Pink Knitting

First, I joined Rebakah’s Yarn Focus Challenge again this year. That’s what the newest ticker is all about up there. So far, so good, though Madrona is this weekend, so I’m betting that one of my “free” days gets used up.

In pink knitting, I’m still working on those pink STR socks. The last few months have been sort of hopeless on the knitting front around here. I’ve made it to my “weekly” knitting night maybe twice, and haven’t started (or finished!) a project in ages. I made a bit of progress on these last night while catching up on Desperate Housewives and Battlestar Galactica.


A few more episodes worth of knitting, is what I’d guess. What we need around here is a good bluegrass festival, with lots of knitting time. (Guess what’s coming up, soon!)

And more pink:


That’s Cotton Ease, from the stash. It’s a swatch, in case you hadn’t guessed. I can’t tell you what it’s for, as it’s for a baby-on-the-way*, and her mom occasionally reads the blog. All I have to say is that they better be right about it being a girl. And that color is pretty accurate. It really is that shade of pink.

Here’s something I found on the camera that’s most decidedly not pink.


That’s Will. Isn’t he a handsome boy? Though I think he looks a little grumpy there, I must have woke him up for the photo.

Last but not least, my Monday Sky. I’ve missed Saturday Sky countless times, and usually don’t think about it until I’m making the blog rounds and see everybody else’s pictures. Yes, it really is that gloomy around here today.


I prefer to think of that as five days early, not two days late.

*See previous post. This is the Mystery Knitting Project For Baby Riley. Hereafter known as MKPFBR. Angie, I hope you like Pepto Pink!

  1. You sky is just about the total opposite of mine 🙂
    You’ve been knitting those socks forever Lorette!! I know, cause I knit them too!
    Your Willie is indeed a handsome dude!

  2. Will is quite handsome … I’ll bet he would contrast quite nicely with the pink (except then everyone would think he was a sissy, I guess.)
    The socks are looking good!

  3. I love the pink socks! It’s such a great shade of pink. I haven’t had much knitting progress these days either. But my wheel is smokin! 🙂

  4. Love those pinks!!! My socks are all looking pretty drab these days. You have inspired me to brighten up!! I admire your dedication to controlling yarn purchases. On the other hand, you can see your purchases as supporting the knitting industry and the yarn shop owners, who are not getting rich!! Acquiring yarn is really a harmless addiction–if you aren’t spending food and morgage money–and it can be a decorators item if you have nice display shelves!!

  5. Will does look quite serious in that post, like he’s contemplating the meaning of life and how superior cats really are to dogs.
    That’s a lot of pink.

  6. You go girl – the Yarn Focus Challenge was a blast last year! And I ADORE those pink STR socks! hmm…sock yarn doesn’t count in Knit From Your Stash 2007…lolol!
    Will is a very serious kitty…and very pretty!
