SUMMER IS ALMOST HERE!

BIKINI SEASON means hitting the Beach!

Visit any beach and there you will find beautiful women wearing the iconic BIKINI in an array of colors and designs:  crocheted, beaded, backless, halter, strapless, bandini, minikini, monokini, sling bikini, string bikini…  A sexy 2 piece swimsuit with a past…

The name for the bikini design came from a Parisian engineer called Louis Réard, who designed the bikini in 1946 and was named after Bikini Atoll, a coral atoll in the Marshall Islands.  Within Bikini Atoll, Bikini is one of a couple of islands of the atoll that hosted a permanent population.  Bikini island is the northeastern most and largest islet.

Women and girls each year work hard to get in the shape for “bikini season” to spend vacation with their loved ones on a beautiful beach sunbathing, playing volleyball or simply to watch a beautiful sunrise or sunset.

For those of us who sell bikini’s, I have a blast creating the brief design of two triangles and panties.  They can be made out of almost ANYTHING, sometimes we do it for the simple sheer pleasure of watching others adorned in their sexy two piece enjoying the sun “AT THE BEACH”.

Largest Crochet Blanket in the WORLD
+1,800 Ladies participated
Over 3,377 SQ. Metre
173 Blankets each measuring 42 x 42
some making over 20 blankets
What an amazing sight and so inspirational.  Each member handmade their blankets and stitched them together and then finally mailed them to India to be included in this impressively inspirational event.
Once the blankets were sewn together and the record was broken, all of the blankets were donated to underprivileged people across India.  How exciting to help someone in need and be a part of such and amazing part of documented history.  I congratulate all those who participated!
Crochet can be very healing for both the creator and recipient.
