In the Pink


Today I'm in the pink! One of the members of my knitting guild asked us to make a pink sweater that will be donated to an orphanage in China. Whenever a female child is adopted she is dressed in a pink sweater. I wonder who will wear this sweater. I wish her health and happiness. Sue of RI Handspun sells the pink yarn for this project at a discount if you decide you'd like to make one for the cause.

Last night I couldn't resist...I know...I know...the stash is growing...but it's just one ball! I bought one of Lisa Sousa's sock yarns in a knock out color called Mars Quake. I can't wait to get it and start the socks.

The pink sweater looks so pretty and soft. You can bring it to the guild meeting; someone will be collecting them. How nice that Sue is discounting the yarn for the project.

Did you HAVE to tell me about that Lisa Souza yarn? I've never seen anything so beautiful. And I too had just vowed to buy NO MORE sock yarn until I'd finished the current stash... Oh well, there goes another resolution.
