It is PINK SATURDAY. My friend Beverly of How Sweet The Sound is again hosting a PINK SATURDAY . Check out her blog and visit all the PINK posts today.
I'm a little bit sad about today's post. I'll tell you why in a minute.
I have made several market bags the last few months. I think I've posted them all on the blog here. This pink bag is one I am making for a special "pink" friend. I've already made her a pink scarf and a pink basket, and a pink dishcloth. Hopefully she will enjoy it, although I don't think she does much shopping on her own...I think the market does it all for her. (Not that she is spoiled or anything!!)
I've been knitting along steadily on this bag and took a picture to post for Pink Saturday. It was a bit of an overcast day yesterday and the lighting wasn't very good so I took the bag out to the deck to take a better picture. Here is the sad part: I noticed as I was taking the picture that the yarn I joined to the first skein is a different shade of pink!!!!! I'm so sad. I wanted this to be perfect for her! You can see that about halfway up the color changes. Britt has offered to take the inferior bag off my hands if I want to knit another bag for my friend. I am disappointed that I didn't notice it sooner when I could have ripped it out and started over again.
