Pink Saturday

Pink Purl mentioned earlier this week that How Sweet the Sound has started Pink Saturdays. Since pink is my absolute favorite color, I thought I'd play even though I didn't sign up. I don't have much to show.Some pink mushrooms we bought at the Los Osos Farmer's Market last Monday.Some pink and yellow lantana I grew from a little slip I stole from my neighbors bush a couple of year ago.Oh, and some really dark pink socks, this is a knitting blog, after all. Actually they're pretty much burgundy colored, but that's practically pink. I've been working on this sock all week. This is my second pair of Loksins, and I think they will be my last. I love the way the pattern looks and it's certainly not a difficult one to memorize. I just don't think they're made for my brain. I'll get knitting away without thinking, and then I'll discover that the pattern is off, and I'll have to unravel five or six rows. I wouldn't mind doing that every once in a while, but I've had to do it at least six or seven times for this one sock. It's me, not the pattern. I should be concentrating more, but because the pattern is so easy I don't. I kind of remember that happening to me the first time I knit these socks. I'm a loser.

Merit tagged me for an alphabet game last week. I don't think I care to check for sure, but it seems like I have more negative adjectives than positive ones. Oh well, I'm being honest. Julie, Janice, and Hege, consider yourselves tagged...only if you want to be:)

Love you pink post, Caroline! Those mushrooms are so pretty...I don't think I've seem any quite pink like that. Do you know what type they are? Those pink/yellow lantanas are sweet, aren't they? They kind of remind me of the kids' cereal "Fruity Pebbles"--LOL! Your pink socks are beautiful--love the lacey, openwork. Fun to read your meme! Hope this find you & yours having a happy weekend! ((HUGS))

I've never seen pink mushrooms before. They look like rose petals. What do they taste like?

The sock is so pretty! You'll be glad you knit them when you're finished. :)

Love the flower quiz! I may have to take that myself.

Your socks look lovely. Sorry the pattern is giving you such fits. The pink mushrooms are really cool and sculptural. I hope they taste as good as they look.
