in the pink


i am a total sucker for anything pink. and lacey. and soft. especially at the end of winter when everything outside my window is a shade of drab. or at least it was when i purchased the lacey lamb and silken straw to make this springy scarf from purl soho.

today, the sun is out, the forsythia is in full bloom, and i actually walked the dog all the way down to the coffee shop for the first time in nearly three months. and, as if life inside the pink bubble weren't happy enough already, i also recovered my old ibook which was snatched from our house over a year and a half ago by a hooded intruder. more on that later. for now, i must go outdoors and bask in the hot pink global warmth of a rare day on the sunny side of the street.

This pink has brightened up my mood while I'm studying for finals. It also makes me miss knitting. I've challenged myself not to knit until post finals because once I start, there's no telling when I'll put the needles down. :-)

I love love love this color. It's been so grey this spring.

Your hooded intruder story sounds scary. Glad you recovered your old ibook!
