Pink, pink and more pink!
I'm not sure how it all started but I've been a little obsessed with pink stuff recently. It may of begun when I started knitting the hot pink cowl pictured above in Portland Maine. When I saw the chunky yarn, it reminded me of fairy floss, delicious and so pretty and pink I could almost eat it!
There was a tiny bit of the yarn left over that my friend David, who has recently just learned how to crochet, made this super cute bow headband! It actually keeps my head warm too! Can you believe that David has only been crocheting for about 2 months?!!
Speaking of just learning... I have decided to attempt knitting socks! I have been knitting on and off for about 25 years but never tried socks. I saw the gorgeous pink and grey Noro yarn and decided to give it a whirl. The lady at the yarn store was great and gave me a lovely simple pattern and it seems to make sense to me.
Though I really can't believe the size of the needles that I'm knitting on either! They are 2.5mm which are tiny in my large hands. I keep wondering if I'm going to snap them?
I've had this for ages but this is one of my favorite bottle openers and yep, it's pink! I bought it from ikea and it's very ergonomic in your hand. The great thing is because it's so bright, it is easy to find in the draw.
What's your feelings on pink? Is it too girly? Does it remind you of your childhood?
