Cotton Candy

Pink!
No,
PINK!
To say that I am in love is an understatement. I keep wanting more pink on my needles.
This pink is I Love This Cotton, and has a 180 yards per skein, so it's really a value, altho I have heard it pills tremendously. Nevertheless, it worked to refine my customized raglan design and I'll jump back to luscious merino for the next project.
This is the unblocked view, as it is majorly cotton, I am afraid it will grow longer and longer as I wear it, so the sleeves may get reknit shorter, as they are just the right length at the moment.

These last few projects have opened my eyes to new-to-me techniques, and my confidence has grown.


I never posted the finished Kimono Cardi, so I am now. I put it on a curtain rod, suspended between the shelves of my fabric stash. It is going to a reader in NSW Australia today! It's colder there this time of year. It's great to have someone like my knits enough to want them for themselves!

Since that worked so well for shooting the Kimono, here's Cotton Candy on the rod too.

    The pink sweater looks stunning! Who knew!!! When I saw the beginning I thought 'meh'...too many candy colours. But the finished garment is really nice. You are the fastest knitter I have ever 'read'.
