Orange it great????
Youngest Daughter and I have always had differing opinions on color. She has great color sense --bright and bold but different than my love of sage and rose and coral. When she was a child, I dressed her in pink rosebud print........... play sets, dresses, nightgowns. She would out-grow one and I would buy another!
When she could express her opinion -- around 4!!!-- she made it known that she did not like pink rosebud print. She liked black. Lots of black. And if I was lucky, I could put hot pink, purple or teal with it. To this day -- she doesn't like pink.
Now -- she is a mom of a beautiful little girl. And I received a pink memo. No pink clothes. None. Youngest Daughter says she was over-dosed on pink. Hmmmmm?
So the above yarn is for a new hooded jacket for Addie. It is not pink. Not a trace.
You can see the cloud from which it was spun. Its vibrant and fun. And it is knitting up to be a beautiful jacket. The Debbie Bliss pattern is pictured below.
I'm making a few alterations on the pattern. I'm doing a seed stitch edging all around. I really don't care for the curled edges and that should eliminate that. And of course, being hand-spun, gauge and needles changed.
But just so Youngest Daughter doesn't think that I totally listen to her...........
Hot pink socks.................. after all, she needs something to go with pink rosebud print dresses!!!
