tests can be fun

I'm test-knitting a super cute cardigan pattern by Suvi right now. These sleeves are so fun to make. My 5 yr. old girl's tastes are all about pinks and purples, so that's what I'm using. The main colour is fuscia and the secondary is grape - I will attempt to better differentiate them in the next photos. They are far more saturated than I would normally knit with, but they were what seemed to work together from the selection my LYS offered in this particular yarn.

Have a great weekend!


  1. Can't wait to see the finished result. My five year old daughter is ALL ABOUT pink and purple. They are her two favorite colors. We may have to copy you ;)

  2. Pretty ~ I'm looking forward to seeing it done too. My daughter used to be about pink + lavendar. Now she's into gray + red. lol

  3. Very pretty! The colors are wonderful! Can't wait to see it finished. :)
