I used to love the color pink. Powder pink, dusty pink, rose. I stopped wearing it when I was a newspaper photojournalist stringing for the NY Times & news mags. I found I was patronized when I wore the girly colors. Sad, but true. I simply got out of the pink habit.
project: Bunny Blanket Buddy
needles: us7 for the "body" and ears, us4 for the head
notes: as usual, I didn't read through the pattern until I was working on that head. I wondered about the choice of stitch pattern....and then realized what the what? I am DOUBLE KNITTING! I do not know why I have avoided it all my life, I thought it sounded confusing and super tedious. It is neither. It is a fabulous way to create a head to be stuffed.
Also, love this yarn. Super lofty, superwash.
(no shortage of sweet pink around here now)
I'm setting up a pretty brisk schedule of talks and teaching. Can't wait!
