Pink Overload

I’m really not much of a PINK person. I never have been. You could even describe me as the anti-pink. Yet somehow, I am awash in the pink WiPs…

This set is just about done — I need buttons, which I hope to find this weekend (the shower is next weekend). I like the way it all turned out, and I hope it is enjoyed! I enjoyed knitting it all and think it is cute. I’ll post stats once I officially finish it all.

Icarus, so simple and elegant

I love Miriam’s designs. Eda (Poking My Eyes Out) sent me this yarn, two hanks of Cherry Tree Hill Possum Lace. It’s gorgeous, soft, and really enjoyable to knit. I was concerned about knitting a lace pattern with it due to the variegation, but I think it works out well with this pattern. I quickly get tired of purling back these rows though.

araucania nature cotton — so soft, so bright!

I am loosely knitting this based upon Stefanie Japel’s Boatneck Bluebell in Fitted Knits. But I reserve the right to turn it into a plain ol’ raglan pullover.

With all of this eye-scorching pink, it’s no wonder I have been reaching for the very neutral top and the Monkeys the past few days…

monkey!

Yea, I gave in. Sue me! I’m loving the Tess yarn.

    I love all the pink, and the Monkey socks are looking good. They work well with that yarn.

    *sigh* I always have wanted to make Icarus. I adore the color you’re knitting it with right now. (Must learn to knit faster! – you’re sick of hearing me say that, aren’t you?)

    Hey, at least they’re all great shades of pink. There are good pinks and bad pinks, but all yours are fantabulous.

    Also yay monkeys! I so love that pattern.

    Look at all that pink! Those monkey’s are a great color – isn’t it an addictive pattern?

    Loving the pinkitude-and especially the BSJ. The cherry blossom ended up being totally perfect! So cute.
