Think Pink!

A strange thing is happening and I can only blame it on the advent of Spring- I'm being drawn to pink! 

It started with some yarn I, um, stumbled across and before I knew it I had thrown it in my Etsy cart and placed my order. It came in the mail last week and I've been pondering a pattern that will make the most of the color shift between the light turquoise and bright coral pink. Suggestions? If I unhank the skein, half of it is coral and half is turquoise with little bits of white between the two colors.

I did some secret knitting for a swap (you can see it under the yarn in the back) in, you guessed it, pink. I'll be doing a full blog post after the swap and you'll be able to see the entire project. What I can say about it is that the yarn is lovely lovely lovely.

On my way home from work yesterday I stopped at the store to pick up some things and decided to treat myself with some new nail polish. I ended up with Essie's Pink Diamond and Wet & Wild Fergie in Hollywood Walk of Fame. If you're going to go pink you may as well go all the way and add some sparkle, no?

Little A is thoroughly enjoying my foray into pink and is making suggestions as to knitting projects and future polish purchases. We'll see how long this color obsession lasts.


  1. Yay, Funny Face! Quite lovely colors. And I love Little A being such a helper :)

  2. Awesome! There's nothin' wrong with a little pink now and again. I love pink and I always will! Good on Little A!
