Of Pink and Blue

I haven't been using pink yarns for a pretty long time. I can't even remember when was the last time. I was having a crush for pink a while ago, so here's a WIP in pink . Molly Ringwald from Knitscene Fall 06, second pattern I'd knit from (CPH was the first).
I did quite a real bit of modifications, which is unlikely of me. I tried to knit this in the round, however it seems way too huge. So huge that it can fit 2 of me in it. Thus I had to rip 1 ball worth of yarn. What you see now is the finished front piece. I'll cast on the back after updating the blog.

Next is Rusted Root, not really rusted in my case. In the picture, its almost done minus the 12 rows of ribbing. As I'm blogging now, its being dried for washing after wearing for the first time. I worn it to the office and got good comments on it. Totally cool from co-workers who don't knit. I'll try to get a pic of me in it.

Back to my weekend knitting.

I love the colours of your Rusted Roots. Can't wait to see them worn (and maybe in person too? ;P)
