If you've been around here for a while, you may remember this project. This was my Spring Folly project of 2009. Most years, when spring rolls around, I am overcome by the urge to knit something cute and perky that I would never in a million years actually wear. Previous Spring Folly project include Sparkly and the Spring Fever Cami.
This particular Spring Folly may be the silliest of all, and I dearly loved knitting it. For the record, I have never worn these. I can't quite figure out in what context a pair of frilly, knitted bloomers would work in my wardrobe. Or anyone's, really. Maybe Madonna's.
Still, these are totally fun. If I had a little girl to knit for, I would totally size these down and make a pair for her. I think they'd be adorable on someone under the age of five.
Since I am a bit over the age of five, these live in my closet and have come out only this one time since I finished them a year and a half ago.
