anyone ever wearing it) and it was given back to the original recipient with, 'now you have to model it'. Larry said he taught himself to knit. I played naive. Who would have ever thought everyone would have so much fun with a silly clearance kit.
