A Rose By Any Other Name...

I’m still in the stripe section of Ondine, but I’m at the point now where the cream colored stripes are smaller than the pink stripes.

Can I just take a moment to say that not only is this yarn super soft, I am falling head over heels in love with the color - English Rose.  It’s just so very pink, and yet there are so many pinks within the pink.  As I knit it, I’m planning more projects, knit with more English Rose!  Not only does it come in this yarn base (Mechita, fingering weight singles), but also in Rios (worsted weight, super wash), and I think it would make a beautiful pair of socks (in the Sock base).  I’m thinking a striped pullover in more of these two yarns, maybe a worsted weight cowl, a worsted weight cardigan (or sport weight, if English Rose comes in Malabrigo Sport, and why wouldn’t it?), and of course socks.

The funny thing is, I fell just as hard for Malabrigo’s rich, deep greens in Aguas last summer when I knit the Storyteller Vest.  I have some Aguas in Sport in my stash for a shawl and some in Sock for, well, socks.  I clearly need to take a better look at Malabrigo’s colors because at this point, they’re two for two in knocking me out with the color punch!

Have a great weekend!  Hopefully I’ll get a lot done on Ondine and then I’ll get back to working on several projects at a time, so I can blog about more than one thing, every day!

I have some English Rose in the sock weight. Our LYS had all pink yarn on sale this weekend in honor of the new princess. Not only did I love the color, the color name seemed appropriate. Right now I'm thinking shawlette...not sure I can hide that color down on my feet!
