Knitting News


This post is brought to you by the color PINK.  (Sesame street reference). 

Pink is a color I least knit with and rarely wear.  However I was inspired by my flowering apple tree to dig out some pink cotton yarn from deep stash to start another cardigan.  As always I am wondering if I have enough yarn but I could make 3/4 sleeves.  Ah, the thrills I seek while being home bound.

My other new knitting project is a Helen Stewart shawl using a pink gradient (the last one in my stash).  This shawl will be a holiday gift and I know the recipient will love it.  Pink is her color.

Yesterday was a really good day because I started two new projects while knowing full well I have two projects that are close to being finished. 

What are you working on this week?

  1. It's funny how I've never been drawn to either pink or purple till this Spring and Pandemic time at home! I wonder why that is. I knit purple socks which I love and now have new yarn with purples in it. That Helen Stewart shawl is going to be gorgeous and I love the pale pink for your cardigan - reminds me of the inside of a seashell!

  2. I love the Ankers cardigan! Hmmm! I am wondering if a short-sleeved cardigan might be the perfect idea! (and I am with you on Pink, but these are gorgeous pinks!)

  3. Those pinks are both beautiful, and I think you might also need some more gradient yarn!

  4. I have been contemplating a shawl that has pink, yellow and grey. I also have two things I really want to finish before I start something new so thanks for letting me live vicariously with your new starts.

  6. I adore Pink, and am surrounded with it, in various shades!!!!! -smile-

    But I have known, that you do not resonate with those pink-red-etc. colors. The colors you live with, show this. -smile-

    The always-background-of-your-blog, is in the Yellow-ish-Green-ish Color Range.

    The yarns you knit with, and the clothing you wear, are in the Yellow-ish-Green-ish Color Range.

    Yes, I am one of those Very, Very, Very, Always Noticing people!!!!! -gigggles- And now, you know my *Secret*!!!!

    So happy you took your tip from Nature's flowering trees, and wanted to dip into _my_ color range!!!!!!!! I am thrilled. -smile-

    Gentle hugs...

  9. What a cool shawl. IM going to have to look it up. Your cardigan is classic!

  10. Oh those new projects look so much like May flowers. I predict you will enjoy both of them. Ready - set - yarn chicken on the sleeves. I'm betting you will win. There is nothing quite so glorious as casting on a shawl. I think they are my favorite items to knit.

  11. I haven't knitted for days I think. My tendonitis flares up now and then so that's why I've been trying to sew or cross stitch. I'd like to have more pink in my life.

  12. Those both look like they will be fun projects to work on. I really like that pink! I bought a fuzzy sweater in that color just for New Years Eve last year, and I think it adds a fun pop of color to my wardrobe. I finished the ornament, now thinking of what to work on next.

  13. I actually love pink although I don't often knit with it. I'm reminded that I have a few skeins in my stash, perhaps I'll cast on for a shawl :)

  14. Pink is not my color either but lately I seem to be drawn to it. I love your pink choices. They are grown-up pink not baby pink. Apparently it's baby pink that I don't like. Anyway, both of those projects will be beautiful!

  15. I find pink difficult too--either too sweet or too...something. Lately, though, I've challenged myself to find pinks that I like to wear (turns out a bold lipstick pink is a good color for my skin tone) and work them into my wardrobe. But these are really pretty pinks--I especially like the gradient one at the bottom.

  16. I am not a fan of pink, either. But that pink is muted and gorgeous. It will make a lovely sweater.

  17. I am wanting to knit another pink cardigan too, I love pink (and blue and purple). We make what we will wear though don't we? I love that you have cast on two new projects as your old ones come to an end. If I did that the old ones would not get finished. I am thinking about new projects as like you I have two coming to an end.

  18. Beautiful projects, such pretty colors. Have fun.

  19. ooohhh, Pink has become a favorite color ever since my hair color changed! (and in the vein of something New, I cast on my 2nd Anker's Shirt in a terra-cotta shade ... fingers crossed that the color works out like I hope it does!)
