March - Project Spectrum!

Today we get to start working on the brilliant Lolly's Project Spectrum, and March is for pink and red.
I thought the first thing I'd do this morning, while I'm hanging out waiting for my laundry to dry so that I have clothes to wear, is pick out some pieces of inspiration to ponder over the next few weeks while I'm knitting and otherwise crafting in shades of pink.
Preliminary thoughts:
I've started this with leftover mitten yarn, and it reminds me of strawberry milk. I also have more of the darker pink left - not sure what to do with that yet.
I'm really liking the combination of red/pink/coral with turquoise and sky blue! I'll have to get the markers out this weekend. (Clothes from anthropologie. Wish I could own them)
These are pretty much my favorite pink characters from a book. If you haven't met Toot and Puddle, run (don't walk!) to a bookstore and see how cute they are! I mean, look at their clothes! Awww.
Oh, and have you met my muse? He sits on my crafty table, but he's especially appropriate for this month, when I want to work on pink circles and rosy cheeked critters and birds.
Are you all ready to start crafting in color? Can't wait to see your projects :)

I'm so excited about Project Spectrum, too!! Your pink and white yarn reminds me of those lifesaver cream lollipops! Yum! Your pink monkey is the cutest, too. ;-) TAke care, Allison! :-)

Can't wait to see your pink & red projects. This weekend I'll get busy on mine.

Let me know if you read any of the books & what you think of them.

You know what? I almost forgot about Project Spectrum. And I just finished a project that I had meant for Project Spectrum. But there's always more...
