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.
