Pink Saturday & Knitting Update

Pink Saturday is tomorrow!!! I had so much fun visiting other blogs and seeing them get their pink on!!! (My 9 yr old told me to type that. lol) Want to join in the pink fun, head over to How Sweet The Sound's Blog! My pink is this sign that was a gift from my anti pink friend, Teri. I love the saying!!!! You can say it to so many different people for so many different reasons! I have received some strange looks and funny answers from my male friends when saying this to them. My husband included. lol Happy Pink Saturday!

Now for the knitting update:

The kids and dogs haven't been able to play outside for the last few days due to a small heat wave here in southwest Ohio. Which means more knitting time inside.!!! I have finished a few items. I made a hat for a Christmas gift, from this pattern, using Lion Boucle yarn. Easy pattern but the yarn & I didn't really like one another. It was a little hard to knit with at times and kept breaking while I was stitching up the seams. Another item off the needles was a shawl to match the suntop that I made for my daughter. Any excuse to use one of my favorite cotton yarns, Peaches & Creme. Lastly, I sadly report the death of the horrible purple baby blanket. It just wasn't turning out correctly. I am now using the yarn in a new baby blanket pattern. This one will be half pink and half purple. Please keep your fingers & toes crossed that this one turns out because the sweet baby girl this is for will join the world in early November and I have other items that I would love to knit for her.  As always, Happy Knitting!

The start of the pink half of the blanket. Just realized that it looks like the shawl in this picture but it doesn't in real life.

Good Morning Sweetie...
Oh what beautiful shares today. I absolutely adore your sign. I need one of those myself. I may have to try to sketch it out, and paint on a board myself. It is wayyyy cute.

Your hat is so precious. I love the colors. Sure do wish I could knit, but sadly I am not that talented.

I love the blue coloring in your shawl. How sweet that is.

The baby blanket will be just gorgeous. It looks so soft. I can't wait to see it finished, and I would say at the rate you knit it will definitely be finished long before November.

Have a beautiful Friday.

Country hugs sweetie...Sherry

Cute knitted pieces, and I love your sign. LOL! Hope things cool off for you. We've had temps in Florida that have been lower than North Carolina. It's just crazy. But I'll take a cooler summer to a hot one any day!

Happy Pink Saturday...

Not sure what just happened, but my post didn't go through.

Love your knitted pieces AND that funny sign!

Hope things cool off up your way. We've actually had pretty decent temps in Florida these last few weeks, but earlier in June, it was broiling.

Happy Pink Saturday...

What a very funny sign and a sweet friend! We too are having a heat wave in Western New York and my dogs are going nuts because it is simply too hot to take them to the park! Happy knitting!

Happy PS,

Happy Pink Saturday, Hayley.

I love your sign. It gave me a big smile. The pink is for you, and the purple for your friend.

Good lucky with your knitting. It all looks wonderful.

Gail said...

Hi there, your knitting is wonderful, I like knitting but I have never gone very far with it because, I never learned how to get my work off the needle. Sigh. I know it is not that hard, but I just never could figure it out. LOL. I quilt instead...grin. Love that saying, too, an often remind myself of it.
Happy PS

I love the sign - I think it's an excellent phrase! :)

AC said...

I used to haaaaate pink when I was a kid. We've come to terms with each other since. What you need is to knit some pink big girl panties to tie it all together! ;P
